Merry Christmas.....

Morning everyone.  Hope you are all ready for Christmas.
I am so pleased I finished work yesterday, it's been an absolutely manic week, can't believe how many people want to move house this close to Christmas!

Anyway. I can concentrate on my wrapping, and last minute bits now. 

Just wanted to share my last Christmas card for this year.  This one is for my Hubby.
I have had this stamp for ages, and never used it!  I think this is going to be my New Years resolution....to use all the stamps I have bought and never used! I think there might be a fair few!!  How bad is that?




I have used.
Sugar Nellie stamp - Warm winter wishes coloured with pros.
Papers GCD Joyful peace.
Memory Box Frostyville Border.
MC Snow flake die
Nestie circles.
and 
Craftwork cards sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by today. 
 This will no doubt, be my last post before the big day, so I would like to wish you and your families a
Merry Christmas
Hope you get lots of nice craft goodies.
