Time with Luca

Hello there, I am here today with a Christmas card!!  Like it or not it is coming round very fast. I have used everything Eleanor again it is a fab set very versatile.
Now I have to admit that i made this card back in August when Moira my French demo friend visited me. We had a fun weekend together and made quite a few cards with this set. Now I will tell you straight away that the sentiment (hristmas part) is retired now but the sentiment from the Contempo Christmas will work just as well. I just didn‘t get round to changing it. The combo is Baja Breeze, River Rock and Cherry Cobbler.
The frame was stamped straight onto my river rock layer and the C monogram from the Broadsheet alpha was stamped on vanilla and punched out with the 13/4” circle punch.
The rest of the words was stamped on a banner and pieced together with the monogram for a different look. The bird from the same set was stamped in espresso ink and cut out.
Glass glitter, delicate lace trim, pearls and an and antique brad  provide plenty to look at and give a pretty and slightly vintage feel to this card I feel.
I need to step up my Christmas card making a bit although I am soo much ahead than other years thanks to my Christmas Club. I have quite a few ready.
now this week was wonderful so far as is half term and Luca and my sis have been here since last Saturday. To say I loved every minute of it is a slight understatement is been fabulous and I needed the break as well. we went out and about every day but Tuesday we had the best day. We spent it the the fabulous Farmers Cart near York and we all had a fab day.

We laughed so much going through the spooky corn maze, Luca was terrified bless him and I laugh every time I see this picture, I had to zoom in so you can see his face, I love this little guy so much.
