We met for lunch and I always enjoy seeing the decorations that the shopping centres put up for Christmas.
I really liked the lights around the escalators in House of Fraser
and this wintry look in their basement.
I managed to tick off quite a few presents from my list ;0)
My card today is inspired by my trip and the rather non traditional Christmas colours I saw. I used my Visible Image trees stamps. I inked a backing with distress inks. The snowy foreground I embossed and the die cut is Cheery Lynn. I added some Frantage to give a snowy effect and a snowy ribbon.
and a close up.
I'm not a pink girl at all but I rather like this one.

We certainly got a taste of winter at the weekend, sleet and cold wind on Saturday but bright clear frosty mornings which suit me fine. Keep warm and thanks for visiting today and leaving your kind comments.
Bye for now,
