Last Christmas card of 2010

Hi there just wanted to share my last minute make from Christmas Eve

This Christmas was strange for me, waking up with no one else to worry about except us, hubby and me. We met up with the rest of the family but the morning was a bit of a challenge. I should add here it was a lovely Christmas made even better because I didn't have to cook, YaY!! 

Anyway I am usually pretty organised when it comes to present buying and decorations putting up but not this year. I've never been so laid back about it all, hence my last minute card............. The inspiration came when I visited Mina's blog 
 A very inspiring lady, pop over if you haven't already, wondrous crafting to see:0)

All those years with the children rushing in to see you on Christmas morning and then suddenly all grown up and left home takes a lot of getting used to.
Love your card, will definitely check out Minas blog. Hugs Annette x

Had a very laid back Christmas morning but it all changed when my 4 year old Grandson walked through the door and I loved every minute of it, especially as my eldest son (who used to be a chef) cooked the Christmas dinner.

Love the card and thanks for the link to Mina's blog, I popped over for a look and it is excellent.

I didnt have to do dinner either YAY back at you!!! but the morning went far too fast and we had to be in the car berfore we knew it and gettin a 12 year old to move on Christmas morning when they have new gismo's is nigh on impossible.
