Gingerbread Man

Good Morning blogging friends. I hope this finds you all fit and well and avoiding those nasty bugs that are floating round.
Today it is lovely sunshine...Thank goodness....yesterday was snow! I feel so much better when the sun shines, so today the washer is on and I have a mental list of 'TO DO's'. Lets hope I achieve them!!

So before I head off to the craft room (grin).........well the washer is doing the house work today isn't it?.......I have a Christmas card to share with you. This card has taken so long to come together so that I was happy with it, and has sat on my desk in several stages until  I had a'light bulb' moment and BINGO...I made two the same while I was on a roll!!    How can one get excited about bits of card??

Everything is made from Snippets of varying I am rushing to the Playground this week before it snows again.
The Gingerbread man is a Tonic die and the greeting is LOTV. The washi tape was a find on my travels that just fitted the bill !
So a handful of C Cards down and umpteen to go!..............all the important family ones still to crack on with!

Hubby and I had a good but tiring time at the NEC visiting all the shows last week. Managed to do quite a bit of the Christmas shopping and I didn't spend too much on crafty bits for feeling pleased with myself (smug grin here)...........and just to sicken those people that keep reminding us there are only so many days/sleeps left to Christmas.......some of the presents are already wrapped! (another smug grin and a wink).

Right coffee time.....anyone for joining me?........then its on with the 'To Do's'.

Thanks for stopping by, I love it when you do, especially if you let me know you have been.

Take care everyone and enjoy your, crafting or relaxing (notice housework was not mentioned) or whatever you are doing and see you all again next week I hope.
