Its a Tradition.....

and has been for as long as I remember to make my Grannys Christmas card.  I can recall being wee and getting the glue out and making both my Grannys Christmas cards with the cut out bits from the year befores cards on them.. Even in those days I liked lots of glitter!!!

So here is Grannys card from Mum and Dad.  She has a great garden which is always visited by the birds so thought she would like this. 
I decorated the inside too.
