4 Sleeps until Christmas!

>> Monday, 21 December 2009

HPIM1868I always love the last few days before Christmas – lots of rushing around getting last minute pressies, visiting friends and eating yummy food and all the seasonal films on the TV.  We’re still under a blanket of snow in Kent and it would be wonderful if it stayed put until Friday – I can’t remember ever having a proper covering of snow on Christmas Day.  I had planned to spend today tidying & cleaning the house but our Christmas tree lights blew last night so we’ll be on the hunt for another set and I don’t fancy our chances at this late date!

This will probably be my last card before Christmas and its for a friend who has a birthday on the 27th.  I’ve used the fab sketch on this weeks Sketchy Colors challenge and it was nice (and necessary) to make a DL size card – I’ve run out of square envelopes!!  The SN image is coloured with distress inks and the papers are Bo Bunny and Cosmo Cricket.

I’ve also got the most exciting news to tell you all but I can’t let the cat out of the bag until Christmas Eve – I really do think I might go pop before then!
