O' Christmas Tree

Evening,
How are you all doing? Hope you've all had a lovely Christmas. We had a nice relaxing and quiet time which was lovely.
I've been having a play today with some clarity stamp letters that I got for Christmas from my friends Sheila and Tom... I love them thank you. So useful. 

I wanted to do a card for the Clarity Stamp challenge which runs out today. My favourite carol is O'Christmas Tree but I didn't have any Christmas stamps so I made my own stencil from a tree die and used the stamp shown below to add some texture.  This is my last Christmas card of 2016. A little head start for next year.
Hope you like it.

Challenge:

I'm feeling so much better with my Asthma today so I've made some banana loaf buns and a quiche for tea. The buns didnt rise much but taste okay. Must go as tea is nearly ready.
Have a nice night whatever you're up to.

Merry Christmas

Hello all,
Long time no see.... apologies I've been poorly with my asthma and a chest infection for the last 3 weeks.So I've been lying low trying to get better. I started with it at the end of my holiday in Scotland. Oh well I had a fun time staying with my Mum and Bob. 

Anyway I'm here to wish you all:

"a Very Merry Christmas."
Have a super time no matter what you're doing.

We've not opened our pressies as we are waiting to do it when Shannen arrives. She's working bless her. She was supposed to be here for 4pm but it's so busy it's going to be 5pm now. No rush. We are having a nice relaxing day.

Here's a card I sent to our dear friends Sheila and Tom made with an Indigo blu Christmas tree stamp, heat embossed with silver.

Challenges:

Thank you for all your kindness and support this year. You've all been amazing. I'm slowly getting back to commenting. Bear with me please.
Take care.
