As a real Mrs Christmas I wanted to share a few photos of some of my Christmas excitement in the run up to the Big Day.
It involves a certain man in a red suit helping Stick Man get home to his Family Tree
I bought a pewter robin spoon to serve my cranberry sauce at the Winchester Christmas market.
Oops he seems to have vanished
I have a delicious smelling wreath on my front door, also bought at Winchester
and one for my studio, although it is shut up for the winter now.
My vintage advent calendar nearly has every window open
and Billy is keeping an eye out for Santa.
And there is great excitement to see parcels appearing under the tree.
Of course my greatest excitement of Christmas this year is Darling Daisy and my daughter sent these photos yesterday which really made me grin...look at her in her little bath tub
My card today is one I made using my favourite accordion die
I used a cute Meljen digi stamp which I coloured with Promarkers and highlighed with Prismacolor pencils. My dies are Cheery Lynn, Marianne and Memory Box
The sentiment is computer generated and you can see my lovely Cheery Lynn holly leaves feature in green, gold and white card. I have also used Frantage for some snowy bling.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Enjoy the last days of all the excitement of this wonderful time of the year.
