Happy Christmas ?

I think that should really mean "Happy Valentine's Day" !

Are you having and good day and being spoilt rotten ? I was given the most beautiful card by my DH this morning and I told him that he ought to take up crafting with me 'cause it must have cost him a fortune. He then proceeded to remind me that the card I gave him (which was lovingly handmade) had probably cost him in excess of £40 so perhaps buying one was the quicker and cheaper option ! There's no romance left, is there ?!!!!

Anyway, back to Christmas..... my fabby good friend Lols suggested perhaps I join in the ABC Christmas Challenge this week as the theme is "Decoration". Lols sent me a gorgeous Christmas card with a "must have" stamp on it and I managed to get my gluey little fingers on one from e-bay and so when it arrived, I made a card straight away but put it away for next year ! Lols pursuaded me to get it out for this challenge !!!

I am sorry, I have no idea who makes the red paper, it was in my scraps tray. The silvery coloured paper is BasicGrey.

The stamp is by Magenta and I believe is called "Holly Ornament". I heat embossed this with sparkly black embossing powder and then added some Stickles for extra sparklies.

The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment you can hardly see is by Hero Arts !

Enjoy the rest of your romantic day and thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you may leave.
