A late Christmas card...

Luckily I'm only late blogging it - it's my mum's Christmas card and it was finished on Christmas Eve, which is quite good going for me lol :o)  Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!  We had a great time, although we've all had this rotten cold that just won't go away.  I got a Kindle for Christmas and I'm just a teeny bit hooked on it already... hubby liked it so much he went out today and got himself one!  And he doesn't even read really - men and their gadgets eh?  I also got a light tent that I've been so looking forward to getting, but one of the lights doesn't work so I'll have to wait for that to be sorted... boo!



I used one of the LOTV cute die cut images, with a touch of glamour dust added.  The papers are Dovecraft with red cardstock from Papermill Direct and textured kraft card from Stampin' Up.  Sentiment is Craftwork Cards, snowflake was cut with a Cuttlebug die, red pearl from my stash.

Hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things properly soon, isn't it hard to get going again after you've had a break?!

Wow this is lovely Lisa, hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas and good luck hitting the sales in January for your 'new papers' ha ha ha... although I could use a personal ban on impulse buying too, my sin is digital stamps, most of which I might add, I see here on your blog, so... it's all your fault!
Happy New Year, Fae xxx
