How cute

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me. Yes today is a special day as it is my Birthday and I'm heading off to Heathrow at lunchtime for an overnight stay in a hotel ready to fly out to Washington DC on Saturday. Of course it is also special as it is time for another Winter Wonderland challenge and this week the lovely Danielle quite rightly reminds us that Jesus is the reason for the season. Lili of the Valley have some gorgeous nativity stamps out this year and this is one of them. I used a new eyelet nestie to cut a silver circle and threaded through some turquoise lace to match the aqua papers, which are Papermania. I added a heart doily which was chalked to take down the whiteness and used my MS heart border punch on the diamond paper. Lots of glitter on the angel's wings, a gold star sentiment and some pearls to finish.
