Happy Christmas Mum

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a great Christmas Day.  We were very lucky in our household and Santa brought lots of lovely pressies.  Hubby bought me a new coat and some perfume that I wanted and I got some lovely crafty bits from my Mum.  But my best moment was when my youngest daughter was given her main pressie from hubby and me.  She had asked for an ipad mini and we agreed that we would give her some money towards one.  But we decided to actually buy her one and when she opened the present she cried and then I cried.  She could not believe that we had gone and bought her one.  She was so grateful and it was a very special moment for us all.  

Anyway I just wanted to pop by and share my Mum's christmas card that I made for her.  I could not post it before as my Mum is into crafting too and regularly checks my blog.

I created a christmas wreath using my Spellbinders poinsettia die and some holly and mistletoe die cuts.  I have had the die cuts a couple of years at least.  I think they came from Create and Craft originally.  The wreath was mounted onto Centura Pearl cardstock and then onto gold mirror card.  The corners are also from Spellbinders.  After I had mounted the wreath I sprayed it with some perfect pearls and added some glitter so it looks nice and shimmery and sparkly.  The sentiment was done on the computer and cut out using another of my dies.  A few dazzlers from the Hobby House added to the flowers and the bow finished the card off nicely.

I was really pleased with how it turned out and Mum loved it.  Thanks for popping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

This is such a stylish card Mags. The perfect pearls give it that magical festive frosty look. I am pleased that your Mum liked it. As your mum is a keen crafter I expect most of it will be recycled or turned into a Christmas wreath she can treasure forever.
Thank you for entering our Christmas challenge at Penny Black and More this month and we hope you will join us again in January.

Happy Christmas
