Bank Holiday Blues

What do you do when you've got the Bank Holiday Blues cause the weather is rubbish?  You craft of course!  I don't know any other way to spend a miserable Bank Holiday unless of course it was eating chocolate and drinking wine - yummy!  I decided to do another card for the challenge on Winter Wonderland which is to show a Christmas tree either dressed or being dressed.  I've just made a plain card really with a stamp I've had for years and years which came in a set of about 40 in a wooden box which I think I got on QVC and this is only the first time I have used it (shameful aren't I?).

I've added some gems to the ribbon slider but didn't realise there weren't enough holes for alternate colours so then I added the red thinking that would do it but it still was still an odd number of holes - what can you do? I know I should have counted them first - lesson learned!  The paper is from Memory Box "Mistletoe". 

Well I'm off to make the dinner and I think that calls for a glass of vino to help me along the way, well it is turned 5!  Thanks for looking, take care x
