Happy holidays

This is my contender for this week's Stamp with us challenge, which is simply a Christmas theme. A happy coincidence I had started to make this card already but was waiting for my Stampin' Up! order and my red gingham ribbon. I think this will be one of my mass production Christmas card send outs for this year. I may have to tweak it a bit and add a bit of bling, not quite sure yet.

Just to make you all jealous (sorry) I had the biggest bit of fresh out of the oven bread (hubby also made that - lucky me) with lashings of butter and blackberry jam yesterday morning - it was heavenly hhhhmmmmmm. Anyhoo the very lovely and super talented Clare has very kindly given me an award, thank you so much Clare - please stop by and say hi.

Have a great day & see you on Monday xx

I love this layout - it works so well for both your thank you card and christmas, in fact you could use it for ANY occasion! Hmmmm you got me thinking about my future masculine cards....
I've just scoffed some peanut butter on toast and felt quite content until you've rubbed in your fresh bread LOL!
Have a super duper weekend sweetie!

Thats Lovely Emmea, O God, people are making Christams cards already!! The stupid thing is that (as I wasn't a crafter until June this year) I bought a shed load of cards in the January sales trying to be thrifty!!! Thats backfired on me now,LOL. Yummy bread and jam, I love the smell of fresh bread. I can't walk past a bakery without going in! Jane xx
