Merry Christmas Molly

Well we've reached December! Managed to make Brent agree to buying a real tree today and have decorated it - wasn't without its drama though, bought the tree, got the decs out of the loft and then realised that the tree stand broke a couple of years ago so we had nothing to put the tree in! Sunday trading laws mean that most shops shut at 4pm ona sunday but on checking on line I found that the Range is open 11 - 5 and not 10 - 4. But I only found this out at 4.45 - luckily we are not far from the range (and with a little bit of speeding in our little Alfa Romeo!) we managed to get to the range with a few minutes to spare and hurrah we have a decorated tree in place! Only 'downside' as this took up loads of time I didn't have time to cook a roast, shame we had to have pizza instead!

Now back to the important crafty stuff!

Here is the card I made for my crafty buddy Karen and I tried to make it in her style as much as possible! I managed to use 3 patterened papers (I struggle with this quite often), plus it has flowers, ribbon and corners - just not pink or Tilda (Which are her fav's!) - Still hope you like it Karen!

Merry Christmas and keeping everything crossed for you and your family for 2013!

Hope you all like this too!
