On the 8th day of December ......

'tis the season to be jolly ..... falalalalalalalala!

Happy Tuesday,

A little late I know, but as they say .... better late than never!!

How's your week going ..... deep in the preparations for Christmas?
We're not doing too badly here, we got most of the Christmas present shopping done over the weekend .... despite the weather! Cards are nearly all done and written, I've just one more lot that needs posting (thank goodness! ..... I tell you, it's one layer all the way next year! Either that or everyone gets a facebook message!!)
The tree is getting there .....  I still say it needs more baubles on .....  hopefully that will be sorted sometime this week ...... oh, and the Christmas menu has been finalised!!
Hubby took a couple of days off work so we had a nice long weekend ...... lazy starts, lunches out and a leisurely stroll around the shops.  I even managed to find a dress for the Poker Stars Christmas do ..... finally!!! Just as well .... the party's on Saturday!

Anyhow, enough of all that ....... I'm playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge again this week.
The theme is ......

Candy Canes

And it just so happens that I made a card over the weekend that fits in quite nicely ......

It's that Crazy Bird again ...... and look what he's holding .... a candy cane!  Perfect!

Those favourite Clarity trees of mine are back out on my workdesk .... simply stamped along the edge of a paper mask to give that nice snowy landscape

Distress inks to colour the sky ...... spritzed with a little water then snowflakes added over the top

A touch of fine glitter here and there ...... and of course a festive sentiment

And a little something on the inside too ....

Well that's it from me today ....... I'm off to tidy the old craft room.  There's a small group of ladies coming round tomorrow and I need to get things ready.  Last minute Christmas cards and tags ..... CAS design with a bit of basic masking ... should be fun.

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

Cheerio until next time
