Saturday before Christmas....


Time is marching on towards Christmas hope you are all ok. Claire and I would like to say a huge thank you for all your support and get well wishes for baby Isabella. She is now on the mend thank goodness. She had her first solid food in over a week yesterday and is starting to take more milk. So a big hug to you for your caring words we really appreciated them.

My card today is another Christmas card. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. I have masked Tilda in front of this sweet fence. The background is distressed with vintage photo. I have also used vintage photo to distress my paper edges and snowflakes. The snowflakes are quickutz dies and a martha stewart punch. The sentiment was sent to me by the fabulous Tab thank you so much sweetie I love it!

Thank you so much for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
