Baubles in Blue

Hi everyone, a lovely day here in Adelaide. I went off to craft today and my new lady on my table didn't turn up, maybe she wasn't well. I still had two others to teach and I am hoping she doesn't turn up next week wanting to make today's card, because we are moving on to something new. I spent a fairly quiet afternoon at home and made a pasta slice for tea, I used Fettucine as the base and then a meat sauce and on top of that Bechamelle sauce, topped with grated cheese. It is always a big favourite with our family. I made two dishes so I rang up our middle son and offered one to him. He came on his way home from work and managed to get the dish to fit inside the space under his motorbike seat (it was pretty snug) and he only lives 5 minutes away from us so it wasn't going to be in there very long! There is still plenty left for hubby to snack on and any of the kids who pop in when you least expect them. They all have keys so it is not unusual to be sitting here and here a key turn in the front door!
Onto my card for today, my friend Shirley gave myself and Fran the choice of a piece of textured card and a designer paper but we had to come up with something using them. Well this is mine, I still have more left so will probably do another card later on. I chose the green card and this lovely pale blue DP with green swirly lines on it. The blue card is from stash (could be SU from a mixed pack) The little ornaments were stamped in Brilliant Blue ink (SU) onto white card and then cut out. I used some border stickers to make the hanging cords and then adhered the ornaments onto the paper. The stamps were a free set which came with a magazine. The Merry Christmas came from SU Holidays and Wishes also stamped in Brilliant Blue.
Hope you like how I used your gifts, Shirley, will try to remember to bring to class next Tuesday.
I would like to enter this into Make It Monday Challenge #61, it's only a simple card but the challenge is always anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by and for all the fab comments you leave too,
Enjoy the rest of your day,
