Santa is coming to town...

Evening All,

Well I'm kind of there ready for holiday - I think!  We're only going to Center Parcs for a mid-week break with the family but I've had sooooo much to do before hand it's ridiculous, lol!  I've made Hubby's birthday card, got some Christmas stamps together and decided what papers I'm matching them with, then stamped a load of images up to take away with me to colour. I wrote the family's Christmas cards out ready to give them tomorrow at Center Parcs. We like to take Christmas lights with us so I thought it would be nice to have thier Christmas Cards up too. Hubby's birthday is on Wednesday so he'll have his birthday cards up too - a home from home, lol!  But I think I'm finally ready to go!  So before I do I thought I'd share this Christmas Card I've made for my nephew Archie...

Out of all the cards I've made for the family Hubby likes this one the best, hope Archie likes it too!

Ok, I'm off now to attempt to schedule a post for tomorrow (or rather later on today!) to show you Hubby's birthday card I made earlier on today.  If it doesn't work I'll post it tomorrow night from the villa instead!
