Deck the Halls


All the eggs have been eaten.  Easter holidays are over.  So it's time to think of Christmas?  No not really but I've joined in with Merry Mondays today and now have another Christmas card for my box!

The challenge is to use Christmas words and decorate the letters.  I've used a sentiment from Christmas Messages as my focal point and decorated the letters with my Real Red and Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers.  I used Chalk Talk Framelits to make the label and decorated with the Little Leaves Sizzlits and Basic Pearls.  The background was made using the Music Note Wheel.  

Funnily enough we were listening to Christmas music today!  I seem to still have a Christmas CD in my car and my son thought it would be funny to put it on with the window down as we drove through our village.  My daughter, her friend and my son's girlfriend were all in the car cringing as Slade's Merry Xmas Everbody blasted out.  
What a giggle!! 

Merry Christmas, I mean Easter to everyone!! xx
