Hello Everyone, here I am with my last post for this year, and hoping you are well today and coping with all the Christmas preparations.
I thought I would be putting up the decorations today, but Alistair has come down with a nasty cold and is keeping to his bed. I've trying to explain to him that there is a difference between the cold and the flu as he can't understand why when he has had the flu injection that he should have a cold, oh I sometimes need the patience of a saint, and I am certainly not one of those. Anyway, I need a bit of help with the deccies, so they will have to wait until he feels a bit better.
Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my previous card.
Damian has just popped in with Moreen's gifts for me to wrap, she's a lucky lady I can tell you, I rather fancy the new dressing gown myself. Thankfully, he has brought the wrapping paper, ribbons and bows, and it's a purple theme this year.
Alistair and I decided to not do the gift thing in a big way this year, well what do we need, and I think we will try to get a holiday deal after the year instead, just a few days in a nice hotel, just to recharge the batteries. We usually find somewhere that's offering a DBB three nights for two sort of thing.
Here is my final card;
Photo is not good, It's an Indigo Blue image and inked in green, not showing well though, and gold WOS. LC Sentiment and a snowflake embossed background.
It's for our neighbour who works in forests so we thought a card with trees would be appropriate for him. The real life one is much better.
For many folks this time of year can be so difficult and sad, Christmas is portrayed as a family time and for many people that is just not the case, and for others it's a time where loved ones are missed, for many reasons, I always think it's good to keep that in mind and count our blessings.
I thought I would leave you with our new Christmas decoration that Alistair made for the garden,
Isn't he lovely, I tried to photograph him in the dark so that the lights in his antlers lit up, but the camera wasn't playing ball. A local garden centre wanted £55 for one very similar, get on yer bike my hubby said I can make that, and so he did.
Wishing You All a Very Merry Christmas and Health and Happiness in the coming New Year, and one that doesn't go quite so fast as this one has, look after yourselves and I'll see you in 2016
May Bank Holiday special offer :-)
