Time to Celebrate .......

Happy Thursday!

Well, the tree in the lounge is finally up ...... it only took me about 5 hours last night (and 3 glasses of red)!!!!! And nothing got broken ...... even the lights worked!

It was nearly 2am by the time I'd finished ...... it looked ok then and surprisingly enough it didn't look bad this morning.

All the new baubles are on ..... the little angel looks gorgeous ......

There was a new bauble for Alex too .....

And of course all the old favourites went on there ......

Even Santa's boots .....

Things are beginning to look quite festive now ...... apart from the pile of empty boxes in the hallway that need to go back up in the loft!  Another job for hubby when he gets home!

It's celebrations all the way this week over at Less is More ...... it's their 200th Challenge!  Whoo hoo!! Congratulations ladies ....... you all do a cracking job of coming up with fun themes and amazing inspiration pieces, week after week ...... here's to the next 200!!

No prizes for guessing the theme this week ........ that's right, it's

I'm sticking with the Christmas theme for my entry ...... a great excuse for celebrating

This little chap seems to be doing just that!

A CAS design, which is great for doing batches of cards ....... with the added touch of some festive sparkle

I added the sentiment ..... both stamps by the way are from Penny Black ......... and finished off with a little decoration to the inside (another fab stamp from Penny Black).


Well that's me done in the craft room for today .......... back to the Christmas decorations I think.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your Thursday.

Cheerio until next time
