Bah Humbug Christmas Card

Just a quick one from me tonight. I am off on my jollies tomorrow morning. We are going up to the wilds of Scotland to hunt down 'Nessie'. No seriously we have rented a cute cottage on the banks of the River Oich in Fort Augustus which flows into Loch Ness.   I can't wait, I haven't had a break from work since The Royal Wedding weekend and I'm absolutely shattered.  We are hoping to do lots of walking.  I've told Chris I'm not climbing any mountains this time as the last 2 times we've been he's dragged us up Ben Nevis and a few others.

Anyway the lovely ladies at Humbug Hall have set a nice easy one today, to use beads so as soon as I got in from work I got cracking. 

I found these cute silver embroidery beads that I had left over from sewing on Emily's bridesmaid dress (I won't be doing that again, it took blooming ages but well worth it she looked gorgeous)  and also some red and clear beads from an old felt Christmas ornaments kit.

I embossed straight onto the base card with a label Nestie to use as a frame and stuck  the Forever Friends stickers in the middle and sentiment on the edge.

Right off to have my tea and then get the car packed so we can get an early start tomorrow morning.  I hope the weather stays like this, its been lovely and sunny today but I somehow doubt it.

See you next week!
