Good Morning All
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope you all have a wonderful festive season.
It is a hinged style card with an acetate window.
There is a Dufex decoupage butterfly image behind the window.
The flowers are Cheery Lynn Roses dies cut from shades of yellow card
Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms cut from the pages of an old book and inked on the edges.
The green leaf is from a pack of die cuts I bought on Ebay.
This shows the inside, I stuck the borders from the decoupage pack onto the inside folds.
And, finally, a satin ribbon tied into a bow and stuck down with heart shaped pearl.

We walked down to the village square last night to view the Nativity Scene they put up each year. It is a working scene about 8ft x 8ft and is lit inside, by this I mean the fires are lights and the water wheel goes round and the shepherd moves his spade etc etc.
It is all behind mesh to protect it.
They have done away with alot of the lights through the village this year because of cut backs, but I'm so glad they have kept the Nativity Scene.
In the square where this is, they have the New Year Celebrations at midnight on 31st. There is a Spanish tradition of 12 grapes. ------
When it is midnight in Spain on New Years Eve, each time the clock chimes, all the people put a grape in their mouth. By the time the clock has finished chiming for the twelfth time, everybody has to have finished their grapes and the New Year starts.
Eating the grapes is very funny because everybody starts the New Year with a full mouthful of grapes. It's almost impossible to finish eating the grapes by the time the clock finishes chiming and quite often people still have all the grapes in their mouths, and they start looking at each other and have to laugh.
If you manage to eat the 12 grapes then you will have 12 months good luck.
