Definitely not 'Baah Humbug!!'

I have quite a few Christmas cards that I haven't shown on my blog - this is one I made for a friend.
You may remember that a few weeks ago we went up to Keswick for a breadmaking workshop with Peter Sidwell.
We didn't want to get up too early and travel up from our caravan so we booked a B and B not far away.
Then it snowed (justifying the need to book a stay over!)As we left the B and B on Saturday morning the sheep wandered over to our car and I took a few quick snaps.
I decided that one of them had to be a Christmas card - I added some  Christmas hats and snow by using Printshop on my Mac.

I added some Artemio holly and a die cut sentiment. 
I have made quite a few cards using this photo!


We have a quiet Christmas planned, lunch at Son number two's house on Christmas Day and then our annual family get together on Boxing Day afternoon at Son number one's house (although this'll be a lively affair I'm sure!)

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas/Hanuka with lots of what makes you happy! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Hello Hello Dear Chris (and Tony too!)
Your festive sheep really make me smile.
Sending wishes your way for a very Merry Christmas celebration.
Mr M and I will be spending the day tomorrow with my sister.
I have missed visiting with you while I was unplugged for so long.

Merry Christmas, dear friend. I love your darling sheep. They made perfect and adorable Christmas cards. You are always so clever when it comes to mailable cards. I love these.


I'm just now home. This has been a disaster from start to finish, and I've still not had a chance to get to the basement to check the paper. I will soon, though, because right now, you are on your way to your son's home, then boxing day at your other son's. That should give me time to get something together.

"Baah Ram You"" Did you see that movie - one of my favorites!
Well it is all over now except for the shouting and soon it will be time to charge into 2017!
