Being Subtle for Monday

Is it just four weeks to Christmas ? No way ..cant be !! Let me check..
OH ME... OH MY , It's true . There have been times this past 12 months, while Doug was fully dependant on  me ,  when I thought that time was dragging  by . But lately I've been thinking that there has only been 12 hours in a day . LOL.   Really though,  with all our children living so far away and them  only having short break over the holidays we will spend a very quiet  Christmas at home .
Oh, hello ,   have you been waiting at my door for long?
Sorry to keep you waiting . Please come in and  welcome to my room . I do have something to share .
This  being my DT post  for Make it Monday,  I  have used some digi paper from our sponsor for this week's  Linky Party
This is just the worst photo but best I could get .

 Back ground  digi paper is from Cupcake Cards&Craft. Subtle image [ bird in a tree] is a tag from KaiserCraft Journal Tags which I placed on a diecut frame.A gold sticker sentiment [ happy birthday ] used .  Pearls, Bow and flowers from my stash . No stamps were used in this creation  so I  hope it will be entered into  CHALLENGE #5 - TREES
This week we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy over at

The wonderful prize this week is a CD with the winner's choice of 4 collections!
 If you would like  to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!
Then , if you can , pop over to the DT 's blogs to see their  fabulous projects .Truly , these ladies are wonderful papercraft artists .
The hardest task for all DT members is choosing an entry to feature on their Make it Monday post .I know that just like me , they find  it hard to choose from so many amazing , inspiring entries .  . 
 I have chosen   number 188

Loved this because it is so bright and cheery and the parcels make great embellishments .
Well that's it for now , thank you for calling in .I hope that you have enjoyed the browsing and will pop in again soon .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
