Oh baby it's cold outside


Oooh hello! are you all getting ready for the festivities?  It may surprise a few of my friends but I absolutely LOVE Christmas.  Usually an old cynic lol! but this time of year and to the annoyance of my family I have the festive tunes on the radio, cd and tv! and don't stop singing.  I have officially broken up from work for a week and now can truly be merry.

My card today was inspired from a memory of nine year old me wearing an argyle jumper with this sort of pattern on it - gorgeous lol!  Have a great day everyone and I think I will be back before the big day - eeek! can't wait.
