snowy family christmas


I've had this cute Penny Black stamp for a couple of weeks now and have been itching to make a card with it. I've coloured the image using Whisper pens and H20's, then added lots of Stickles glitter glue. The papers are Dovecraft as is the snowflake brad. Sentiment was printed from my computer, ribbon/braid from my stash.
Well how are you all enjoying the kiddies being back at school.........back to routine and early mornings, dashing here, there and everywhere. I seem to be always in the car, taking one of my lot somewhere, I feel like a tornado....lol!!!! Today was Georgia and Yasmin's first day in their new school, Georgia was great but as for Yasmin she cried and cried and would not let go of me. It was heartbreaking as the teacher took her to the class. I have butterflies in my stomache and can't wait to pick her up, poor little thing she's so sensitive. I'm sure she'll be fine after a few days, I hope.
Thanks for popping by, ttfn
