Merry Christmas

Firstly, I would like to wish all my followers and everyone in blog land a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, as I think this may be my last post before Christmas or else it is not going to happen in this house!! I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and encouragement that you all give me and for helping me with my confidence. Thank you all so much!!
Secondly, conservatory update, it's not going to be this Christmas, that's all I am going to say as I am so disappointed!! But to be fair the weather has been against us since we started.
Now down to this card, it's Hubby's Christmas card!! As he is a fanatical fisherman, how could I resist this stamp!!

Happy Christmas Charlotte!!

Oh my gosh, I didn't realise how long it has been since I blogged, I'm really sorry folks!!! I just don't seem to have anytime to do anything these days. I came home early today as I have the lovely cold virus that is going about and feel absolute rubbish, a nice way to spend your birthday!! Yes, tomorrow is the big day when I enter my 50th year, what a thought!!! Can I go backwards now? Please . . . . . At least I have the day off and will be able to do a bit of catching up with writing my Christmas Cards and wrapping, that's if I don't fall over the conservatory in the process!!! Yes it has been delivered but is now spread about the house!!! It is everywhere. I have told hubby that I'm not eating my Christmas lunch off of window frames!! How many of you would put up with this?!!
Anyway enough of my complaining, I have made this card for Charlotte for Christmas and it fits in with five challenges.
Allsorts challenge which is purple
A Spoonful of Sugar which is monochrome
Simon Says Challenge which is a charm
Cute Card Thursday which is Swirly Girly
