Oh Christmas Tree

We put the Christmas tree up last night and it got me right into the whole thing, which was what I needed because I went into Arbroath yesterday. It was Manic. So busy that I had to park way out of town down by the water. And why did I think it was a good idea to leave going to the Post Office til Saturday afternoon. Doh! Still, I love the sense of cameraderie you get when things are so crazy in the shops, a rather tired looking random stranger in the supermarket was telling me if I thought this was bad, she'd been in Dundee all day. Hooray for internet shopping, no queues and you can do it in your pj's.

Got my wee brothers Birthday bits off in the post and a couple of prezzies and my to do list is getting shorter and my birthday is a week tomorrow, whoohoo! Very bad family planning to have me and my twin brothers birthdays in december, lol!

Then I thought I'd start writing my Christmas cards as putting the tree up had made me all smiley in a Christmas way, only to realise I don't have enough, so had another making spree til 2am. Heres one of them, inspired by the challenge on UKS
Its a scan as the light is so bad here with all the drizzly cloud, but that does mean the frost has melted today! So more cardmaking today and with any luck I can get them all off in the post tomorrow.

Have a great day whatever you're up to.

I saw this on UKS earlier today. I fancy using this as a template for one of my team members cards.
Very good take on it, as I expected from you.
