One more sleep .........

Happy Christmas Eve ......

Well the last minute shopping's all done ..... we have enough food to feed the whole of Douglas, more alcohol than the brewery and I just had to buy one more present this afternoon even though there's no room left under the tree!!!
But, that's it now, we're home ..... the Christmas tunes are playing and it's time to make a start on the preparations for tomorrow. Stuffing and cranberry sauce are on the agenda for this afternoon ..... along with a glass of something a little festive I think.

Before I disappear into the kitchen I have one more project to share with you.  I was just checking through the pictures on my camera and realised that I hadn't blogged these.

If you've been following me for a while you'll know that each Christmas I get asked to create some very special cards for an annual festive event ....... The Christmas Quest.
One of the guys that works with hubby does this quest for his wife ...... he places clues all over the place, inside one of my cards, and she has to follow the clues and complete the quest ..... how much fun is that!
Every year this quest is amazing ...... this year it was based in NEW YORK!!!

Here are the cards I came up with ....... all Christmas in New York themed, but each one different

We had to have the Big Apple in there ......

with a little festive touch to it of course .........

The fabulous New York skyline .....

oooh ... there's Santa flying by!

The famous New York Taxi cabs ......

with a little added sparkle .....

A beautiful festive Christmas tree .......

Again with lots of sparkle and glitz ......

And of course ........ the Statue of Liberty

So ....... Christmas is almost here.  Santa's on his way ........ I think we're ready.
I'm looking forward to tomorrow, we've got a house full .... just how I like it.

Thank you so much for popping by ...... and thank you all for your lovely comments throughout the year.
I'd like to wish each and every one of you
a Very Merry Christmas 
Have a fabulous time with family and friends and I hope all your Christmas dreams come true.

Cheerio until next time
