Christmas Baby's 14th

This was made at top speed 8 a.m. Christmas Eve for my daughter's 14th - come to think of it, she was born at 8 a.m.!  Sorry for the poor light.

Baby it's cold outside...

So we might as well stay cosy inside and make cards!

Made with Papermania Silent Night papercrafting range.  The flower is made by cutting wonky circles out of paper - inspired by Kristina Werner, check out her fabulous blog. 

After I took the photo I rounded the corners (and went round the corner with the white gel pen obviously)  but by then the daylight was gone so you'll just have to imagine that!

Anyone fed up of snow yet? Not me! It's beautiful!
