Hi all,

How is everyone?  Hope everyone's okay. Well I've had a quiet week, taking each day as it comes as my M.E has been playing up and slowing me down.Managed to do plenty of crafting of course. Our main computer has crashed - argh..... and all my pics of my cards etc are not backed up - so cross with myself.I'm hoping there might be a way to retrieve them but who knows.....  Note to self - back up everything!!!!!!  I've had a nice time embossing this morning so here's another christmas card to add to my collection.
I decided to do a monochrome card using gold and brown, quite different for me.

I used - kraft card, xmas tree - snowflake-swiss dots embossing folder. gold card, gold pen, card candi, tag and vintage photo distress ink.
