a cold and frosty morning...

Good morning everyone its getting so close to Christmas isn't it, I'm going to have to start thinking about the Christmas present list aren't I, there's no putting it off any longer, last night was so cold, clear and frosty it gave me a push...I love giving Christmas presents don't you, I think its a woman thing we love the look on peoples faces when they open them...I love the late night shopping by myself and going for speciality coffee and mince pies half way through and all the glitz and sparkle and carols....ooohhhh I'm getting that Christmas feeling now...my card for today I had so much fun making, I love these Ragged Carolers from Mo's Digital Pencil, they are amazing to colour too, did you know you can get all three Carolers and the lamp in a bargain set...I used two of the Carolers and the lamp on the front and the other little girl inside...

isn't this paper just perfect for the images, I bought it at the Kings Hall craft show and it by Teresa Collins Design and is called Noel Sheet music...I teamed it up with some fantastic Kaisercraft Acetate shapes called 13th Hour, pleated ribbon (lush isn't it) and a collection of poinsettia, I love these they are so fab...I'm entering this for the Winter Wonderland Vintage Christmas challenge, Secret Crafter Saturday Wrap up warm challenge and DYSU Trees challenge too...I'm off out today and you never know I might start the shopping today if I can think what to buy...whatever your doing have a wonderful day
