Shaping up

This week at Winter Wonderland we would like to see card shapes - anything but square and rectangle. This is perfect for these lovely round woodware blank cards. I have gone for a flat simple look just because I need some cards that will post easily! The papers are papermania, the sentiment dovecraft and the image is of course House Mouse. Last week I read my first Christmas story to my Niece after we had made reindeer food. The book was called why the reindeer were chosen. When My own children were small I bought a book each year depending on their age so now I have quite a collection of Christmas stories especially based on the nativity. Anyway back to the tale - it was lovely seeing her little face light up at each magical detail she learned - Children are wonderful for that. By the end I was quite emotional, soppy beggar I know but the magic still hits me too!
Hope this Christmas is beginning to feel magical to you. This Sunday is the first day of advent so the countdown is really here. Countless children (and some adults I know) will be opening their first door on the advent calendar next Wednesday - the season is really here - Fabulous if you have played along with us this year as you will feel ready for the Christmas card sending and if you havent make a few this week we would love to see them x
Stop by Winter Wonderland where my team mates have got their magical cards waiting to show you x We have a fab sponsor too!
With Love x Janet
