Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Feeling so much better now, and almost back to normal if I know what that is. LOL.
Thank you so much for all your well wishes.

Today I am posting a Christmas card to remind you all about the 
that starts on the 25th of the month over on SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is a Hunkydory one which I decoupged, and glittered.
I just love this image as it reminds me of years gone by when you had milk bottles delivered to your door.
I added some Tonic Die cuts to the outside of the image, and the corners are a Tonic Die also.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me and leave such wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny, beautiful Christmas card. I remember the days of milk bottles on the doorstep. I also remember having milk at school. In summer it would be all warm and yucky, and in winter it would be practically frozen !!! Janice xx

A lovely card Jenny and I love the pretty decoupaged image. I do remember having my milk bottle tops pecked by the birds back in the 70s when the milkman delivered. Barbxx

What do you mean 'when you had milk bottles delivered to your door' I still do and would change it, even though Hubby keeps going on about it, couldn't cope with having to run to the Supermarket for milk every other verse end.

Glad you are feeling a lot better and this is one lovely card, gorgeous dies and a fabulous image. Unfortunately the poor bluetits are not able to get at our milk as we have a metal cover for the bottles.

Thank you for your continuing support for the Allsorts challenge

Sorry you not been well, but glad to hear you are better. Doing a bit of catching up in blog land and your pretty card did take me back to milk bottles on the doorstep. Some pecked at by the birds eating the cream on top, and some disappearing completely when someone on the way to work or school was thirsty! Xxx

Hi Jenny
Super card. Those filigree die cuts are fab.
Glad to see you're on the mend.
We still have a milkman I've seen on his rounds about 4 in the morning.

Jenny this card takes me right back to my childhood as you have mentioned, when we had milk delivered to the house. Those blue tits used to love the cream from the top of the milk didn't they?
Happy times.

A beautiful card, love how you've framed the image too.

Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x
