I did warn you it might be a while until you saw me again and it has been! Can you believe that Christmas has come and gone and now we are heading up in to a new Year?
Our Christmas was quiet - as it always is, but at least this year we didn't have to deal with a complete melt down from Emily. She was actually very good. She didn't get up until 7am and then it took her about 20mins until she realised that it was Christmas day and then it took 3 goes of running from our bedroom to hers until she managed to look into her stocking and realise that she had some presents!
She really is such a good little girl and honestly thought that the presents in her stocking were all she was getting and was happy with that - then when we got downstairs she thought the first few presents were all she was getting and was happy with that - and then when she realised she was getting lots of present she was over the moon!!
Sharing a picture of pre-Christmas decorating the tree in the conservatory:
Anyway Christmas is over for another year and so - moving on.
Here is my card for hubby's birthday:
Pollycraft digi: Maurice Hot Stuff, coloured with my Promarkers. Then Distress inked the edge of the image and stamped a Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp in the same ink.
Papers are all from a First Edition paper stack (they were left on my table from something else - so I know they are First Edition but I can't remember which pad!).
Sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set.
Numbers and paper string from my stuff.
Punched the edge of the card that I mounted the stripy paper on (will go check which punch).
Hope everyone had a happy Christmas and there were some wonderful things in your stockings!
See you soon,
