A Very White Christmas~

Hi All~

NO! I am not dreaming of a white Christmas, I am NOT dreaming of Christmas at all...
On Christmas Day this year I will be the big 50, so it's going to be a quiet affair (unlike my 40th Birthday).
For my 40th I had a party inbetween Christmas and New Year, it was a themed party and 60+ of my friends dressed up as Pop Singers....Every one of them, it was fantastic. I know I cannot name then all but:
I was Boy George, hubby was Noddy Holder, Angie was Tina Turner, I had the Bay City Rollers, Punk Rockers, The Spice Girls, Elvis, The Blues Brothers, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Alice Cooper, and loads more, I totally loved it~
All my friends were kind enough to donate over £700 between them for the Local Autistic Society. It was brilliant and I remember it as if it was only yesterday (wish it was)!!

Tonight hubby is at another Beer Festival....I am slightly worried about this one as I was informed that they have a specialist beer on (If what he is saying doesn't concern paper or ink I loose interest quite easily) but he said they have this great beer and it's 11%.....11%......OMG I hope he only has half a one!!! OR I am in big trouble in little China tomorrow morning, there are going to be moans and bathroom noises I don't even want to think about..... Please let him only have one!!

Right onto tonight's card. I am still on Christmas mode, no stopping me, I want to be prepared big time so here it is.
I have had this "Old Father Christmas" Image for a couple of years and made quite a few cards with it last year, I almost forgot I had it.
Anyway I kept this card as white as possible, stamped and embossed image and sentiment, and used a couple of Cuttlebug Folders.

Fab card Debbie and great stamping. Your 40th sounds like a hoot, what a brilliant idea.
Hope your other half is still standing when he gets home after his 11% pint!
