Traditional Christmas At Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone,
 
I have finally surfaced again!!
 

Firstly, I must thank all of you, for your kind messages on my last post.
I do not ever want to move house again!!
Super stressful!!!!!! And I have been comfort eating!!
 
I have held off saying anything, incase it all fell apart again.
The first couple that started the process of buying our house, and then
dropped out, have returned!!
 
The lady had had a couple of falls, broke a toe and
then they had family problems.
It all became too much for her to deal with, so called a halt to buying
a home. This was on doctors orders.
 
She is fine now and eager to move into our house.
We all agreed, we want to move as soon as the solicitors can do the legal bits!
We are hoping for the end of October at the latest!
 
Still keeping everthing crossed.
I am even having a stall, at a coffee morning fund raising event
for MacMillan Care today.
................................................
 
Now, onto my return to Winter Wonderland Challenge!
Thanks to Lynsey for covering for me.
 
Our theme for this week is
Traditional Christmas.
 
I have used a Robin Stamp, free with 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. Along with the papers too.
Coloured with Distress Inks.The dies were new ones I bought at Ally Pally.
 
 
He was really nice to colour and he is a proper Robin shape.
 
 
The Poinsettia dies, I bought at Sandown Park Fair.
 
 
Our generous Sponsor this week is:

Hopefully, by the time you read this I might have my telephone back working!

Hi Carol, love your card! I think robins make the best Christmas cards. Well I know the robins don't actually make cards (lol) but I'm sure you know what I mean! So glad your house sale is going ahead again. Hope it all goes smoothly now. Hugs Sue x
