A CARD FOR A FRIEND...

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are doing O.K. I'm not to keen on these dark mornings... get up in the dark... come home in the dark... Yikes!!! work is busy- busy as always... Although I must add Christmas is my favourite Time of the Year... Love, Love, LOVE IT... & so does DH....  For me its the sparkle & lights... what about you!!! I am not working Christmas day Yipeeeeee as I got the short straw last year...so looking forward to that one...

Anyway enough of me!  back to my card I made this for a dear friend she LOVES mice..(crafty ones) so I thought she would like this little mouse from Vilda stamps.. her number is V504... She's cute!! My dear friend was feeling a little down lately so I thought this would cheer her up a little.. I also used her favourite colours... She does not leave near me so we chat on the phone and around every 8 weeks we get together for a crafty day.. she lives around 2 hour drive from me!! I hope she likes it.




Thank you so much for your visit today..... Hugs May x x x x

I'm sure your friend will love it - what a great sentiment! Yes, I hate the whole going to work in the dark, coming home in the dark thing... And I've often thought that it's not actually in the run up to Christmas that we need all those pretty lights, it's in the dark days of January and February that I would really like something to lift the gloom!
