Warm Winter Wishes

Thought the title was quite appropriate from a dark, damp and dreary North East of England.  It’s been a yuk weekend so far, not that I am bothered as I am flat out with DT work, never went across the doors yesterday and instead played in my craft room all day.

I’m back to me pastels again and I think this card could work for “babies first Christmas”.  I’ve used the Lili of the Valley paper pads (neither are Christmas but I thought the papers in the Bonnets & Bowties and Petal Fresh pads worked for this card).  The stamp is Teddy with Robin and the sentiment is from the Christmas Handwritten Phrases set.



I will be back at 5 with a card for the Whimsy Stamps blog hop, and in the meantime I have a roast beef dinner and strawberry pavlova to prepare for family and my most fave friend.

    I hope you are looking forward to your lovely meal with family and friend, it sounds great.
    I adore your card, it is bright and cheery but still softly pastel and as you say, very suitable for a new baby Christmas.
    I hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend.
