And So This is Christmas!!!

I cannot believe that Christmas is already over for another year! It goes too fast!!!

My family and I had a wonderful Christmas Day full of good company, yummy food, and a sleigh-full of great presents. I sincerely hope that you too had a wondeful festive season!

Christmas morning, after all the presents were done, I gave Oliver and Matilda the Christmas cards that I had made for them. When Tilly opened hers, she said, "Oh Mum, this is really beautiful!" Isn't she the sweetest?! For her I made an easel card using patterned papers and rub-ons from the Eskimo Kisses line by BG, Thickers and tiny alphas (by Carolee's), and rhinestones.

For Ollie, I made a photo card. I used a photo of him in his Christmas outfit that I took at Matilda's daycare Christmas party, and placed it inside a Cosmo Cricket chipboard bauble shape. The paper I used for this card is from Bo Bunny's Tis the Season collection.


















Last night, I took down the tree, then found some time to sit at my desk to create. I have been wanting to make a card using Wild Cards from October Afternoon for some time now, and last night I finally got the chance!!! This is what I came up with...


















Next on my list is a layout that I have been asked to do for Scrapbook Creations. I have already got my photos and papers picked out... now all I need is to rustle up some courage and get started!!! LOL!

That's it for me for today. Going now to go feel sorry for myself... it's so so so hot here in Perth!!! Grumble grumble! I hate summer!!! LOL!
