A Little More Christmas. . . . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope all is good with you? Halfway through September already. . . . . .its frightening.

I must start by apologising for being AWOL for a few days. There was an emergency at one of the other stores in our region and my boss had to go in and help out, along with other staff. Consequently, I was holding the fort at our store and obviously had to do extra days.
Its quite a physical job so I have just been crashing out when I've got home and have ended up nodding off and dribbling in the chair most evenings lol!

Sorry that I've missed commenting too (including Sue with a die giveaway and John so no one has escaped) but although I have another mega busy week ahead, I shall be popping by your blogs at some point today.

A warm welcome to Zoe who has pressed the follow button. Thank you so much and hope you can visit often.

Now, today's card is one of my favourites that I made for John's last C & C shows. This one was displayed on the counter rather than in the sample pile.

White card
CE Brunswick Green card
John Lockwood's 12 Days of Christmas 8x8 paper pad
Sue Wilson Snowflake Mini Striplet
CE silver ribbon
CE sentiment stamp
Silver embossing powder
CE Dazzlers (large one coloured with a green marker)
CE pearls (coloured with a silver Krylon pen)

I think that there is only one more to come from the samples now so I hope I haven't done your heads in with festive overload.

Will be back on Thursday with MAWTT so once again I apologise for being missing and bid you adieu for now.

Hope this week is kind to you all.
