Time to start on my Christmas Cards

Well the time has come for me to start making my own Christmas Cards. Have made some as DT projects for Tonic but this is MY first.

I have to make confession I started making this card last year and it got left in a box. This year I`ve added the lovely robin. He`s from a stamp made by Hobby Art and I think he`s sooo cute. He`s coloured using promarkers. There is an embossed wreath in the background which isn`t showing very well on the photo

It`s been such a busy time over the past few weeks in the Whelan household I`ve hardly had time to breathe. My Son decided a week before the start of the University term that he wanted to do a full time course in Newport University as well as the part time course he was already registered for. He was so lucky to get accepted. So then he decided he was going to move to Cardiff. Thankfully we didn`t have to look around for accommodation as there was a free place in his friend`s house. I think he`d planned all this beforehand, hmmmm.

Dad has had a spell in hospital but is now recovering slowly.

My knee is well on the way to recovery after my little fall in the garden centre.

Tonic has kept me very busy with all the new launches, which I`ve loved preparing for.

Can`t believe I`ve written such a long post. This must be a record. I`m going away for the weekend with my husband to chill out and have some time for us, which has been very minimal of late.

Catch you after the weekend
