I have made this card for my friends little girl who is 2. My friend Natalie came round on Wednesday and we exchanged Christmas gifts! Natty got me 3 gorgeous new Tildas!! I used one straight away on this card. Its not a Christmas Tilda but I thought it would be OK. Not very Christmassy colours either but there you go. I am sure little Martha will like it!
Martha's name has been stamped straight onto the paper with my new set, Schoolbook Serif alphabet!! Love it already!!

On Thursday and Friday my little boy appeared in his annual school production. This Year it was The Toymakers Workshop and Evan was a Jack in the Box. He was desperate to play that part so was really chuffed when he got picked!!!!
It was very cute although he struggled getting in and out of his box a few times as it was very high!!!
Here he is in his dungarees, how cute!!! I was a very proud Mummy, he sang his heart out!!!
I have got in early with my card this week, made it yesterday morning but was raining so couldn't take a picture outside all day!
This card has been made for a lovely lady who is doing me a huge favour!!!! I wanted to express my sincere thanks to her!
Hope you like the card and I hope the recipient does!

We have also had a lot of snow!!!!!! My boys school was closed yesterday so Evan had a little play outside, whilst my eldest had to stay in as he is poorly!!
