An Advent Easel


Well i'm back and i'm glad to say that the Europeans beat the Americans, by 1 point in The Ryder Cup and it came down to the last game, unfortunately i missed the winning putt as i had to go and pick son up from nursery !!!, typical

I must confess i did start this card in Somerset, when i went for a crafting day with the girls and have only finally managed to finish it today !, it was a challenge set by the lovely Kay, thanks hun, i don't think i would have been brave enough to do it on my own - special thanks on this card also goes to Angiebabes who kindly let me use her stamp and papers, thanks hun.
