Christmas Postcard

I just don't seem to be able to get settled down to doing any crafting this week, I know I should be cracking on with Christmas cards but just can't seem to come up with anything I really want to make!
My friend who came over yesterday asked me if I could store her stamps while she is moving, ha ha
like I need more stamps !! so now I not only have hundreds of my own but all hers as well so I will spend even more time looking through stamps and wondering what I could do with them instead of actutally sitting down and making something.Tonight I got out five or six stamps and made myself make a card using some of them, its not very exciting but at least I made one.  Then I played about with my new G45 stamps and made this Christmas postcard which I do like for once. We had the cat to the vets today to have her spayed,she was supposed to wear a halo collar when we fetched her home but she was so distressed with it and then nearly hung herself between the windowsill and a chair that I have had to take it off,hope she doesn't chew her stitches out!
I'm putting my card on a couple of challenges
Winter Wonderland - vintage Christmas
abc christmas challenge - vintage Christmas
