Must see an Ornament or it could be an Ornament!

Hello fellow blogger
It's that well known saying from me 
Sparkles Christmas Buddies
Has a new challenge today
It starts from the 1st of each month
Choosen by our very own 
Mary
Must see an Ornament or it could be an Ornament!
As we are a christmas challenge blog it's got to be christmassy
And here is my take
 This is of course a Christmas Cracker and a musical christmas tree
l just love the novelty tree but when the grandchildren where younger
It sort of frighten them not so much now they love it as l do
l didn't make the cracker it was a card from a dear friend and 
It's just great for this challenge 
As you see it's got a couple of bows, gems and sentiment shop bought l think
l save lots of card fronts as they come in handy for recycling as l have
Done for this challenge 
Hopefully you will join in and it would be lovely to see what your take can be
You can see the Dt's wonderful creations
Now lets see yours
Thankyou for stopping by hope you enjoyed your visit

Thank you

Good morning
It's a lovely day today managed to cut the grasses in the last
Couple of days due to the fine weather 
Here is a simple card put together using lots of snippets
Thankyou folder, few pearls, flower, Floral backing card and Scalloped card
 
I made this card for a dear friends family member of my late husband
As we sent Christmas cards every year l didn't send many in the first year l lost
My husband Dennis and left it a year before getting intouch explaining
My no Christmas card to her after a lenghty telephone conversation 
l recieved the most caring letter from her and this was my thankyou card
l also thought l'd blogged this but l went back to 2016 can't find it on my post
So if l have accept my appologies but it's a lovely card and l wanted to show it off
As it's snippets used it's always great to entering into Di's challenge
Thank you for your visit and hope you have an enjoyable day whatever your plans
Take care
