Christmas is coming!!

While watching my guilty pleasure ( the Grand Prix) this afternoon I have been able to do some crafting. Yaaaaay!!

And as I promised there is no sign of my Baroque Motifs on my card today!!

I have made it for the Clean and Simple challenge where they have this sketch,

and I'll also be entering it in the CAS-ual Fridays challenge  where they want a tag or something with a tag on it.

In case you haven't noticed yet, Christmas is coming fast and so that was my inspiration for my card.

This is it

I first stamped the Christmas sentiments in red across the bottom of a white card, and put some more white card through the BS on a dotty daisy texture plate (looks like snowflakes ) and sponged the edges in red. This was placed on 3D pads to add dimension. A red and White tag were then cut in the BS and the white matted on top. On this I stamped the pick up with its load of presents and tree (using the Stamp-a-ma-jig) which were coloured with SU Write markers and Pro markers. The finishing touch was the ribbon bow to attach the tag.
I've just seen the cola advert ( the famous one in the red cans) on TV which definitely means that the " holidays are coming!!", so very soon the decorations will need bringing down from the loft and the house being transformed into Santa's grotto.

I've had a terrible morning sitting in a cold Kwik Fit garage..........I drove to my mum's yesterday and noticed that one of my front tyres pressure was very low, and when I came to drive home, it was completely flat (only at the bottom though!!??). There was no way anything could be done till today, so I was up early waiting for the RAC to come and do a temporary repair so I could drive to Worcester ( 15 miles away) for a new tyre. Thanks to all the car thieves these days, Vauxhall cars no longer have spare wheels under the car, or in the boot ( means more space for cargo, apparently?) so it left me high and dry. Thank goodness I was at mum's.

Anyway, it's all sorted now, just no more off road rallying for me!!.

Hopefully, I can do some crafting this week, so please call back again if you can.

Thanks to everyone who leaves me comments, I love to read each one to see what you think.
