Relaxing with a Cuppa - Cocoa Carol

Hi again,
New Year's day was a quiet one for me, just pottering around the house, phoned Mum for a chat in the morning and watched a DVD with hubby. He spent some time repairing our pianola rolls as some of them had tears in them or the boxes were starting to fall to bits. I think the pianola needs some work on the tracking device so it plays the right notes, We can usually hold our finger over the little holes and it gets back on track but that's fiddly to do. Maybe later in the year we will get someone out to look at it. We don't play it as often but usually at Christmas the kids like to play around on it and the grandchildren are getting older and will be able to pump the pedals (it's not automatic, LOL, so you get a good workout)
I spent some time colouring an image and making a DT card for next week. Still have to do the inside but that won't take long.
I also made this card tonight in between playing Words with Friends on my phone. In the end I had to send a message to say I had to finish the card or it wouldn't have got done!!!

So here it is........

Inside of card
Brown cardstock from stash for the basecard
