Red and Green should be seen - HCTB DT


Well yesterdays Christmas shopping trip was exhausting, we trudged all over Maidstone which I have to say is now pants for shopping, very few decent shops left, I think it's appalling considering we are meant to be the county town, and then it all seemed to be the same as last year which was the same as the year before and so it goes on.  We did make a start and got a few bits but perhaps I just was not in the mood!!

Anyway enough of my moaning (I could go on believe me) its time for a new challenge over at
Here Come The Boys and we have a colour combo for you this time...

RED AND GREEN..... now that should also help with your Christmas cards.

Really stunning card, Karen. It's great to see a boy at the centre of a Christmas card for a change.
Thanks for your lovely comment re: the cinnamon swirls. Silly me forgot to add the recipe (such as it is!) but it's there now, so you can try them out for yourself. :-)
