wish upon a star~ xmas card 4

yes i am afraid so xmas card number 4 (sorry such a bad photo). used the great sketch from just christmas and birthday cards, and decided to follow the challenge over on ABC ~ Y ~YESTERYEAR ~use one of your first stamps. well i think a bang on the door foam stamp set may have been some of the first stamps i went out to buy over 3 years ago. (anyway seem to have had them years!!)
used english paper company papers, bang on the door angel stamp, oval nestabilities, see d`s word, star and wand stamps, ribbon and gems from stash.

lewis has been named the "special person" at school this friday, for a week, so had bought home leo the lion to look after ~we have to keep a dairy of what they do together!! should be fun!!!

last night leo wanted chips and cheese for his tea ~luckly lewis had something a little more healthy ~did anyone notice the lovely pen drawing behind lewis on his toy box ~yes lewis decided on tuesday it need decorating ~no amount of scrubbing or even sanding down will get rid of it!! any ideas??? maybe a trip to B&Q for some paint then!!

hope you enjoy your weekend ~lewis and leo are now playing the wii together!! ~going to be a long week!! ha ha byeeeeeeeeeee for now xx

Another Christmas card....gonna have to pull my finger out to catch up with you!! It's great Vanessa and can't wait to meet Leo tomorrow!

Hi Vanessa, another great Christmas card, I have these little foam stamps too, in fact I forgot I have foam stamps until I was reminded by your's, I have a box of them somewhere. Lewis must be taking his artistic side from his mummy, have fun with your little visitor this weekend, maybe Leo and Lewis can do some more decorating lol. Donna x

Oh, Vanessa, Lewis and Leo are soo cute together!! My sons have also brought home some stuffed animals and had to write about the things they did together. It's a fun way to make them write :) I don't think I ever took pictures of them together with the stuffed animal (it was a bear in our case). Now that I see Lewis and Leo together I really regret that I didn't take any pictures. It would have been a great memory for the boys :)

Your card is beautiful as always. Love that you haven't used typical christmas colours. Thanks for joining this weeks challenge over at JCBC.

And your music is great. I normally have the sound turned off on my computer, but now it happened to be turned on and I love your music choice :) Especially all the songs by Michael Bublé. I love his voice!

Have a great week-end, Vanessa!

Hugs, Kristin :)

A really sweet Christmas card. I'd promised myself to do one christmas card per week in 2009 - I've only made 1 so far! Love those stamps. Aww, Lewis is indulging his artistic side, bless him. Have fun with Lewis and Leo this week - that's a lovely idea to keep a diary of their antics.
