Its begining to look a lot like Christmas...

or as my gorgeous little boy says Chrimmis!!!

Finally after an hour and a half wrestling with putting the tree up and a futher hour decorating our monster tree (8ft) is now up!
Now I just need to do the rest!!!

The tree was done at the weekend but its been one of those weeks with most of the house suffering from the sniffles so I've only just got round to taking a pic.
Also done a little while ago (at our retreat weekend) were these cards. I have decided they will be my Christmas cards for friends and extended family this year.

Both of these cards were made using the new Tags til Christmas set along with embossing folders. I used Cherry cobbler and Always Artichoke to keep with my vintage feel and the Cherry Cobbler seam binding certainly adds to that feel.

Finally I just had to show you a parcel of goodies which arrived at my door yesterday sparking the same level of excitement as when Mr UPS turns up with my lovely SU goodies. It was the medicine i needed yesterday and certainly made the sniffles much easier to bear lol.
 This was sent all the way from Italy by the lovely Jeannie after a conversation at convention about how much I missed the American sweets I ate as a child while living in Berlin with my Dad who was in the RAF.
Jeannie ( ) is currently living in Italy with her husband who is in the US Army and creates the most wonderful cards so pop on by and have a look.
I'm just hoping my parcel of English goodies arrives with her in time for Christmas.

I hope you are getting in the festive mood too and enjoying the lead up to the big day.
