My First Christmas Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hope you are enjoying your weekend, it was a miserable day here in Kent yesterday and I am feeling quite yucky so I spent most of it snoozing on the sofa and generally not doing much!  I did find my way into my craft room for a little while and thought I best make a Christmas card as I haven't done any yet!  Pressure off this year though I intend buying them and just making just a few very special ones!   I refuse to feel guilty about it so that's that!

 Poor Jamie is really suffering with a chest infection that does not seem to want to go and really rough cold and now on top of it all he has got a stomach bug so I am really worried about him, being so far away I can't do anything much about it! He has been to the doctors so I really hope he will soon start to improve.  Poor Max (the dog) was sick yesterday as well and I think I have something lurking, me no likey!!!!!!

I have a non traditional Christmas card to share today with a gorgeous image from Mo and I got my flowers and lace on there too!!!!

I have to get this image! I just love Mo's work! she's gorgeous - and we don't have to feel guilty for buying cards (I got some yesterday too), there's just some people who cannot appreciate the time, effort and love put into a handmade card and thus don't deserve them :)
