many thanks

Well that's another Christmas done and dusted. We had a lovely time. A small select band - me, hubby, my mum and my two sis-in-laws spent 3 days at the Marine Hotel, North Berwick. Christmas Eve to Boxing Day, the most relaxing Christmas ever!

Now we are on the countdown to steak pie and shortbread season. Yep, hogmanay is just around the corner. Time to dust down the pipes and shake the mothballs out of hubby's kilt, aye he has a fine pair o' legs!

For my card I used my new Banana Frog stamps, build-a-bloom. Think I might be using these a lot. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set and the twine is from the Ribbon Girl.

I am entering my card into 3 challenges....

ABC....Keep it Simple

Cupcake....Thank You

Papertake...Be Thankful
