1st Card of the Day!!!

Winter Wonderland - Home for the Holidays!
Fabs Christmas Card Challenge- Card from a Kit
Simon says - Christmas in August
Magical Crafts Forum - Magical Christmas!

Think I have managed to combine all the above challenges into this 1 card. The kit is the Personal Shopper from HOTP where you get all the elements and pop them onto the card. I have jazzed it up a bit with Silver Star and Glaze Sakura also a wee bit of glitter for the berries.
It is so Magical to see the kids hanging up their stockings on Christmas Eve in anticipation of Santa coming. Jake is too old for it now but Tom still believes! I love that!
Off to complete another card so hope to be back later with it. I managed to take Tom to school on my own today so Gold Star to me!!! I didn't manage to go in to the Worry Woman's Place though and panicked but I have to think Well I managed to do the Tom thing!!!
Anyway off for some lunch now.Yummy home made pizza I think, then at night having loads of veg from my Uncles Allotment as he brought 4 shopping bags full to me earlier so I have rhubarb, tatties, carrots, runner beans, broad beans, cabbage and cauliflower!!! Yummy, nothing quite like home grown
