 Hello there blog buddies - it's getting a bit nearer isn't it - and I will confirm that it's being cheerful (grrrrrr) that keeps me going - lol!!!!!  Hi there to my new follower Supernan Sue, thank you so much for joining me in my quest to be creative - yay!  By the way, there's a lot of us Sue's about!!
I thought you would be really fed-up with Christmas cards but apparently not!  Several of you are still enamoured with them - it must be me then.  Mine have been finished and posted - barring any I might have missed.
This is another one I made the other week and I love this little image - why do I say that ..... I wouldn't use it if I didn't would I???  I am such a numpty!   I'm not sure that he looks very chuffed though - hence the title "Why do I have to carry the blinkin' tree?"   I have used my very favouritest dies (at this moment in time)  on this one - just because I can. 
6 x 6" card blank
Kraft card
Papers from my stash
Image - My Little Tree from LOTV
Sentiment - LOTV
Copic Ciao pens
Spellbinders - Scallop and Circle Dies
Memory Box - Frosty Border and Snowflake Corner
Stickles - Stardust
Glamour Dust

Whilst you are here, I noticed a lovely piccy on Sarn's blog (Stamping for Pleasure). She has decorated her fireplace so beautifully and her Christmas tree is amazing. I told Graham and he said "Bet you wouldn't want anyone to see our little stockings"!!! Well I am always up for a challenge so I said "Why not"!
So I have posted a piccy of our Christmas fireplace - lol.  Oh bless, I have just noticed his little bald head in the mirror.

I hope you like my card - please leave me a comment if you have a little time.  Don't worry if you are too busy - believe me I do understand.  Thank you for visiting though, I do appreciate it.  My little band of followers is growing and I am chuffed to bits.  Take care during this next week and I will catch up with you soon.
Big hugs to you all.
