Neighbours!

Afternoon blogging buddies.

Remember me telling you I was making cards to give to our neighbours? well at last they are finished. 

There are two different designs I've done for them this year, but I'll show you this one for today and post the other one in a couple of days.

This design has our street name on the sign post at the front of the house, but I've blurred it out for internet purposes, I also put each neighbours door number on to the front door.

It's taken some time to get them all done, but it's just a little something I like to do for them all, thank goodness I live in a cul-de-sac and not a long street!!

Don't think I've done too bad for someone that really detests making Christmas cards!

Look out for the other design next week, it's somewhat different to my usual style.

As usual, challenges and recipe below. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

What a lovely thought, Jacee and all personalised too! Love the sweet house and scrummy glittered snow!
