Come in and sit down, and have some lovely honey-roast ham. You can have a choice of dessert - Lovely Linda has brought some Lemon Meringue Pie to go with the honeycomb icecream. Maybe you travelled over on the same flight and already had some! BIL in Sydney saw a couple of frosty pics from Christmas Day and said he wouldn't mind it being a bit cooler over there right now!
This one definitely gets a whole basketful of Peggy's extra points for masculine cards - what a lovely set it is. I can almost smell the piney resin and feel the sticky sap just looking at your cones and sprigs.

Shirley - this is a great set - I can't believe you haven't used it before. I love your layout and the color choices - it is a great card. I am scared of bears too - I brought my DH - he is a great hunter and he brought plenty of ammo in case we find any unfriendly bears. I told him that while this group is really wild, he will have to bring tranquilizer shells instead of bullets though because we don't want to see blood on our trip or get in trouble with the wildlife police. With all this yummy food, I am guessing we are going to attract a few critters!

Sure glad you inked it up Shirley! This is simple and very pretty. Love your colours and the sentiment in the middle.
Good to see you could come to the party, have some mead and dance around, you'll see the bears are not fierce at all here, they are joining the "KIND BEAR" group, which is a non-profit organisation toward helping humanising bears.

Wonderful colors and images, Shirley! So pretty! So glad to meet you here at the tea party!
Shirley, I was fortunate to have the oportunity to visit your beautiful country and city many years ago! It took us 26 hours to get there, but was well worth it! I would love to come back some day! Couldn't ask for nicer friendlier people!
