Merry Christmas to All My Blogging Friends!

Hello Everyone, well we are almost there, just one more sleep and it's the Big Day. I hope you are all organised. It's been hectic as usual, but I'm up to speed now.

Teallach had me up at 6am this morning, rascal that he is, but I decided to wrap the family presents, and what a rare time we had, Teallach pinched my ribbon, knocked all my bows down and started shuffling them along the carpet. Then next he got hold of the paper and had a bit of a tearing time.
Eventually got all the wrapping finished.

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last makes, it makes it all worthwhile.
I thought I would show my last card of the year, it's the one I made for Alistair;
A little bit of Mr. Darcy here, using MCS Regency Seasons CD, this is actually the first time I've used it. Image, papers and sentiment are all from the CD, MB Snowflake Corner Die, Stickle for a bit of sparkle and pearls and gems from my box.
I have to say he loved it.

I'm going to have a break from Blogging over the next week or so, so I won't be around to comment.
So it just remains to say thank you for all the support, friendship and wonderful inspiration offered, you are a fab bunch of folk, and to wish each and Everyone of You a Very Happy Christmas and a Good New Year that is kind to you and yours, especially to those of you who have had struggles in one way or another this year. It's been very difficult for some of you I know, I'm particularly thinking of Rachel's Shaun, and keeping fingers crossed that he will waken for Christmas to be with is family. Take care of yourselves and see you in 2015'

Hi Kate
Ooooh, love a bit of Mr Darcy myself, well, Colin Firth anyway but I digress. Lovely vintage card.
Thought there would be bauble shinanighans at an indecent hour! I bet he will be wrapped around your legs when that bird comes out of the oven (I do mean Teallach for the sake of clarity lol!)
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas my dear friend and see you after your break.

awww Kate - thanks for your special mention - Shaun is indeed more awake but not being able to move or speak is making him quite frustrated though - we'll get there though! I hope you had a really wonderful Christmas! Your card for Alistair is beautiful! Big hugs rachel xx
