Bah humbug -christmas trees

I have had to make a quick card this week for the Bah humbug challenge . Now that my son as moved back home and we have our Granddaughter staying over every weekend and also on Tuesdays all day. My time seems to be filled with washing and housework instead of crafting. But it's all good fun. I have made my card from  recyled parts. The white embossing was left over from another card. The background with the christmas trees was packaging from Tescoes chocolate bars I bought Christmas 2009. The snowman was stamped last year. The snowflake was cut off a gift card and the snow and ribbon was from a card someone sent me last Christmas. I just knew that some of the little bits I hoard would come in sometime. Hope you like it. I'm off for a stiff drink to see if I can shake this virus off I've been struggling with all week.
Thanks for visiting. It's much appreciated. Happy crafting. Hugsx ChrisB
