Ho, Ho, Ho at Crafts Galore Encore

 Hi Crafters,

Well December has arrived, far too quickly for my liking, but here we are none-the-less. I can always remember some of my older relatives saying how time goes quicker as you advance in years but at 57 I was hoping it wouldn't have started just yet!

Anyway I'm here today to share my DT inspiration for the new challenge at Crafts Galore Encore. As always we are an ANYTHING GOES challenge so nice and easy and a whole month to get your entries in too. We are sponsored this month by Gecko Galz who are offering a fabulous $25 voucher to spend in their store!

I have used an image from this wonderful festive set called Retro Christmas Colour Digital Collage Sheet
