First Christmas card for 2016

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

I am on holiday from work this week, and I had intended going to buy a new desktop PC because this one is getting to be so slow now. It is old and still has XP on it, but it has been a very good friend. I can't get rid of it though cuz my SCAL doesn't work on Windows 7 ( I have it on my laptop) so I am keeping it to use with my even more ancient Cricut. So, I will be using my old laptop as my main computer before long. Yes, most of my "use a lot" favourites are old, just like me LOL.

Anyhow, not buying another computer has allowed me to go internet shopping for dies, and I have ordered/bought no less that 7 singles/sets in the past week. I have received two sets (one of them used on my card for today) and hopefully the rest will arrive today or tomorrow. 
In the meantime, methinks I may have a trip to Byrkley Park today or tomorrow, haven't been for quite a while!

The die set I have used on this is Stitched Square Layers from Memory Box, the other set is the rectangle version.
Sentiment was a gift from a Docrafts friend, and I love it so much that I promptly ordered it from Joanna Sheen, hoping it arrives today!
All white card is linencard from The Range and basecard is approx 6x6.
Not much else I can say except that I will be making it again :o)

Simply elegant and beautiful, Jackie! Sounds like your computer is the same era as mine! I too have XP, and ought to have a new one soon. It is the hassle of copying everything over that concerns me! Hope you get some decent weather for your trip tomorrow.
