Christmas cards + goodies

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all as well as you can be...hugs
Well that's it, the sun has hidden it's face once again and the rain has come out to play instead!
My cards for today are some that I made at our get together on Sunday and of course I had to show you my lovely new goodies :o)



That little snowman is actually a candle that I bought in Holland many years ago. I took a photograph  of it and my friend Pat turned it into a topper.


All images are from my own photographs and I had printed them out at home of course. The red backing is from one of the goodies I bought on the day. The blue backing is from J&P (myself and PatEssex of DC) Holly cut with a Memory Box die. Basically very simple cards.


And here is what I bought, lots to play with there :o)
