Blue Christmas

Do you all remember Shakin' Stevens? He kinda popped into my head when I was thinking of a title for this blog post.  His was one of the first albums I ever had and I loved the song 'Blue Christmas'.
I generally leave it until November before I start making Christmas cards, but I have the cute 'Winter Sprite' from Aurora Wings so decided to do at least one now!
