The last weekend before Christmas is almost done, but we have a bonus in South Africa. Today is a public holiday...Reconciliation Day...and so we are lucky to have tomorrow as another holiday...yes a long weekend. This is also the start of the big holiday season. The schools are all closed, industry closes in the main, for the summer holidays, and the mass exodus of people to the coast and other holiday destinations. If you are lucky enough to stay home, the roads are less busy and lovely summer weather to enjoy.
I am very short on Christmas cards, but this one was made for a friend.
The patterned papers were some from my stash left over from previous years. The white card with the holly leaves was done with texture past, using a stencil from Crealies. The Christmas trees are from a Lea'bilities die, just cut them apart and mounted with foam tape. The star and the pointsetia are Marianne Design dies. Finished off with a sentiment from last year's Papermania set and some beads and pearls.
