It's Christmas.........

Good afternoon, well what did I say about the lovely weather returning yesterday! It has not stopped raining all day.

I have made a Christmas card today, can you believe we are making Christmas Cards in July it seems to get earlier every year. I have used this lovely stamp from Belles & Whistles called 'Rockin' Around'.

I cut the poinsettia with my Cricut and added pearls to form the centre but I am not sure I like it so may change it for a another flower later.
