Christmas Greetings!

Hello Everyone, how are you today....or rather this evening now, well I hope and not suffering snow and being really cold.  I saw a gritter out spreading  earlier on heading for the A9, so maybe there is something brewing on the higher ground.   Alistair was in the Cairngorms today and there was some snow, he just love it.

Thank you all so much for your visit and kind comments on my last card, most appreciated.

Well our news is still awash with the USA Election result, it would appear that there isn't anything else going on any in any other parts of the world.  Mind you, who would have believed it! Scary times ahead, but one was as bad as the other, so who knows what will happen now.

Anyway, enough of all that, here is my card for today.
I've used a fabulous background stamp from Imagination Crafts and it's all Christmas Sentiments. I Embossed it with Silver Wow Powders and matted it on to silver glitter card and blue card.
Snowflake paper is from Papermania and then stamped Sue Wilson's Poinsettias die and embossed them in the Silver powder on to acetate and added a couple of little flourishes.

I would like to enter my card into;

I've had a break from Milo as Damian is working from home this week and I'm having puppy withdrawal. I just hope he isn't getting into any more trouble as last week he made a huge hole in the bedroom carpet, how he managed that is astounding as it was done between me leaving him and Damian and Moreen arriving home from work, and that was about 45 minutes.  Damian was so angry at him he had to go out for a walk in order to calm down, he had also chewed the corner of the bedside cabinet.  The consequences for Milo is that he had a visit to the vet with a very upset tummy.
He is some boy, but I've said I'll stay with him until they come home after work, on the days I can. He has a ton of toys, but he seems to want human things, oh and I forgot, Moreen's Ugg boots.

I'll leave you with a photo of one of the quieter pets;
Little Toby the Horseshoe Tortoise, he's a wee sweetie and fits on to your hand, even my small one.

That's me for now, take care everyone and hopefully be back tomorrow to share another Friday Oldie,

It's beautiful, especially love the texture of these pretty flowers with the silver & blue theme. Wonderful calligraphy on the sweet verse as well. Poor Milo...sounds as though he is teething. Hope you folks don't get really bitter cold. What is a gritter? (love these wonderful expressions!) TFS & Hugs

HAHA, the love/hate relationship of a new puppy! I did not know you have a turtle, there's one to add to my list. I hear they live a really long time, that true? Beautiful card, love the blue tones for winter and the glitter is wonderfully festive!!

Hi Kate, Milo is a naughty boy! It just makes me realise how good Holly is, she has only ever eaten a fridge magnet!
The tortoise looks very cute.

A lovely Christmas card, the sentiment is great. Lovely shades of blue and silver.

Have a super weekend and I hope hubby stays warm in the Cairngorms.

Hugs Erika. x

Hi Kate
Gosh, you have been a busy gal.
Love the layout on this one, with the off centre "topper". It looks so effective.
Oh, dear. How do you Milo proof a house? Is there not a room he can be left in where there's damage limitation?
