Warm & Merry


Well i had a bitter sweet weekend - my best friend and daughter were over from Australia and we met up at, of all places 'Legoland' (i think it was more to keep H entertained !!!) and it was so great to see her, but yet so hard when they left, as we don't know when we will see each other again, as she has said she is never coming back to the UK (mind you i don't blame her).

Today's image is using a stamp that i purchased in a sale a couple of months ago and thought is what a sweetie and i've cut it out with Spellbinders - 'Label 8', the papers are LOTV - 'Classic Christmas' (that i bought when i visited the LOTV shop and met up with (Susan), the snowflake is Spellbinders - 'Snowflake Wonder', the banner is from 'Whiff Of Joy', the punched section through the middle is Martha Stewart - 'Deep Edge Snowflake'

Such an adorable card! Glad you got a chance to see your friend. I complain that my gal pal is an hour away- clearly nothing to complain about when compared to how far away your friend is!
