Totally Gorjuss - 111- For Someone Special.

Good morning everyone and it's time for the last challenge over at Totally Gorjuss before whe have a break over Christmas. This week our theme is "For someone special" so I'm sure at this time of year we all have to make a card for someone special. Of course it doesn't have to be a Christmas card it could be a birthday card or a congratulations card for a partner or child or whoever.

I've made a Christmas card for my husband, hope you like it, he does!

I used :-
Images :- Hero Arts & Sizzix stamps and dies.
DP :- First Edition.
Sentiment :- LOTV.
Snowflake & snowflake border :- Martha Stewart punches.
Card Candi :- Craftwork Cards.

When I get round to posting the rest of my family cards you might notice that there's a bit of a colour theme this year. I feel quite relaxed about Christmas this year card-wise. I posted most of them on Monday. Handed out the rest at the Guild meal on Monday, the WRI meal on Wednesday and at my work. I've still got one or two to hand out and 3 to post.

Work has been really busy this past wee while. Some days it's a bit like me or them with the parcels. Now it might just be me but why do people post great big cards, especially overseas, or huge parcels and then complain about the cost?!!! It does make me a bit narky, after all it's their choice not my fault! And don't get me started about people who come in at the last minute and then expect me to be impressed by how clever they are. And lastly what makes people think I want to stick on their stamps. ok rant over, soon no-one will want the post office and we'll get peace for a while.

Not sure if this card fits any challenges as I haven't had time to do much blogging this week.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up later after work......I hope.
