Festive Frivolities

Hello friends

So how was it?
I do hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and Boxing Day.
Mine was lovely - so much delicious food -
this pretty much sums it up...!

This is my clan Christmas Day at my Mum and Dad's home.
We let my mum loose with a selfie stick - so funny.
She actually did very well, this photo is nearly straight.

There is a very important person missing - Elliott,
just a day or two before Christmas he came down with a horrible 
sickness bug :( Glad to report he is now on the mend and we are going
to do a Christmas Day all over  - yes another round of calories!

Now to my crafty offering - I still have Christmas cards to share with you so 
I had better get those in quick!
This one features Graceful Brackets - one of the Becca Feeken border
dies available from Create and Craft.
Shadowed with gold mirror card and the holly leaves and berries
is Jolly Holly - a new Christmas Die D-Lite for this year.
I took the photo one very frosty morning - looks very appropriate.

Today back in my cabin for a little bit to meet some deadlines
and then back home for leftovers - I do love that, the cold meat, pickles etc.

Take care friends and now it's countdown to New Year!
