The First Noel... the angels did say... was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay (all singalong)

Hello! I hope you are all doing ok. I've been trying to post this card for three days but keep finding jobs to do.

Anyway, here it is... a card that I made for my daughter's boyfriend. I've used a Sue Wilson Framed Noel Die... and some Wild Rose Studio 'Holly Lane' Papers. And some Gems to finish off.

I'm not sure I would call this card Clean and Simple because of the patterned paper? but maybe it is minimalist? I quite like how it came out anyway.

All the Christmas food arrived this morning... so we are stocked up! My daughter comes home tomorrow to spend Christmas with us and I can't wait!!! SO looking forward to spending some time with her and watching Downton etc! :-)) 

I will try and pop back with another Christmas Card... but first I need to photograph it... which is a chore when it never comes light! but at least the days are getting longer again now!! 

Just in case I don't catch up with you again.... I would like to wish you all the best for Christmas and New Year! Sending HUGE hugs to all those that need. You are all wonderful blogging buddies and I really do appreciate your visits to my blog!
Take Care

This is gorgeous Sue and what a beautiful die, I don't think you need much more with that it would detract from it. Sounds like you are all set. I am just off shortly to pick up my turkey and final bits then a day of cooking and preparing!Have a wonderful Christmas hugs Susan x

Love the card Sue, great idea to use the patterned paper against the plain background. I find myself tempted by these SW dies but don't know how much I would use them and I keep promising myself I am not going to buy as much stuff.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas I'm looking forward to Downton as well.

Many many thanks for your comments over the past year love reading them you are so generous in your praise.

Have a great day with your family love Meg
