Christmas Story

Hi Peeps.  Hope you are all well?  Tomorrow I am off to the NEC, so if any of you are going look out for my ugly mug.  Lol!!!  Don't forget to say hi if I don't recognise you.

  I am being good and trying to continue with making Christmas cards for my box.  So if Christmas is too soon for you, LOOK AWAY NOW!!!!

My Odd Sized Card on a Stand - (In fact it would have fitted in an 8 x 8 envelope if I hadn't put the sentiment on the top)


Showing the Pearl Card Stock and embossing on the bells better.
