Oh Christmas Tree!

Morning All!

Wow have we had some snow!!  It hasn't stopped since Tuesday and it's still falling!!  I haven't been able to get into work today or yesterday and as much as I feel it's a waste of my holiday days, it's actually been really nice and I've managed to get my Christmas Tree's and decorations all up  :o)  So my house is twinkling away in all the snow and it's not really been wasted holiday at all!

Anyway, all this snow has made me feel very festive and I've actually had some 'bonus' time to get another card made, wahoo!  (See I told you it wasn't wasted holiday!).  This one is for my Nephew Henry.  What do you think?...

I wanted to enter this card in last weeks Magnolia Challenge but I was too late  :o(  So I played around with a bit last night (as I was following a sketch before) and thought I'd see what the new challenge was today - and it's Anything Goes so I can still play, wahoo!!

Ok, as I have some 'bonus' time, think I'll make a start on Archie's Christmas card now, maybe see you all later ;o)

TTFN and stay safe in the snow!
