Happy Saturday!!

Morning all!

And Happy Saturday to you!  I hope your weeks have been good?  Did you put your deccies up yet?  I know it's only the 3rd December but mine go up on the 1st, I've even been known to put them up at the end of November, lol!  I just love seeing all the lights twinkling away, and I have a LOT of twinkling lights - 2 trees with 2 sets of lights on each plus other sets on top of my kitchen cupboards and on the side board.....not to mention the outdoor ones!  What can I say, I'm a Christmas Cracker, lol!  (I'll post some tree pictures up soon I promise!) 

Onto my card and this one I made using my Sketch Saturday teamie Karita's sketch.  I've made this for our friend's son who is 3 today, Happy Birthday Ashton  :o)  Here's my card...

A close up of LOTV's 'Little Lorry Bear' (how super cute!!)...

Hubby is away working this weekend and I hope to crack on with some cards whilst he's away.  I still have tonnes of Christmas Cards to make and also Hubby's birthday card.....he turns the BIG 4 - 0 on Thursday!! Gosh I'm feeling the pressure just thinking about his card, lol!!

Have a good Saturday all and I'll see you soon,

Wow 2 trees?? What fun! I have to admit I'm one that puts up my tree at the end of November...usually the day after Thanksgiving! Kinda a tradition ever since I was little. Loving your adorable card cazza! I have to find me that large scalloped border...always my fav part of your cards! :D

Love, love, love your card! What an adorable image, perfectly coloured as always and those papers are just fabulous!

As for the deccies ... the answer is NO! Since moving house last year our tree doesn't fit ... didn't have it up last year, probably wont have it up this year ... have seen one i like but dont know if i can justify spending £50 on a flippin' tree that only comes out once a year for about a fortnight! Bah humbug LOL!
