Happy Christmas Everyone

Well I'm afraid I failed miserably when it comes to posting any more of my Christmas cards. My excuse is that I have been at work all week at the garage, and I have had to fit blogging in around everything else.
You would be amazed at how busy we have been all day today, with people coming in to buy their M&S goodies with out having to go to a main store. We are only a medium sized petrol station but we have had 5 tills open and customers queing all day.
It's crazy isn't it - all this for one day, still it is Christmas I suppose he he.
I also had my very own Santa today. A regular customer insisted on buying me a bottle of Cava - 'for being so lovely all Year' How nice was that!!
Any way I thought I would share one last Christmas card with you, made for a very special lady, my Mum.
It is made using some of the fabulous Moonshadow Inks and Moonglow embossing powders from The Stamp Man.
I do love making background papers and these inks are just wonderful for that.
The panel in the centre of the card is made with ultrathick embossing powder which has then had some of the moonglow embossing powder added to the final layer before the stamp has been pressed into it.
It may not be the most traditional of Christmas cards but I love it.
I had better close now. I have to be at work again tomorrow at 6am (we are open 24/7 365 days a year, and Friday is my day to work!!) Still it is actually quite a nice day to work as everyone is in a good mood and then when I get home dinner will be ready :)
The grandchildren are just getting their letters, mince pies and drinks ready to leave for Santa, and of course a carrot for the reindeer. They are so excited. We have been tracking Father Christmas on the internet - oh how times change!!
Any way I just want to wish everyone a Wonderful Christmas, and a very Happy New Year. I hope you have a fabulous day tomorrow.
Love and best wishes
