Hostess Monday

Good Morning to you all, hope you had a nice weekend.  We had a quiet one as we have both been laid low with this virus.  I am now starting to have a mild panic about Christmas preparations.  I have done most of my Christmas present buying just a couple to get.  The decorator is coming today to decorate the lounge and the carpets are being fitted on Thursday and Friday but no date as to when the suite is coming!!!  I haven't been able to get any of my Christmas decorations out yet and I haven't planned my menus - eeeek!  Is anyone else starting to feel a slight bit of panic setting in?  I guess it well be alright on the day as they say - here's hoping!

Anyway today my card is one I made for Digital Delights Blog as it is my turn to Hostess:

Yes another shadow box card! I do love them they look really good in real life and so easy to make!  I have used Digital Delights Standing Santa and he has been coloured with Copics and Stardust Stickles.  The snowflakes paper is Nitwits.  Spellbinders Dies Labels Thirteen, EK Success Border Punch, Cheery Lynn Tags Two and Whimsy Snowflake Die.  The tree and deer are Marianne and have been covered with Frantage. Here is another view:

Thank you so much for looking today, I will be back later with my second post of the day!! Take Care xx

Great shadow box my friend, lovely image and colour combo too..

Hope you and yours are feeling better now...viruses are a pain..

I never panic about Christmas as we just have Salads and BBQ, roast a few chooks or pork in the webber so no cleaning or hot kitchen drink and be merry is our motto here in Ozzy...xxxx
