A Mulberry Wood Christmas card

oh I do love this CD the backing papers are stunning and the characters so cute.......

Going to the river today to mingle my Mum and Dads ashes and they are going swimming together on their wedding anniversary....I wondered why she wanted to be cremated in her swim suit it was so she  was ready for her swim with Dad....soppy or what.....oh I do miss her!

getting on with some Christmas cards...

Having a great time playing in my room with all my new goodies

this is an old creative expressions stamp I found in my draw...used the snow flakes to make an embossed background...embossed the tree and glittered it up...used a justrite Christmas miracle ornament..stamped and embossed and glittered for the tag...white crushed organza ribbon.....and was pleased with the result
Hope you are all well in this cold and dank ...heating just gone on!
