Challenge #3 at Completely Christmas

Voting day today!!! I hate politics, all the campaigning and petty squabbles. The wasteful reams of pamphlets that come either dropped in the letter box or posted and then again when you go to the polls. You have to run the gauntlet of all the different parties before you can get to the polling booth. This year we have even had people knocking on the door supporting candidates and many phone calls - even pre-recorded ones. So was out early to vote so I don't have to worry about it for the rest of the day. Hubby did his earlier  and went to a different polling booth where they only had a couple of lights on in the hall. He had trouble seeing his ballot papers. He asked 3 different people if they could put some more lights on and they wouldn't do it. Now that is penny pinching and making it difficult for the voters. I hope they got many more complaints!
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.
