Christmas is the keeping-place for memories of our childhood innocence.
I am such a dumbspud! It was my sis (Christine) & hubby’s 25th wedding anniversary YESTERDAY … and their card (made last week) is still sitting on my desk … cos I mixed her date up with my other sis … and decided there was no rush yesterday to get that to her … cos it was TODAY!!!!! DUH!!!! 🙄 Where is my brain! Christine’s is the 21st Dec … Louise’s is the 22nd Sept. How could I get that so wrong??? So … big apologies, Chrissie! I am so cranky with myself. 😦 I will make sure Ree drops your card into your house today! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY FOR YESTERDAY! Congrats on a wonderful milestone! 😀 😀 😀 Oh … and for those who are interested … I will show you this card … once our “25 Days of Christmas” is all over! I like it!!! 😀
So … today’s card is one based on an old Clean & Simple sketch layout #76. And … this was another sketch that we played at Leonie’s “Faux Incentive” trip at “Pepps Resort“. I think this might be the last project I have to share from the fun friendship weekend. I can’t wait until our next one! 😀 Here is today’s card …
You can see the scrummy “Christmas Cocoa” DSP again on this one. Just a touch … but this DSP is so “rustic” and gorgeous! I am so glad I have plenty left to use again next Christmas! 😀 I used the “Soft Holly” wheel stamp in place of the ribbon on the sketch. And … added some gorgeous blingy sparkle! (Dazzling Diamonds!) 😀 Such an easy layout … particularly if you have some square punches! No measuring needed!
Our wonderful son Shane paid for us all to go out for dinner last night! How special! It is so nice that he is finally earning a regular income … and has such a generous spirit! 😀 Dinner out … one of my fav things to do! So … on the agenda today??? Better get that card to Christine … and … I’m not really sure apart from that! 😀 I do have stamping withdrawals. 😀 Perhaps I can slip in a birthday card today? I still have cassatas to make … perhaps I will do that today! 😀 How lovely … at this busy time of the year to be so organised that I can have a bit of a relax before the “onslaught!”
Have a nice day, everyone! Hugs xxaxx
