Beary Christmas

Good afternoon

Hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend.  I had a great time at the Christmas party on Saturday night.  We didn't get to sleep until after 4 am because we were chatting in our room so I was very tired yesterday. 

My mum is coming over tomorrow with my nan to watch Jamie's school nativity so I have just finished her Christmas card.  I was going to make her an 8 x 8 card but I find this size a little too big so decided to make a 7 x 7 instead so it looked a little bit more special than my normal 6 x 6.

Now going to have a quick tidy up and then sort out the Christmas decorations because i'm hoping to get the tree up tonight :-)

Hi Lisa

How I used to love the childrens school nativities, all those lovely moments when they forget their words and prompts, makes them so special.

A lovely creation here, beautiful colours.
