Christmas is coming! Bah Humbug...

Yep, not long now folks! But do you know I just don't feel at all christmassy this year... 2012 hasn't been the greatest of years for me so I'll be happy to see the back of it to be honest. And I won't be spending Christmas with my family this year, so I'm just not in a very festive mood :( Hence my lack of Christmas projects on my blog... but here's a little card anyway...
I'm not all bah humbug though... here's a picture of my front room, complete with Christmas tree and crib (and can you spot the Roses chocolates... none left now and it's not even Christmas yet)! The picture was taken before the cat started to eat the (artificial) tree...
Well hope you all have a lovely weekend... and are feeling the Christmas spirit more than me!

PS: I forgot to say Shelly, I bought my cello cones from Ebay...they were about £3 for 25 and I used 2 cones for each completed soup :) Donna ♥ x
