winter wishes ....... kisses

well at last i have had some crafting time this week ~oh had a play with some magnolia stamps and lots and lots of glitter!!!
this xmas card is for lewis`s teacher ~who is very sweet and i must say looks very young ~but lewis has really settled in to year 2, long may it continue!!

for this card i used the sketch on TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS#42 ~ SNOWFLAKES
THE CRAFTY PAD #90 ~ "CHRISTMAS SPARKLE" ~ glittered everything
CHARISMA CARDZ#39 ~ "CHRISTMAS CRAFTING" ..... all links to your left

used some fab snowflake paper at the back of my 12x12 paper cupboard ~but have covered it up!! (why does that always happen??) some much neglected magnolia stamps, popcorn the bear wording, sizzix snowflakes, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and lots and lots of glitter.

thought i would show the opening of the card ~as got the fold in the wrong place for the sketch~but works well ~still time to work on the inside, have used more of the snowflake paper.
better get some house work done ~so behind with everything ~ been to look at another new school for aaron, (fingers crossed and prayers our way would be fantastic) so forms to fill in etc, had hospital appiontments as well...just go , go go a mums work never done???
