Welcome to the start of the weekend!

Morning all,

Had a good week? I've had a lovely week, what with an outing with a pal on Tuesday and a few days in Blackpool since then - turned out nice!

However, whilst we had the bad weather last week I could NOT stop myself making Christmas cards - had to be done, you look out, you see snow and think CHRISTMAS!!! Or was that just me? Anyway, here's another Christmas make towards my 2018 quota .....

My ELF card
And a closer view of my image

Yes, I'm the same - snow equals Christmas cards - but I think we have more white Easters here than Christmases. I love your bright, jolly card.
