Christmas is Coming at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning. 
Can you believe it's the weekend already?? Where has this week gone - too fast that's for sure!!!
We have had a busy few days - Thursday was spent visiting family from Leeds and then a house Warming cum Halloween cum firework party in the evening.
Yesterday we went down to Portsmouth to pick up my scrummilicious Granddaughter Lola Arizona and then Jamie, Rowena and my other snuggalicious Granddaughter Ruby Mae came to stay but at 11pm they decided to go home as neither Ruby Or Lola would settle down to sleep lol!!! The joys of parenthood eh???

So I have two cards to share with you today.

My first is for the new challenge over at
