Christmas Festive Lantern

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers. Firstly I want to wish you all A Very Happy, Healthy and  Peaceful 2105. I'm slowly getting back to normal after all the holiday visitors. My card today is the last Christmas card I made and the one I made to give to my Husband. Its a LOTV image called Festive Lantern that I bought at the GNPE back in October.

I hope you have all survived the holidays and are now getting back to some crafting. I'm catching up with some design team stuff and have a couple of commissions to do in the next two weeks. I am also behind with comments so apologies to everyone but hope to get caught up very soon with all your gorgeous blogs.
 I 'm now going to finish packing up the last of the Christmas decorations and then some crafting if I get time. The house looks so bare and  I always hate putting the tree out for the recycling. 
Before I go I wanted to mention that I was delighted to get a top three in the Graphit markers challenge with my lavender Aurora Wings Icy Snow Queen card .
Enjoy the rest of the weekend hugs Carole x
