Here I am, back to making Christmas cards. Unfortunately, the weather is still cold & wintry - it snowed a bit this morning while we were in Canterbury for a hospital appointment, but it didn't last & as it was only flurries, didn't lay. However, the fact that it's still cold enough to snow in April, is a bit depressing. I love Winter, I really do, but I'm just about all wintered out - where is the sun ? A bright sunny day here & there is not enough. I want to get in my garden & hack through the weeds. I want to get my seeds sown, my veggies planted & have a good general tidy up, but it's so cold, I don't feel inclined to go out unless I really have to. After all, there's more of me to get cold than there is of other people !! :o)
I just want to feel the sun on my face, watch the birds in the birdbath, play with grandsons 1a & 1b & just have some brighter, warmer days. It's not much to ask for, really, is it ? And I know I'm not the only one wanting Spring to hurry up & arrive :o)
Anyway - Hazel's challenge 118 is to make a card with a Christmas carol or song theme. I made a start on one the other day, but suddenly realised that *The Night Before Christmas* was a story/poem, not a carol/song, so I had to start all over again. I really am a PeaJayKay of little brain these days :o)
I decided to go with the song *Oh, Christmas Tree* & here it is.
The background card is quite sparkly, but it doesn't show up very well here & it also looks a bit darker than it is in *real life* :o)
I'm also going to enter it in Hazel's Anything Goes for April Challenge.
Now I have to get on with a couple of birthday cards, so TTFN !! :o)
