Merry Christmas

I love simple sketches, as regular visitors to my blog will know, so this one from CPS appealed immediately.
Here I have used a Cuddly Buddly digi paper and Cuttlebug die-cut trees  which I overstamped with a Tim Holtz Paisly stamp in gold. I  added a Stampin' Up sentiment on the lower panel which I edged with a SU border punch. Clean & Simple!
I haven't been out of the house for a few days, but my husband, who is the grocery shopper in our partnership, ensures that we always have enough food in the house to withstand a lengthy siege! We haven't run out of anything as yet and today there seems to be a bit of a thaw so all hopefully will be well.

  1. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
