Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge # 136 Spread a Little Joy.......

Good Afternoon readers,
Well have been away from my desk for a couple of day's....... but back today, well what you all been up to..... the weather here in Cornwall is still on the humid side, we did have a few claps of thunder last night, and then rain, but still warm and sticky...... have not done much on the crafting front, my DT work is all up to date, but I did have a lovely surprise in the week, found out that I was in the top three over on wickedwednesdayatc Challenge, and also had an Honorable mention over on 52cct.blogspot. so I would like to say a big thank you ladies, well today has been a challenge  for me so far, my printer has died, I have tried unplugging, re plugging, turning upside down and shaking, but no, still not working..... so rang hubbie at work, hyperventilating down the phone, of course hubbie was as calm as ever, saying do not worry I will sort it, but me not being the most patient of people, was screaming what this minute, I need my printer... quite embarrassing really, like some spoiled brat........ so hubby asked if I had tried turning on and off, etc etc..... to which I replied yes I have done all that plus the shaking........ so printer has been deemed officially kaput..... so I am now awaiting the arrival of a new one.......  which hopefully will not take to long......  left what sort up to hubbie....... so when it came to joining in with the fun over on craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge it was a challenge, as I was unable to print any Christmas Papers, so I rummaged through my stash to find something appropriate for the challenge and my entry is below......
