Mistletoe for Colour Challenge17 at Chocolate Baroque

Good Afternoon One and All, I hope you are all fine and dandy and keeping calm in the run up to the Big Day.

We had snow overnight, but I don't think it will lie too long but oh what a murky day it's been, I'm just hoping that it doesn't freeze later as I have to go out for choral rehearsal and I'm not confident driving in those sorts of conditions. It's our last reheasrsal for the Carolthon which is this coming Saturday, so I feel I have to go, besides I do enjoy singing the Christmas songs and carols.

Thank to everyone who left comments on my last card, I do enjoy reading them and appreciate the time you all take to visit me.

Here is what I've made for the CB Colour Challenge;

The photo is a wee bit fuzzy so sorry about that;
I've inked up CB December's AYOS stamp and tried to interperate the colours by using WOW Red EP and Wink of Stella Gold, SN pens and paper from Papermainia, Centura Gold Card, Liquid pearls in Opal White.


Well I've managed to get all my cards written except one which I still have to make , but as it is for our neighbour that isn't a problem, it was so good to see them off into the postbox.
I'm going to have a real break from card making after this one and also a break from blogging over the next few weeks, I'm spending way too much time on the computer, so I will be back tomorrow to post my last card, I will be having a quick scroll through your blogs, but won't be commenting, hopfully you'll understand, in fact many of you might be having a break too.

So I will say cheerio for now and catch up tomorrow
I would like to enter my card into;

Super card Kate in great colours. We have had a simply dreadful day - very dark and dreary and then rain from about 2 pm. I went to Milton Keynes to finish my Christmas shopping and I was glad to come home. Mind you, the shops were certainly not busy, which was a bonus. It was also easy to slip into places for a cup of tea. Maybe everybody has finished early this year? Hope you and Alistair have a super Christmas and enjoy the break from blogging. Hugs Christine xx

Simply put....very beautiful. OMG, do keep warm. I wouldn't be able to handle that cold weather. Anything below 60 degrees farenheit is too cold for me. LOL. Have a wonderful day and thank you for letting me know the status of the pkg. I sent to you. Appreciate it.
