Sorry I've not been an active blogger just lately.  My crafty mojo has done a bunk.  I can't even blame it on being really busy for Christmas as I think I have got most of it under control.  I am off work for a few days now but back in on Christmas Eve and its hubby's birthday today so I am going to do a bit of baking, he loves carrot cake so I'll do one of those and maybe some mince pies.

Anyway this is just a quick reminder to let you know that you still have plenty of time to join in with my Nutcrafters challenge - Lots of Layers and Sparkle/Bling so hope to see some of you joining in.

Red and Green Should Never Be Seen

Except at Christmas hey!!   Another quick post from me today.  I'm off over the Pennines to pick my baby up.  Yayy Emily is coming home from Uni for Christmas.  The weather man is warning of snow on the Woodhead and Snake Pass but I'll be fine, just take my time.  It'll look pretty anyway.  My mum is coming with me and we're calling to see my auntie on the way.  I'll have to drag mum away, once those two get chatting you can't shut 'em up.

I am entering this card into:
Less is More challenge - Red and Green 8/12
