All is calm

Well the post title refers to the card and not to me!  still battling on with Christmas cards although now I have a pretty reasonable stack of them I'm starting to relax a bit and just enjoy making the last few batches. I really need to get into the Christmas spirit and think about doing some Christmas shopping but even a couple of hours in town today just about wiped me out and I've been lolling about in front of the TV instead of getting something done.  I think I maybe need to add a sentiment or something to this card but I'm liking the white space on it which is quite unusual for me as I normally have to fill every corner. Tree stamps are Stampin Up, lovely as a tree, deer is memory box die and the pine trees are Sizzix. Glittery star is also memory box die.Background coloured with pan pastels
