As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Christmas Carol & WHY

Hi Crafters,

I'm popping in today with my last inspirational card for the new challenge at As You Like It.
As You Like It is the last of my three design teams that I have decided to step down from, if you saw my post last Sunday you will know the reasons why, but suffice to say I was trying to fit too much in to my time. I will miss all the ladies on the team, I had a fab time creating for these challenges and intend to join in a challenge or two when I can in the future.

We'd like to see your Favourite Christmas Carol and please tell us Why it is your favourite.

I have a few favourite Carols really but I've chosen
'Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly'
'Tis the Season to be Jolly'
Fa, la, la, la, la, - la, la, la, la.
I think this is one of the most cheerful carols and I really love to sing it.

Carolers - Silhouette Cut File
Papers - Dovecraft - Glad Tidings
Joanna Sheen Lamp Post Die
Clearly Besotted Sentiment Banner Stamp

Hi Lorraine, I love this card. It is a perfectly traditional Christmas card and they are my favourites.

You are very sensible to review your DT responsibilities - they are always difficult decisions to make but you must n't feel bad - we all know what it is like! I have loved being a teamie with you at ABC Christmas Challenge and I am sending you lots of love and luck for your future crafting adventures.

Thank you for visiting me at tanglemouse - especially as I have been so busy recently I have been a very bad blogging friend!

Sending the best wishes your way for a merry and peaceful Christmas.

love from
