Christmas Baubles!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well and enjoying your day.
It's been a driech sort of day here, not a wink of the sun, and I've felt cold, a sort of damp coldness that seems to seep into the bones.

Nothing all that exciting happening here, all quiet for me although Alistair took himself off for a cycle around the Firth yesterday amounting to around 40 miles.....and he wonders why he's tired. I really don't know where he gets his energy from, but I wish I had some of it.

I have a Christmas card today;
Not a great light today for taking photos, so sorry about that.
Woodware stamps for this one and water colour colouring, with some silver gel pen.
I've kept it very simple as I would like to enter into ;

Thank so much for all the lovely comments on my last card, I do appreciate the time it takes everyone.
A short and sweet post today, thank goodness do I hear you say lol!!

The weekend is almost upon us once again, don't they come around too quickly, anyhow, I hope you have some lovely plans and enjoy it, take care and see you soon,
