Christmas 2014

Hello everyone and I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and enjoyed some special time with your loved ones. We certainly did, Christmas lived up to all the anticipation and was such a special family time. I wanted to share a couple of photos of the big day. My handmade crackers looked great on the table. Here it is set up and waiting for everyone to arrive.

Daisy was such a good girl that Santa came and left a stack of presents....
 and my 2 "babies" (of 25 and 28) had obviously been good as Santa filled their sacks and stockings too and did not knock over my shadow box as he came down the chimney.
We did laugh at the crackers jokes as we sat around the dinner table and in the evening when we played charades our laughter got so loud that we almost woke up Daisy...oops!

Daisy's Mummy and Daddy bought her a fabulous shopping trolley which means she can now carry things around when she is trying to walk. I did try to take a photo but she just kept racing with it and they are all blurred. This really sums her up and makes me about a trolley dash

I think I must have been a good girl to as not only did I get some gorgeous clothes, crafting goodies and other wonderful gifts but this was in my stocking from my darling Hb.

When I opened the box I found my very own fairy godmother charm
 She's very hard to photograph but here she is

 and the thing which may me blub like a kid was the wonderful inscription on the back...

Oh M she is just perfect, thank you so much.

I hope Santa was good to you all too ;0)
My card today is something that is inspired by my magical charm

I blended  my Distress inks to make the background. I stamped using picket fence distress stain on a flower stamp and finally some archival ink to add some daisies to create lots of layers. I also distressed the edge and added some walnut stain distress ink. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley which I added embossing glitter to. The die cuts are all Cheery Lynn.

I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges;

A little bit crafty anything goes but not Christmas
All craft challenge anything goes but no cards
Winter Wonderland fussy and fancy
Sweet stampin anything goes

Back soon with my 5 favourite Christmas creations of 2014, Debby of a scrapbooking journey is running this pop on over and join the fun.

I hope some of you have some time off to enjoy more of the holiday season. It's fast approaching the end of the year...a real gallop now,

Bye for now,

  11. I've very nearly caught up on my blog reading Jane! I love that you still do a sack and stocking for your two, as well as Daisy, we made my poor Mum lay ours out until we were mid teens and then she refused. I have a giant stocking that I was going to put out for a laugh at my sister's (but I was worried the boys would get confused when it was still empty in the morning, as they still both believe) in the hope it might get filled ;) I love all the colour co-ordination going on, you do Christmas so very well.
