B&W Christmas


Hi folks! I sat down in the craft room yesterday afternoon and made a couple of cards for challenges today.  I haven't quite got myself back into any kind of routine since coming back from Spain but I'm getting there. At least my back is almost OK again, I'm just being careful - after a fashion!

I met one of my friends for coffee yesterday.  She was in Lanzarote while I was away so we'd lots to talk about and compare tans.

This card was made for the Christmas Card Club and the theme of Black and White was set by The Dutchess (aka Margaret).  I love doing black and white cards so I was able to ease in fairly gently after my break although I think Mr Mojo is still on his hols or perhaps he's still in the case!

Hope you have a lovely day.
Hugs
