Christmas Cheer

Hi All
At last I have managed to make a card, mind you,
my OH was putting me more shelves up, so had to work round him.
and do you know what he said, I should STOP BUYING CRAFTY things
as there was no room to put anything else, and he was serious!
I have  to use an old camera now as I used to use a brill camera
that took videos and snaps underwater, (OH used this snorkeling )
but, it seems because I kept opening & shutting  it to take the SD card out,
it now lets water in so he was not pleased, all holiday photos were lost.
Anyway I digress it seems odd to make a Christmas card, when it is 29` outside,
Hope you like my offering and I would appreciate and comments left you yourselves.

I will enter this card into the following challenges

Craftyness Challenge   Christmas card with Non traditional colours

Hello, Janet. Thanks for messages. I am being good and still curtailing my pc visits but was dying to come visit you. Sooo sorry about your holiday pics but hopefully you have great memories from the lovely Cuba xx If we are not supposed to open and shut wee doors on cameras why are they there? If we are not supposed to put memory cards in and out why do we have memory cards? (Is this the third thing? hope that is all out of the way now) Shock! I had to go for a lie down there and fan myself at the thought of STOPPING BUYING CRAFTY GOODIES oh the horror; I may never recover!!
As for shelves; you should tell OH that handsome young joiner up the road is always asking if you "need anything done" around the house !! OH will put up extra for you like a shot! (sorry don't wish to offend anyone xx)
Now that is out of the way, your card is great! Lovely Christmas image beautifully coloured as always by your fair hand but the colour scheme is genius; I love it. I am in a bit of an easel phase just now but your lovely scallopped shape is cool. Vee xx
