Christmas Is Coming

Good morning all, hope you are well. A special hello to my new followers, so pleased you have decided to join me, it still feels good to see new faces appear on the list.
 
Well since I posted last I, or should I say we, have celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary.
We went out for a meal just Hubby, me and the girls. I'm not one for parties as I hate being the centre of attention so we had a quiet evening just hashing over memories of things that have happened in what seems like no time at all, and of loved ones no longer with us to celebrate.
Where does the time go to.
It was lovely and we did laugh plenty.
 
Onto my card. I saw the theme at Fashionista was Christmas and I love making Christmas cards, won't be long now eh!!
Doubled up with this one too as the theme with the Christmas Card Club was Anything Goes, so two for the price of one.
 
I've had this stamp soooo long and have never inked her up, shame on me, so here is her debut, so to speak and I enjoyed making the flowers with my new joy crafts dies, be using them a lot more me thinks.
