Hello there,
I trust you had a lovely Christmas Day.. I had a very quiet one here, which was good.. Just a few more days and we will have to put the new calendars up... and probably hang on to our hats in 2020!!

I have been pottering around and managed to create this layout for the December Challenge for
WHATS IN THE BICKIE TIN which is to use Green, ribbon and bling..

and my layout..
some closer views..

The bling is a Kaisercraft flourish which I cut in half to suit where I wanted to put it..

I have used green and used some satin ribbon which I created a bow with.. The daisy's are stickers that I have had for ages!!


My DD with her cat Orva.. I love this photo!!

Thanks so much for dropping by, the days have been busy but I hope you have had time to create.
And thanks for all the support I have received this year for my little blog.. and also for all the comments that you leave me to read too..

And if I dont get back before the new year....
Have a Happy New Year, and I hope 2020 is a good year for us all..

Hello there,
How is your day going? My word the days are flying by and soon we will be warming the Christmas pud and cutting up the ham...  a time for family and remembrance and gratitude for all the blessings that have been mine this year... and of course remembering the reason for the season which is the birth of my Saviour Jesus..

but first I must put up the challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG at the Show and Tell Facebook page which is one I really loved..  and it is..

 To use the sketch, the two words or be inspired by the words and the 3 colors as the main colors..

I used a photo of my 3 DD's for this layout..

some closer views..

I have used the two words in my journalling..
