Merry Christ-Mouse

Good Morning,

Lorna and I had a lovely evening yesterday at the Garden Centre in our village where they had the opening of their Christmas display.  Such beautiful decorations, food and gifts for Christmas, a 20% discount, a complementary glass of wine or juice and a mince pie.

I am off out this morning with my cousin to the Trafford Centre, I have been instructed by my youngest granddaughter Lauren (who will be 7 on Friday) that she wants a red rucksack with a zip around and a pocket on the front!!! - I think they might have one in Debenhams, or should I say I hope they have one.

Anyway on to the new challenge today at Fab'n'Funky where this week our host is the lovely Lorraine with her choice of:

Die Cuts and/or Punches

Our Sponsor this week is:

Hope to see you joining in our challenge this week.


  1. I love hoe the youngsters have such exacting requirements these days Pat, but better that than spend hours shopping with not a clue what to but people. I've hear the Trafford Centre is a great shopping place, unfortunately a bit too far away from us.

    Nice bright and cheery Christmas card.
