Our Christmas Day was a peaceful one, with 5 of us for a meal and a visitor later. Probably had far too much to eat and far too much chocolate - and a few glasses of bubbly stuff! A big game of Monopoly in the evening when my daughter's boyfriend proved himself something of a ruthless businessman and bankrupted us all! Then all sprawled out to watch a film together! So, all in all, a typical Christmas day. And now lots of leftovers to eat up, before we start preparations for New Year's Eve - and this year we're having some friends round to celebrate with us as I have to confess that my birthday is also on Dec 31st and this year is a 'significant' one. I finally reach the big '50'! So my friends have convinced me that we should mark the occasion by having a little celebration. I'll let you know how it goes!
A little card to share with you today (after all that waffle!) - a friend wanted a 'good luck' card, with a fairly simple design
I've used papers from LOTV, and also a LOTV sentiment stamp. The panel edges were die cut with a Joanna Sheen 'signature' die, and the butterfly flourish die is also from Joanna Sheen. I've cut the butterflies twice so I could layer them up with some pearls from stash.
And just a quick pic to share with you of my two babies on Christmas morning
Even though it looks like Jack is stood on a box! He's 15 now and 5'11" tall - and is so pleased to be able to tower over the rest of us! And my clever daughter Lauren just found out on the night before Christmas eve that she has got a place at University of Brighton to study for a PGCE after she finishes her degree next summer, so that she can be a primary school teacher. And I know she'll be just brilliant at it! But boy, am I going to miss her when she moves away :(
Anyway, enough waffling from me. I hope that you enjoy a peaceful weekend.
