Christmas Sparkles

Before I go any further with this post I want to say sorry for the rotten photo.  I hate having to take photos in artificial light as I never seem to get them clean and sharp and there never seems to be enough daylight just now anyway.  Been in Livingston today with my daughter who was doing her Christmas shopping as she's on holiday.  She was very lucky as she got nearly everything she wanted - and didn't pay the full price for anything!!!  

It's got quite cold here tonight and the wind is blowing a hoolie.  Once I've done this I'm cooking tea, getting the wood burner going, tv on, knitting out and feet up!  Poor Mr C, he's working!  Hugs x

Love, love your Winter White card- it is very elegant. Thanks for joining us for the Squigglefly challenge this week.

PS I have the same problem taking photos of my cards. I have been stamping at night and taking photos in the morning so I can catch better light.

Hi Anne, so sorry I haven't managed a visit for a while sweetie.
I've been browsing all your latest creations and I love the look of them. You've managed a LIM style, of which I'm very jealous as I can't do this at all!
lol Chrissie xx
P.S. Love the ribbon on this card, it's perfect with your beautiful embossed trees.
