We had a wonderful sweet Christmas nice and cozy with family and friends....Molly had a wonderful birthday Christmas Day although so many presents in one day is still overwhelming for her.....lots of cake was eaten, she had a skating reindeer chocolate cake courtesy of Marks and Spencer...YUM!

We have a busy few days coming up with friends and family visiting over and into the New Year....then back to school on Jan 5th!

What about you? Have a good one wherever you may be!!

do not open until Christmas......

I made these cute little mini gift card/money holders which are now hanging on the Christmas tree for Molly and Megan.....everything looks so much more cute in miniature! I added some of Regina's Christmas mini words and Christmas Gift Tags from the Cutting Cafe and Christmas in a square along with sentiment from Scrappymoms - Simple Sentiments, Echo Park stickers and papers and some Cosmo Cricket!

Hubby is out to a Christmas lunch with his Cycling club and then he's off to football so I'm on my own with the girls, I think will be well enough to go back to school tomorrow
for the last week before they break up for Christmas.....I hope so as I've been stuck in for 2 weeks and need to get lots done before the big guy comes!! ;) The girls got letters from Santa during the week so they are soooo excited!!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend....are you ready for SC?

Deck the Halls!!!

Have you done yours? We're abit late this year as the girls are sick but we managed to do it last Friday....I think I'm done now for this year! Hubby did the outside lights yesterday....he was home for the day as I had to take Megan to hospital, she had laboured breathing and a chest infection poor honey, she was admitted to hospital this time last year with breathing problems so I was worried but we are home and she is recovering with some meds. Most of my Christmas shopping has been done online this year which has made things alot easier.

I managed to squeeze in some craft time....yay!
I can't stop making these ribbon sliders you can make them longer like this and put chocolate bars in or Hot Cocoa or any sweet treat....I made mine up as I went along but there are plenty of tutorials out there here's one I found here. Papers and the stocking were freebies in my stash and the snowman and mug are from Nancy Kubo - Happy Holiday.
Here's a card I did for a male friend.....I really struggle with male cards, this one is clean and simple looking. I used a Scrappymoms stamp from Simple Sentiments.
This little card I made using Zoe Pearn and Jenn Barrette's - Thankful for you kit...I don't know why I did a tree but this is what came to me at that time.....stamp from Scrappymoms - Simple Sentiments.
Well that's all for today....keep warm wherever you are, it's really cold here in the UK. My grocery shop just arrived so I'm off to put it all away and grab a bite!

It's cold here but no white fluffy stuff for me....I think we are the only corner of the UK not had any snow :( some people I know have had 17 inches!!!

I have been looking after 2 poorly girls this week...Molly with Tonsillitis and Megan with Chicken Pox and Molly hasn't had it yet so I think she will get that next...poor honey! They are with me cozy and warm.....just what I love :). Today Molly ate something and believe me there is nothing of her already without having no food for 2 days....all she wanted was pancakes so that is just what I made her and it was so nice to see her eat something and smile again.
Anyway I was after some really quick cards and here's what I came up with. The 1st 4 little cards using Echo Park - Everybody Loves Christmas (I did take individual close ups but my camera must have been on the wrong setting as they didn't come out! The second Snowman card I used a Melissa Frances sticker and The Cutting Cafe Mini Word digital stamp.
That's all for tonight....keep warm, hugs ;) xx
