Hi there another Christmas card from me today
The theme at CASology this week is 'old' and I decided to go with
holly as it's long been a traditional image at Christmas time.
I even 'googled' it ... this little snippet made me smile
and looks like I'll be dashing out for the ivy this year!!!
"In pagan times, Holly was thought to be a male plant and Ivy a female plant.
An old tradition from the Midlands of England says that whatever one was
brought into the house first over winter, tells you whether the man
or woman of the house would rule that year!
But it was unlucky to bring either into a house before Christmas Eve."
I've used the sketch from this week's CAS(e) This Sketch challenge
and I'm also heading over to:
Simon Says Stamp: Christmas / Holidays
Addicted to Stamps & More: Clean & Simple
Clearly Besotted: Little Pudding & Christmas Sparkle stamps
MFT Die-namics: pierced rectangle dies
Wink of Stella & Glossy Accents
Ok that's all from me today, thanks for stopping by and I'll
be back tomorrow with my Less is More post.
Have fun in whatever you are doing today.
