Sorry - Another Christmas Card

Just a quick post tonight dear friends.  It has been so cold today.  I think it is the wind chill factor. Brrr!!  We also had a very heavy sleet downpour around lunch time.. Warning of what is to come I guess.

Despite startin g my Christmas cards early I am now very much behind.  I think I slowed down thinking I had loads of time and then fell behind.  When I worked full time I was so totally organised!  Retirement has a lot to answer for. Lol! I'm going to have to get my skates on.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

My usual 6 x 6 inch card.  I matted it with red card stock and then added some snippets of Papermania Home for Christmas. The image is one of the Christmas Elves by Mo Manning which I purchased  from the Hobby House.  The poinsettias are from my stash and I have had them a long time so don't know where I bought them.  I was going to remove the yellow centres but then decided they added another pop of colour. The red pearls are also from the Hobby House. The sentiment is Little Claire Designs die cut with SB Lacy Circles. And obviously I just had to had some glitter. Well, it's Christmas!

Well that's all from me today.  Hope everybody is feeling okay.

What a great card! I love the cute image and you coloured it so well!!
I am also still going on with making christmascards, but I am not so far behind because I am entering the '52 Weeks of Christmas' by my daughter Yvonne nearly every week and that's great, because there is no stress now.
Over here it's cold too. Seems that winter is coming next week, so we will prepare!
Have a nice day,
Lia xx

p.s. Am (temporarily) turning to CAS because I heard a rumour that it's easy to mass produce. I'm not so sure that's true for me! ;-)
