Serenity - junior infants style

Hello and a lovely Christmas Eve to everyone! I am stealing a moment to post my card - my laptop is still as dead as doornail and I can't get online for proper blog hopping and commenting. :( I'll get new one tomorrow. How do I know? Well, the conversation with hubby went a bit like that earlier this week:
"The laptop was delivered today. Do you want me to wrap it?"
"Sure. SURPRISE!!!"

So you see, I KNOW it's under the tree. I bloody wrapped it myself!!! lol

In my background the main celebration is on Christmas Eve so we're having a big pork roast with all the works tonight with family and then tomorrow we're off to my mother in law for a turkey dinner. So my kids are lucky enough to get TWO Christmases :D

I wanted to show you one of my last Christmas cards for this year - did I hear a sigh of relief?
I won LOTV voucher at their challenge blog recently I could not leave that image in the store - so cute and funny!
This card feature all my laest addictions: Kraft card, white ink, gingham ribbon, corrugated card, buttons, bakers twine... I thought is was very fitting one to show you today. I found a 50-pack of pre-score kraft crd bases in one of the online stores here so I'm a very happy bunny indeed now. They're not 6x6 as my usual ones, more like 5,25x5,25. I'm fine with it. :)
The colouring is Prismacolour job. So enjoying it at the moment!
