Red and green .... positively festive!

Happy Tuesday,

Well, dare I say it ..... fingers crossed it doesn't all go pear shaped from here ..... but this week, so far, is going according to plan!  Apart from the printer  breaking down on me this morning that is .... arghhh!!!  There's a problem with the ink so the printer's telling me ..... That'll teach me to use non hp ink cartridges.  Well .... it's just going to have to wait until I get back next week, unless hubby feels like taking a look at it over the weekend (that's not going to happen!!)

Anyway, I said I was trying to get everything done before I go away on Thursday ...... washing and ironing - check!  Case is packed - check!  Shopping all done and fridge is full - check!  Blog posts scheduled - check!  and it's only Tuesday.

I've even done my card for this weeks Merry Monday challenge........ yes it's time to get all festive!

This weeks theme is ..... RED and GREEN

What do you think .......?

I love these little sparkly Christmas lights ..... cut using the Penny Black die  'sparkle string' from red and silver glitter card, and gold mirri

You can see I've layered the light bulbs onto the gold mirri string.
I didn't have any green glitter card in my stash so I cut one string of lights from silver glitter card and then coloured it using a green Copic marker ...... does the job!

A festive sentiment finishes off another CAS Christmas card

And of course a little something on the inside ....

Oh well .... that's another job done - check!
Now I just need to tidy the old craft room (or I could just close the door!) get my craft tools ready for the retreat and sort out my craft bag for tomorrow ....... it's workshop day over at my friend Jill's.  I have cake too ...... the birthday celebrations continue!!!

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

Cheerio until next time
