20th Day of Advent

Well I hope you are almost ready for Christmas. I have bought most of the pressies, done most of the food shopping, and not wrapped a thing, done the tree or made any food treats! There is still time. I always am exhausted by Christmas, but I just love the build up to it, and how everyone gets excited by it. All we need now is snow! But you can get that on my blog, so why worry!!!
Yesterday's winner is LINDA
Congratulations, and please email me your address, so I can send your blog candy.
Today I pinched an idea from Mr Holtz, again! I don't think he will mind. I didn't stamp anything but used a alcohol ink background in lettuce and gold, and a little bit of red round the edges. Then layered on some Papermania paper on the bottom, and then added some baubles and mistletoe from some gorgeous paper from Paperchase. I then put a large square from the square fragments on top and held it together with a hanger.
More blog candy and Christmassy "stuff" tomorrow....

It just gets better and better every day!

You're one step ahead of me Jennie as I still have my food shopping to do, no tree or decorations up and no wrapping done. Guess I'll be doing a nightshift on Christmas Eve.
