3 more sleeps

Welcome back to my countdown to Christmas and yes there are just 3 more sleeps until the big day. I only have 2 more doors of my advent calendar to open.
Number 23 is waiting for tomorrow morning

I have just got home from my penultimate day at work. I have just got to go in on Christmas Eve and then I am off until 2nd January.

I picked up the turkey on the way home and my Christmas CD is on as I type this.
Parcels are appearing under the tree............

and yes there is even a stocking for our Billy.
My cards are hanging from the stairs
and my Christmas candle is about to be lit
and we finally put up the last of our Christmas decorations, these sweet ornaments

Yes it really is beginning to feel as though Christmas is just around the corner.

My card today features a stenciled inky background I made using Tim Holtz' festive stencil and a Memory box snowflake die cut. I have added a LOTV sentiment.
The papers are ancient ones from my stash. Pretty CAS for me I know!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Deep Ocean Christmas is all around
Creative Inspirations Christmas/New Year
Loves rubberstamps Holiday blitz anything goes
That craft place anything goes
Totally Gorjuss love at Christmas

I hope all your preparations are coming together? We had a grand wrapping session last night so everything is now wrapped and ready for Santa.

Back tomorrow,
