Family @ Christmas

Good afternoon.
I've just eaten a very full turkey lunch that I started cooking with the help of my daughter at 7:30 this morning!
Usually we are awakened to the patter of Grandson's feet sometime after 6 but it was well after 7 this morning, still the oven got put on while we opened our pressies and cleared away the plate that Santa ate on his way through to deliver our parcels.
Last night at 17:20 GMT we saw Santa cross the sky in his sleigh as we did last year after a couple of false alarms, airplanes which Ben wasn't fooled by! We then had tea and took my 4 year old Grandson for a ride around the town looking at the festive lights. We went past a  particularly well known private display 3 times!

I know this is Christmas Day but while the rest of them are repleat on the sofa watching cartoons, I am taking the opportunity to post a card I made a couple of days ago but with all the prep didn't post.


I made it with a couple of Challenges in mind.
Less is More - Family
TIME OUT - Christmas is love with all the trimmings
CAS on Sunday - Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Christmas/ New Year

I still had my snowman family stamp out when this weeks Less is More challenge came up so it was a no brainer to use it again. While looking for a bit of card to stamp on I found this off cut from another card and the idea of a snow globe came to mind! The family were coloured using Copics and the snow in the globe were dots of white Cosmic Shimmer PVA. The base was cut from a scrap of black, stamped and embossed in white. The whole was lifted up on pads over an embossed background on an A6 white base card.

Well that's about it for this Christmas post. The others seem to have finished watching Mr Bean's Christmas so I suppose I better organise some coffees!

MERRY CHRISTMAS
To all my readers and followers.
