Happy Christmas Everybody!

Leaving this post to (hopefully) schedule on time... just wanted to wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year.

Thank you for all your lovely comments and support during the year - as always, and more so than ever this year, it is much appreciated.

I couldn't show this card earlier because it is for my brother and his wife and I didn't want to spoil the surprise!  it is based on day 2 of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas and one I really loved doing., even more so in a large size! 

 made another little "wreath" of silver beads for one, used some of the festive greenery die for the other deer.
Used a piece of the music paper from the Lost and Found stack, clear embossed my own resist on it.
It is mounted on an 8x8 inch card base.

Happy Christmas everyone!  Hope you all spend time with family friends or other loved ones and have a peaceful, happy time.

Since writing this, I have made the Dutch Butter Biscuit recipe we found in one of Mum's recipe books and which my brother and I remember fondly - so have made some as I promised them, to take with me. By the time you see this, they will either be - in our tummies - or the bin!! Not done "proper" baking for a loooooong time! They look similar to how I remember... how far wrong can you go with butter, brown sugar and flour?!
