Santa Baby!

Hello Everyone, hasn't it turned really cold, in fact it's been quite wild here in Inverness, so much so that I battened down the hatches and kept indoors.  However, October is galloping on so I don't think we can expect much less.

I hope everyone is well, and for those who are not so good, sending out good wishes and hugs and hope you'll feel better soon.

Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post, you are all very kind and I do appreciate the time you take to come and visit, life is so busy for everyone, and making time isn't always easy, but I'm glad you do.

Not much news from me tonight, leading a quiet life, just concentrating on settling back into work, and amazed at how tired I am after only doing half a day.  This week it is two 1/2 days, yesterday, and tomorrow.  I will gradually work up to full-time but very, very slowly.  I'm so out of the loop with clients, and staff, mind you, half the staff are off sick and we are only four and a half at the best of times.

So to my card;
As you can see this is for a very special man, and I found these images whilst looking through an old Making Cards Magazine, in fact it was the Christmas edition from last year, and something about them just tickled me.  If I close my eyes could imagine that it's Alistair and me, wow, that would be dredging up some imagination. Oh well, a girl can dream can't she! I've seen the day.

The papers are also from the mag, and also the border.
I've added, Core'dination Black Card
Ribbons and Charm from The Ribbon Girl
MB Hearts and Snowflake Corner
SB Snowflake die which I've glittered with Diamond Sparkles
Gems from my box
Computer generated sentiments
Star dust

Well that's all from me for tonight, enjoy the rest of your evening and see you soon

I would like to enter my card into;

LOL great card, love your sense of humour. The concept is great and looks very dramatic with the black and white colour combo.
As for work......I'm always tired when I get home too....couldn't do full time! (Got too many other things to do in a day!)

Take care
