Xmas Treat !


Well it's half term this week, so i'm not sure how much i will be around, as i'm planning on taking H out on a couple of days out - starting with today, we went to see 'The Chris and Pui Roadshow' (CBBeebies presenters), tomorrow H is going to the local leisure centre for pancake making and swimming, Wednesday is a haircut, decorating t-shirt and crowns for our local village's Childrens Parade in May !!!

For a change i've made an oval easel card, but i thought this was the best shape for the image - which is just so adorable and so reminds me of Whisper (my pooch)!!, the papers are from American Crafts, that i have not previously cut into, i also liked the idea of the stocking charm.
