A very Merry Christmas to one and all.

I hope everyone is prepared for Christmas and has time to relax. I have one more journey to make tonight to deliver gifts, then home feet up and some mulled wine and watch The Bishop's Wife. One of my favourites at this time of year.
This is an extra card I made for the sake of it.

I used one of Karen's Doodles images, Promarkers, Nesties, Chalks and Stickles. The papers I have had for so long I can't remember the name.

Not a card

No card today. I have been making these little boxes as small gifts for the family. They are so easy to make. I found a tutorial here
I used Craft Creations card and Nesties with little embellishments. These are good for using up small scraps of paper and card.

Today has been a stormy wet day. It was quite scary walking home from work, I felt I was going to take off a few times.
I had a lovely surprise awaiting me on the I Love Promarkers blog. I managed to make the top 3, thank you  for choosing me. I can now display this badge on  my blog. 

Top 3 Badge

Now my card, which you may have guessed is for Less is More.
I have missed a couple of weeks due to a very heavy work load and I think I was having withdrawal symptoms.
I used Nesties and a Lavinia stamp, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Stickles and a few pearls. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Another of Ruth's images, nice and simple. I decoupaged the ornaments and added a little Stickles to the branch. The paper is Craft Creations and the colouring is Promarkers. The area around the image is chalked in a pale cream and a few doodled dots around the image.
