Christmas Greetings

Hello Everyone,

Goodness I feel exhausted.  Just dropped my Son back to his house for University this weekend.  I had to close my eyes for most of it, lol.. Goodness knows how these landlords get away with the state of these houses they let to Students, it's shocking.  Saying that his room isn't too bad, just close your eyes for the rest of it.  He's got strict instructions not to use any of the kitchen surfaces and I left with armed with a chopping board and bacterial spray, lol.

Here's my DT card for Live and Love Crafts and Sandy has set a theme of "Bon Voyage".  I hear you saying this doesn't look much like a Bon Voyage card.  Well........ my thinking is Bon Voyage is Farewell, right? So as I'm just back from my holiday I'm saying Farewell to the Summer and Hello Winter, lol.

I have used Pion Design's Norweign Christmas collection to make this book and I really wanted to see the church scene from the paper so was careful in the positioning of embellishments.  The gorgeous image is also from the same collection called christmas greetings.

The Base sheet is actually from Pion Deisgn's Vintage Wedding Collection, cut using the Dutch Doobadoo Book Stencil.

Below is one of the new sets of Sue Wilson Poinsetta Stamps just in at Noor Design UK and cut with the matching Poinsetta Die Set, links below.  I have also added frosted pomegranates and holly leaves with some diamond stickles.

I added some lace, double row string pearls to the centre and finished with some cinamon sticks and vax cord.
