The three grandies came over yesterday early evening and stayed overnight. They are still here, so we've had lunch and watched a DVD and now just waiting for Mum and Dad to come and collect them. Our eldest daughter is on the countdown to her pregnancy. She is due Monday, I'm sure she is sick of it all and would love to deliver on time.
Onto craftier things, lol, and the start of challenge #3 at Completely Christmas. If you haven't joined us yet we would love to see you and wouldn't it be nice to get a head start with all those Christmas cards. Some of our friends have taken to writing a newsletter for events during the year instead of a card. I am happy to know how they have gone throughout the year but am disappointed that most of them don't bother with a card anymore. I think in this age of electronic greetings etc, I still prefer to celebrate Christmas with real cards. It is part of Christmas, to open up the letterbox and find cards from friends and family.
Anyway.... that's how I feel so I still enjoy making my Christmas Cards.
This week we are being sponsored by Bugaboo and I chose this wonderful image of DeDe to feature on my card.
