The First Day of Christmas

Good morning friends and fellow bloggers.  Hope you are all feeling well, and if not please consider that you have just had a virtual hug from me!

Well here I am posting for the second day in a row. John has gone to the dentist so the laptop is all mine! Yippee!

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

My usual 6 x 6 inch card. The topper is one of the ones I bought a couple of weeks ago and I quite like them.  As I said at the time I never buy these sort of sticker type toppers but these are actually really nice so I made an exception.  There are a few more to come so be prepared!  The green plaid paper is a snippet I found in my box so not sure where it is from.  I have a feeling it is a digi paper from goodness knows where.
The tiny poinsettias are from WOC and the pearls are from the  Hobby House pearl in the centre. I computer generated the sentiment and then matted it onto an SB Lacy Circles die cut.

Well I shall get off so that I can do some blog visiting before the master returns for his computer!!
