Hi everyone, I'm back from a short cruise in the Pacific Islands, feeling relaxed and ready for the hectic activity that always surrounds Christmas.  The theme this week at Less is More is Family which is just perfect for Christmas, when families try to spend this happy time together.

My card uses a beautiful digi image by A Day for Daisies, called Sisters at the Beach.  I added the clouds by IO and the scrabble tiles are by Bo Bunny.

I had to add this photo below, because it is so special to us - being of our youngest grandchildren, playing in the water near their home in Brisbane during a week when we had been looking after them while their parents were away.  There is only 14 months between them, and they are such good friends, even now (at 7 and 8).  It was quite a deserted spot, so no problem for the nude beachgoer!  You can see how the image of my card appealed - family is our greatest joy!

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas.
