Dutch Dare Challenge 328: Use a Charm

With one week before christmas I'm not stressed.
OK, all christmas cards are gone, decorations are finished, there's food for a complete army, but when it comes to buying the presents it's a disaster.
Wanted to do all the christmasshopping this morning, but it turned out a little different. There wasn't a parkingspot near the shops (I think everybody is doing their christmasshopping today). Had to drive circles for 30 minutes before someone finally left. It wasn't really close, but it is better than parking the car at home and go on my bike (don't have to much storing space on my bike).
Then I went from shop to shop ending up with only a third of all the things I wanted to buy. So much for speed shopping. Have to go into the city tomorrowmorning, because I don't want to take the girls with me.
When they come along we always end up at the toystore and with their pretty smiles and compliments about how sweet mum is they always walk out with something new. And when they have their new toys they think shopping is over and want to go home.
So tomorrow the second (and hopefully last) round of speed shopping.
Enough about Christmas, presents and all the stress that goes with it, and on to this weeks challenge on the Dutch Dare.
This week we want you to use a Charm somewhere on your card.

I made a little Christmas gift box, which is on it's way to a very sweet little girl in England.

I'm of to prepare some chickenwings for Ruby and Britt's Christmas dinner at school tonight. they've asked the parents to prepare all kind of yummie things for this dinner. I did read the list of everything that is going to be served tonight, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed the girls won't get sick tonight.

There's so much and there are some combinations that make me sick just reading about it (meatballs - chickenwings - whipped cream - icecream, peanutbutter etc).

I hope they will have lots of fun and when they are finished with their dinner we are all going to sing a lot of christmas songs outside the school.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

xoxo Karin
