Good weekend? I HOPE that the decidedly "IFFY" weather didn't spoil your plans. We had originally planned a BBQ for Friday night but had to move indoors, actually, hubby did such a stellar job of the Thai menu he changed to that I'm kind of delighted that the weather turned a little inclement!
Anyhoo, I've a Christmas tag to share with you first of all today, I often forget the tags and have to resort to shop bought if I don't remember in time so .. in addition to trying to make cards all year round I'm trying to make the odd tag too!

This was one of these projects that just grew organically, I started out with every intention of making a Christmas card!!! You know how these things happen ... I had to clear a snippet that just so happened to be about 5cm x 9.75cm - perfect panel size for the above card and I started to think ... hmm and the next thing I knew the above card was made and .... I really like it despite the fact it is sooooo not Christmas!!!
I'll be entering the above card for the following challenges:-
