My decorations/tree have been up a few days now, my cards and presents are done (that's a first) and I'm feeling quite relaxed this year.
It will be a quiet Christmas Day for us, just hubby, my dear mum and myself, my two daughters are at their in-laws for Christmas this year.

I hope you have a good day and thank you for visiting here.

What fabulous little ATC’s these are. I used to be in a lot of swaps on Flickr but sadly they all closed one by one. It will be a quiite Christmas for us. Just me and The Doc and that wretched Elf who has decided he is stopping. Thankyou for your lovely card. Hugs Mrs A.

Oh I just love the wee cards, an adorable snowman and beautiful background.
You're very well organised Lorraine, well done you.
We go to my son's for Christmas, he's just up the road, so no travelling.
We have a funeral before though as Alistair's brother died on Tuesday.
Thank you for your beautiful card, Kate x x
