Winter Wishes card

Hi friends, here is my latest card for the
'Less is More' challenge this week.
 
 
The theme is a colour one this time, (see
the picture below my card). They want us to
 take inspiration from this beautiful Design
 Seeds picture.
 
 
What lovely colours, trust me to have used that 
colour last week too......why does that always
 happen  ;)
 
 
 
Anyway here is my card, come and have a
 closer look........well after my usual ps. that is!



ps. I am late posting my card this time as I have
 been busy getting the house ready for Christmas etc.
We decided on a smaller tree which will go on top
 of a lovely antique table we have. 
 
 
With three grandchildren under 3 I thought it best
 lol.It's up now and all the decorations too whoo hoo!
 
 
  We had  them all over at the weekend so
 hence I am  playing catch up once again! 
 
 
 
All presents bought now at least just got to wrap them all.
 Christmas cards finished  too just got to address those now
.....and relax! 
 
 
Our son has sold his house again ( last sale fell through)
and they have found another house (even nicer than the
 last one they wanted too).
 
 
 
 Fingers crossed it all goes to plan now. Then we can
 move nearer to them next year we  are hoping. I also
 hope  to have some other good news to tell you very
 soon  ;)

  9. Gorgeous card Viv and thanks for joining us on the LIM team last week.
    I did have to do a double take when I saw your card last week as it would also fit perfectly for this week too.
    Love how you've used the colours again this week.
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

  15. Just love those inky splodges Viv! Super creation.
    I don't know why it is, but each week there's always a card which would fit with the following week's challenge! You've done it many times!
    Curious huh!
