I have got a week off from work now, going to be quite a busy one though, Christmas shopping to do,  getting the house clean and tidy before the tree and decorations go up, off to the hairdressers this morning to get a trim in readiness of our work Christmas party next weekend - busy, but a nice kinda busy! Have a great week yourselves!

Easel-ly Does it!

Hello....thank you for visiting today....hope you're having a great week, hasn't it turned chilly though, and how can it be that it is now December already. It is Mum's birthday this week, so the Christmas prep has been popped on hold for a couple of days at least.

I had been very excited to see that Lili of the Valley now have many of their amazing stamps available in a digital format, I was still to buy any, but that was until an email about the latest releases dropped into my mailbox and as soon as I saw them, I was smitten.
I went for "a hug in a mug"....I will be back for more though!
Haven't made an easel card for ages, so really enjoyed making this.

My card features:
  • A Hug in a Mug from LOTV
  • coloured with promarkers
  • both dp's Sweet Pea paper collection from Kaisercraft
  • Baby Lexi font
  • lace from local haberdashery
  • wooden embellishments
I would like to enter this into:

Our brand new challenge, Christmas with the Cuties has got off to a fantastic start, and I am absolutely delighted, if you've not popped in for a visit, come on over - we'd love to see you xx
