I'ts Only Words.

Good evening all. Hope you have all enjoyed your weekend.
It's snowing outside and has settled and we have just watched a car attempt to go down our road, change their minds and attempt to reverse back, which they managed eventually.
 Hope it's gone for morning, I have a funeral to go to and although I hate them I want to say goodbye to a lovely lady who has been a client and friend to me since I was a teenager, and I love her.
My card I have today is for the Christmas Card Club and it was the turn of our lovely Dawn to set the theme of  'It's Only Words'
O me O my.... what can I use.... there I was dragging out all my forgotten about boxes with forgotten about stamps and finding nothing but the usual Merry Christmas etc ..... when hey... I came across this beauty, that'll do.... now for paper.... more boxes pulled out.....found the perfect one under my nose.... now to put the boxes back cos I can't move....
Now where did I put the brown card blanks.....Oh no not in one of the boxes I've just put back.... 
Why did I think this was going to be an easy peasy one!!!
This is me we're talking about..
Right, now for my die cuts I know just the one I want, then disaster..... my handle broke off my Grand Calibur.... omg.....brilliant, hope I can get a replacement or I'll just have to buy another one, I can't live without it!!!!
Finally got it finished so here it is ladies.
