Good morning everyone. As you have probably guessed if you've been looking at my blog over the past couple of weeks, I have been having the classic "last minute panic" and making some quick Christmas cards in batches ... and yesterday I had another little session. However I also spent most of the day making a couple of "special" cards for my mum & dad and for my husband's aunt (his closest relative) - it was nice to get back into my usual comfort zone of "more is more"! :-) Here is a C5 card I made for my mum & dad.
I love to put a lot of effort into my parents' cards, cos my mum especially really loves to see what I make. I really hope they will like these adorable penguins,
