Cricut Christmas!!!

Yay.......a card!!!
The picture isn't the best as the light was fading by the time I could take it. The colour is a more grungy Antique Linen colour IRL.
The papers are Papermania and I am using all the ones I don't like!!! I found the white a bit stark with this green so have used the distress ink to tone it down and then used the matching Stickles for the snowflakes.
Letters are from the Base Camp cartridge and the snowflakes are from the Noel Solutions cartridge. The buttons have been tied with linen sewing thread.

Well hubby has finished painting the outside of the house and it looks lovely. We are the only house with co-ordinating garden!!! Everything from the house to the gate has a very dashing splash of Country Cream....including the lawn. He's a very sharing sort of fella...especially with a brushful of!!!

I will be back to the wallpapering this weekend. It won't be long now before it's finished thank goodness.

A bit weary tonight so I am off for a read and an early night.
Thanks for dropping by.
