Day 8 and I used an SU stamp set which had this Nutcracker design and there is also a matching die to cut out his moustache. A quick and simple tag which was just coloured in using Promarkers and Copics. I did add some clear Wink of Stella to the moustache but it doesn’t really show up in this photo.
Here he is on the star decoration which is filling up nicely.
One of the reasons I haven’t been blogging this week is that I have been spending time working on our Christmas jigsaw. We managed to get it completed this evening. Lesley you guessed the correct puzzle we were working on so if you could e-mail me with your address I will pop a prize in the post to you.
We have also spent time doing some Christmas shopping. On Wednesday I met up with my friend Jenny and we managed to get some of the gifts we wanted and had lots of laughter too. Yesterday we met up with our daughter and started the day off with a nice cooked breakfast in a cafe in town to set us up for the day of serious shopping. I was also able to fit in a nail appointment and so my nails are now a nice glittery yellow colour ready for the works Christmas meal on Sunday. Lots of presents bought, just a few more to get now.
Yesterday evening it was the model railway Christmas meal – a very pleasant evening, good company and very tasty food of which we ate far too much. We managed to work some of it off by walking a fair way to catch our bus home.
Today our youngest son and the gorgeous Harlee-Jay came round to visit us – he’s growing so quickly and has such a charming smile.
