"Merry Christmas Big Boy"
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. I do hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and didn't indulge too much???
By the time you read this posting I'll be spending some R&R and time with my family at our beach house for New Year, I do hope the weather picks up before New Years eve as it's a little windy at the moment.
This week we have another wonderful sketch from our very talented Arlana. I've made 2 cards because when I made my first card a few weeks ago it was a Christmas card which I love, I then realised that this posting would be after Christmas and it was far too late for another Christmas card, so instead I made my darling husband his 50th Birthday card which isn't until February. Well I'll be on time this birthday instead of making it the night before LOL.
This image is perfect for him, I always ask him what he wants for his birthday and his reply is nothing or just you my darling. So I couldn't see myself wrapped up in a large red bow but I think JJ looks pretty good.
