Steamy Christmas

Hello everybody,

It was my birthday yesterday and I got spoilt to a lovely meal at a very expensive restaurant - but boy did I feel fat afterwards lol. Need to do more exercise today - does going out and fighting through the crowds to do some shopping count??

I had to quickly make a final Christmas card for one of hubbies friends who is into his model steam trains - and this is what I came up with:

I used a grey Papermania card blank and layered some My Minds Eye chalkboard patterned bunting paper into the middle of this. I used an Anita's topper depicting santa with a steam train. To finish I used a strip of washi tape, holly die-cut in silver and a silver sentiment added on top of the washi tape.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Quick Cards - Brilliant Bunting
dragonfly dreams - non traditional Christmas (although the image is traditional I feel the colour scheme is definitely not)
Alphabet Challenge - T for Trees (there is a tree in the background!)
 Fussy and Fancy #202 Christmas
MTTC #361 Christmas
Casology #279 Gray
CRAFT #446 Christmas
Crafty Catz #397 Santa Claus is coming to town

I now have some photo's from the recent family get-together for the father-in-laws 60th Birthday, and also the only get together we would have over Christmas.

First up is the table and Poinsettia!

Next is the brother-in-law and his fiancee.

Now there is me and hubby:

Unfortunately those were the only pictures I got from the weekend as we were far too busy playing silly games lol.

Thanks for looking, and have a lovely Christmas if I do not see you before then :X
