Changes and more cards

I had a fairly busy weekend. I managed to get all the pieces cut out for my Christmas cards that I am going to send out. I also want to buy flat, wooden Christmas decoration to attach to the inside of each one. I thought that would be a cool idea.
I will also post a picture here of a recipe card I made for a swap I am in.
I also did some actual scrapbook pages this weekend. I have not done any of that in a couple of years.
Brrrrr...it is cold here today. I think our high was 37. But we are supposed to warm up to about 45 by mid week.
A funny thing happened to me on Saturday. I gave my Mum a call we were talking for a few minutes when her friend decided she wanted to leave, mum said I am going to put the phone down to see her out. Well, I then heard my sister in law and my niece come in. They must have sat down at the table to talk for a few minutes. I heard her singing a cute song about pumpkins with my niece, talking to my sister in law about a fender bender she had been in, all the while I am whistling and saying "Mum,mum,mum" lol She had put the phone down and forgot she was talking to me. I sat on the phone for about 10 mins listening to her talk thinking that she will remember that she laid the phone down. Nope!! Lol So I hung up, watched a couple of tv shows, then tried to call her back, it was STILL busy!!! So I looked for my address book with all my phone numbers that were in it. Could not find it. Grrrr Had to get on the net and look up my friends phone number so she could call my mums cell phone. She did that and found out that my mum was not even at home! She had gone out to hobby lobby to get some wool that was on sale. Lol Ditzy mother!!!!

Ran all the elements through my Xyron to make it easier for attaching to the card

This is a pretty village in england.
I used the Storybook cart for the font and the flourish
