Happy Christmas Dear Daughter

Evening Folks
Thursday already, this week is flying by.  I'm getting quite excited now as we are going to Manchester this weekend to stay with our youngest daughter who is attending University there.  My eldest daughter and her fiance are also going with us so it will be a real family occasion.  Planning on doing some christmas shopping and will be visiting the traditional christmas market that they have up there.  Can't wait to get my hands on some yummy hot spiced cider.  My daughter assures me it is yummy.

Anyway, I am well on my way with christmas cards and have now started making the more personal ones.  This one is for my youngest daughter (she doesn't look at my blog so I am safe posting it here).

I used this gorgeous image from Wild Rose Studio.  It is one of their precoloured panels and so adorable.  Best of all no colouring to muck up lol.  I used silver mirror card for all the matting and the papers were from various christmas paper packs that I have.  I just love the wooden snowflake that I lovingly attacked with stardust stickles.  I also added some stickles to the flowers at the bottom.  I finished the card with some ribbon and a bow, large pearl embellishment and some card candi in the corners.  The sentiment was done on the computer.

Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely comments you leave.  It is so appreciated.

Hi Mags
Great card, I love the Wild Rose Studio image, lovely layout too.
Have fun in my home town, the Christmas market this year is the largest yet, goes all over town and yes the mulled wine/cider/bailey's hot chocolate are wonderful.
