Warmest Wishes

Here is a little card that I have been trying to make for days... but lots seemed to get in the way, fortunately I think I still have a couple of days before the challenge at CAS Christmas closes!

Trina set quite a challenge for this one, as rainbow colours are not usually associated with Christmas greetings,  but I think that this little chap (a stamp from Little Claire) seemed to lend himself to having a jolly scarf!
I added a little twinkle to his hat and the snow on the ground, and used Copics to colour in his scarf. The sentiment is from Memory Box.
Merry Little Christmas - Anything Goes
Some of you may know that we have been waiting to have a new kitchen for quite some time, experiencing delay after delay due to problems with Covid 19 restrictions and limitations. However it is now all completed so I thought you might like to have a gander at the end result. It is fairly similar in layout to the previous one, but with several innovations, the main one being making space for a big old American fridge... which I love!
To do this, the point where the internet cable entered the kitchen had to be re-sited, which led to variety of problems of one sort or another, but now all is well. We had a little cabinet constructed to house all the various hubs for internet, tv, security, heating etc which we were told should be in an open aspect and not in a cupboard because of signal etc, however, once in situ I couldn't cope with the look of all the wires etc, so my kitchen provider had a framed door made for me, which would normally have had glass in, but instead I fitted a piece of navy mesh into the glass space, to obscure the wires and hubs etc and yet didn't impede the signal.
Here are some pics.

In this pic you can see the little cupboard under the tv where all the wires are semi-concealed! After the kitchen had been rewired and re-plastered, I did a count of all the sockets (outlets) ... there are 23! Six of them are in that little cupboard... 2 above it and one behind the tv. SO I have plenty left for the cookers, the toaster, kettle, coffee maker, Instant Pot, food mixer etc etc!
We are due to have our second vaccine tomorrow, so that will be another milestone!
Stay safe everyone!
