Oh Christmas Tree...Oh Christmas Tree

Fa..lalala..la..lalala!
Festive greetings to you all!
The tree's up, tinselled n' baubled til' you can't see anything left of the tree, fairy lights untangled & hanging in every room & outside too.
Yesterday we went to London for the day, a trip to M&M World which was on Oliver's Xmas wish-list, a 5 second visit to Hamleys Toy store (it was so busy, we walked in and straight out again!) and a mosey round the shops for my shop-a-holic daughter Sophie and then finished it off with a lovely meal & a walk round Covent Garden.
There was a 'String' band entertaining the crowds with beautiful music & crazy dancing when all of a sudden the Double-Bass player told us all to be quiet. There was one woman in amongst the whole crowd, who were singing, clapping & laughing along, who was on her mobile phone and she hadn't realised that everything had stopped & only she could be heard talking. There must have a been a couple of hundred people watching the entertainment, suddenly all quiet, listening to this poor woman on her phone still totally oblivious to what was going on her around her. We were all then signalled to point & boo at her, cruel I know...but hilarious!!!
Chrissy card's nearly all done now...phew! This one is Seasonal House on a Hill from Squigglefly ( 5 Seasonal House stamps), coloured with Promarkers & glitter. Papers from the Papermania Festive Frolics collection which I lurv!! Trees cut from the same papers, a lime, sparkly ribbon & snowflake embellie.
Have a good week everyone!

Sounds like you all had an enjoyable time. Love your card, a fab little winter scene and love the trees too. Alas we don't have snow here in Adelaide.
