December the 25th




Must get a move on with my Christmas cards I have been slow at getting down to them this year. one done today.
Thank you for all the kind comments left by those that follow my blog, I really appreciate them.

I had a day in Aberdeen on Friday shopping then a movie then dinner with my elder son. I had a lovely day the film was based on the book  Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes, and was a rel weepy the tears were streaming down my face near the end. The cinema was very quiet at the  13.15 showing but not a dry eye in the house.

Awww this is so adorable Meg… such a cute image and I love how his banner is out of the circle.. the doily is very pretty with the embossing! :-)
glad you had a nice day out in Aberdeen… shopping then a movie sounds lovely. I've read one of Jo Jo Moyes books ages ago which I enjoyed… but will look out for this film…. and will have the tissues ready! Hope you're having a great weekend!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

I'm so behind on my Christmas cards this year, that's unusual for me. Oh well, I'll get to it after my summer holidays. The white snowy background looks pretty and makes it all extra wintery, love how you arranged the sentiment with the ribbon.

I really like your card Meg. I like using lots of white and with the embossing folder, doily die and white die cut base, you've used layers that make your card very interesting. And who couldn't love the little House Mouse. Thanks for entering the Sparkles Christmas Challenge.
