Dreaming of a White Christmas


This seemed an appropriate card to share with you on Christmas Eve. I love Christmas Eve, it always has a magical feel to it. As usual I'm sure we won't have a white Christmas but a sharp frost later tonight and in the morning would be lovely, however it looks like being mild which isn't Christmassy at all. It is the first time I have tried colouring skin grey, really liking the colour combo.

We will be visiting my Mum this afternoon and then bringing her back to Norwich for a meal and settling her into a nearby Premier Inn for a couple of nights. In the morning hubby will be collecting her to spend the day at our house. It is the first time we have spent Christmas Day together since I got married so really looking forward to it.

Beautiful card, love Christmas Eve too but ours is thunder, and a bit of rain and humidity. A white Christmas is a big dream of mine. Have a Blessed Christmas to you both.xx

Fabulous card Marianne.
It is pretty chilly down here but very damp - so not very Christmassy weather-wise.
Hope you have a lovely time with your Mum.
Merry Christmas
