We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Don't panic I haven't lost the plot and think it's Christmas already! It's just what the sentiment on this card says. I was at a crop on Saturday and more or less made three cards. I didn't have and Candi or sentiments with me so I added them on Saturday night. I did manage to catch up with my favourite blogs and DT commenting after my usual Sunday things like cooking, washing and ironing! But I decided to schedule this for Monday morning instead of posting it on Sunday evening late.

I also managed to make some more strawberry jam as that's the competition at my WRI on Wednesday and  any later than today would have been a bit late. I'll need to make some cheese scones but I'll wait till Wednesday so they're nice and fresh. I also made shortbread with my lovely new Kenwood Chef. It was delivered on Monday and it's been sitting on my kitchen floor unopened. Good thing I've got quite a big kitchen lol!

But enough waffle, here's my card. I'm using up some of these cute squares from LOTV that I've had for a couple of years. They're really great for quick cards and you can add your own glitter to jazz them up and make them your own.

I used :-
Image :- Cute Square from LOTV.
Sentiment and Candi :- Craftwork Cards.
Embossing folder :- Cuttlebug.
Glamour Dust, Promarker and ribbon.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up after work tonight. At least I'm only out once this week so I can keep up with all my favourite blogs and DT work. Might even manage some crafting!
