I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. We had a lovely time Christmas Eve meeting up with friends, great carol concert and then a little shopping. I got some trousers in Laura Ashley's sale and a pair of long black boots in Jones's footwear sale. I had some lovely pressies including some Go Kreate frilly square dies I have been trying to get for ages.

Another Christmas card to share with you today. I do love this style of card and reindeer have been really popular this Christmas. I used Dovecraft krafty Christmas paper with a Curiosity Corner doily, Craftwork Cards tag and sentiment and a Tim Holtz diecut reindeer.  I used DI vintage photo, some red ribbon and pearls and a white gel pen on the deer.

Well I got back in the craftroom for a short while yesterday mainly to schedule some posts and do a little colouring. We are out with friends for lunch today and tomorrow we are venturing to the shops for a while so it will  be Tuesday before I really have a lot of time for crafting unless something else crops up of course. I want to share this picture with you. My good friend Lynsey bought me this personalised ceramic sign for Christmas and I am absolutely thrilled with it.
