Heidi - My Crafty Heart DT

For today's card I've used a very pretty Whimsy stamp, and some gorgeous First Edition 'Isabelle' papers.  These aren't actually Christmas papers, but I think they work really well for girly Christmas cards - lovely colours and a lot of the sheets are sparkly :o)

Oh, and just in case you think I'm going a bit loopy... I do realise I've only got sons lol!  This is one that my friend's ordered...

Thank you all for your lovely comments and messages about Morgan's 'incident' at school.  The meeting was fine, the 'helper' is actually a student teacher and has been temporarily suspended while the school completes their investigation.  Morgan is fine - just a bit worried about all the fuss he thinks he's caused!  But they called him in after our meeting to reassure him that he did the right thing reporting it... I'm happy with how they're dealing with it anyway.

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Hi Lisa, OMW she is totally gorgeous, I love those soft colours you have chosen, she looks amazing :) What a great Christmas card for a Daughter and love how you teamed her with peach too, so beautiful....I am glad the School is taking this all seriously and OMW, I didn't realise it was a student teacher...I assumed it was another child who was helping.
