I hope you are all well. Like many of you, I have really enjoyed watching the Olympics this weekend. The GB team have done us proud.
Yesterday I made my first Christmas card of this year - at last! I had all good intentions to start much earlier in the year but just didn't get round to it. I have to admit that I do love making Christmas cards though, I love the colours and the sparkle.
So to start me off I choose one of my favourite Christmas stamps and you may have guessed .. it's by Lili of the Valley. No surprise I'm sure as you know I love all of their images. Also, I couldn't wait to use my new Memory Box die too!
I added loads of glamour dust to the snowflakes, it's a shame you can't see how sparkly it looks on the photo.
