Nearly Time For Christmas!

Hello there! How are you today?

My lovely mum took me out for dinner this evening which was really nice...until a group of 16 young girls arrived to celebrate a birthday. I watched as they made lots of noise, laughed at other diners and generally made a nuisance of themselves...then I uttered the words that made me realise that I'm no longer a spring chicken...."I hope we weren't like that when we were their age!" My goodness! When did I stop associating myself with the younger generation?!? I then ranted for about ten minutes about good manners! My poor least she knows she brought me up properly!

Anyway, I've got a little card for you this evening that is perfect for three different challenges:

This is a Christmas card for a man....something that I've never done before!

Winter Wonderland - A male Christmas card
Charisma Cardz - Christmas

I always struggle with male birthday cards, so when I saw the Winter Wonderland theme I think I actually shuddered! However, when I started thinking about what might make a good masculine Christmas card I realised that it would fit in quite nicely with the tic toc theme over at CCT. I've kept the card layout simple and used strong contrasting colours.

Take a peek at the three blogs above to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

Right, thats it from me tonight...I'm off to watch a bit of Strictly Come Dancing! Thanks for popping by today and for all your lovely comments.
