The Christmas family

Can anyone explain to me why I'm making more Christmas cards when I've got other cards that need to be made ... and I also want to try out my new gelli plate? One of the explanations is 'because I love making Christmas cards', another is that I'm a bit behind with Facebook Sunday's with Santa and don't want to lag any further behind.

So here is my card for week 16: family. At first I was going to make a card with a family around the fireside or something similar, but then I found a recycled picture in my Christmas box and decided that was perfect for the 'family' theme. I've used a Hunkydory card for the background, simply adding a golden sentiment to match the gold of the image. A simple card, but I don't think it needs anything else.

This is also for:

Joanna Sheen: recycle
Pink gem 77: going green (I chose 'recycle' rather than the colour green)
Crimbo crackers 40: anything goes
Celebrate the occasion 109: clean and simple
Inspiration avenue: talk to the animals - I wonder what these animals would have to say if they were asked?
Challenges 4 everybody 19: anything goes
Eclectic ellapu: literally anything goes
Cards for men 8: anything goes
Crafting by designs: anything goes
DL.ART thankful Thursday April linky: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 100
