However, there is ALWAYS at least one person you omit from your list and (isn't it always the way?) their timely reminder comes to you - the day AFTER the last posting day for delivery in time for Christmas. The dilemma is .... do you tough it out? Do you pretend you mailed one (secure in the knowledge it will never arrive) or do you 'fess up and send a New Year card? Well here's my option ...
- White C6, 300 gsm scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- White card offcuts
- Red and black card offcuts
- Plain and scalloped dies
- Little Yellow Bicycle "banner" image stamped on to White card using Adirondack red pepper ink and cut out
- Verses Rubber Stamps wood mounted "Happy New Year" image stamped centrally in the banner shape using Versafine onyx black ink
- Penny Black wreath image stamped on to the plain circular white card panel using Versafine vintage sepia
- Stardust stickles used to highlight the stars and ribbon on the wreath
My husband is a superstar, I don't tell him anywhere near often enough so, if you are reading this honey - you're a star! Why particularly? Well, in addition to doing the last fresh veg/fruit/meat and dairy Christmas shop he also decided to make our Christmas cake today. CHRISTMAS CAKE I h ear you cry - "far too late" ...... let me explain, we don't eat fruit cake much so our Christmas cake is actually a Bailey's chocolate cake (very similar to a sachertorte) with a chocolate ganache decoration .... an idea passed to me by my crafting buddy Katie. Well, just LOOK at how well it turned out - thanks hubby and thanks Katie too

|All ganached and nowhere to go!!!|
So, I'll leave you all to your Christmas, however you plan to spend it and since we live in a technological age here is my technology based greeting! Have a good one!
