Yes it really is a Christmas card!

Hi all, I hope you are having a good weekend. Hubby was away all weekend on a camping trip with some friends (us girlies are going away in a month's time - but not camping!), so I had loads of things planned for us to do. However, Daisy and Martha were ill from Wednesday and then half an hour after hubby left on Friday, I got the bug. So, we stayed in most of the weekend and watched TV. I think we are now recovered, but it was great timing.

Onto my card. I was planning to make loads this weekend until I became ill, so this is the only one I did. ABC Christmas Challenge's theme is F for Freebie and a sketch and the sponsor, who is the wonderful Stamp Fairy, has given a free image that can be used. I have used it and have gone for a mainly white card, which really isn't me, but I thought I would give it a go. The embossing was done with my big bite on the eyelet setting and the sparkly ribbon was from my recent trip to the craft fair.
