One week to blast off!

Well hello everyone. I do hope you are well and not too stressed out with all the Christmas preparations.

I won't keep you long as I know you are busy, but thought a Christmas card  would be goes...three, all a variation on the same die...a Crafters Companion die which I love......

I am sure they speak for themselves.
Apologies if the photos are not brilliant but the light has not been good recently.

So we escaped the snow here in West Yorkshire thankfully, I hope it wasn't too bad where you are.

OK are you ready for Christmas? I just have the cake to ice and marzipan. it never gets cut on Christmas Day as everyone is full of dinner, so this year I have only made a small one as hubby and I end up eating it all...not good for the figure!!

I'll let you get stop by later in the week though to see the card I made for hubby...and a mince pie and a tipple if you are! I'm off to tidy Christmas craft stuff away now till next year!...see to that cake and the usual mountain of ironing in threat from snow on the top it's so big!!!

Till then, thank you for popping by today, take care and see you soon.
Crafty Christmas hugs

  11. I can see why you love that die, beautiful! The village is wonderfully inviting; a place where I'd like to book a room and spend some time, wandering the shops (that I know are filled with unique trinkets) and strolling the neighbourhoods. I'm at my mom's for Christmas; made the 4 hour drive just ahead of the snow! A cold Christmas Eve day here at -19C right now - and for Christmas Day, with windchill, -31C! Brrrrr...we'll be heading to Christmas Eve service later this afternoon, then to my brother and sister-in-law's tomorrow...
