Happy Christmas!!

Good morning Thursday.

Oh My Goodness - woke up this morning and the sun was starting to break through. What a wonderful surprise although it does mean catching up on my washing and less crafting time. But gotta make the most of a lovely day now that they will be few and far between. Not a lot else happening here apart from Phoebe is now getting settled in school and doesn't cry when I leave anymore. It's heart-breaking walking away from a crying child.

So onto today's card. Now that we are getting closer and closer to christmas I am making more and more and I do love them. There is nothing like a handmade card to tell someone they are special. This card is for 4 challenges - I used the sketch over at Just Magnolia, added a lot of glitter and bling (although it's difficult to see since I scan my cards but there is a lot on the wings and baubles and the paper is covered in gold writing) to fit in with the challenges for Crazy 4 Challenges and Totally Tilda and the christmas Theme is for Totally Gorjuss. The sentiment is in danish and basically means "Good Christmas". I stamped with Versamark and embossed.

I hope you like my card, I do think Magnolia make the most adorable images for christmas time.
