Merry Christmas Everyone

Good morning everyone, I'm popping in today with a few things, firstly I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014! And, I have recently hit 1000 followers, thank you! I really do appreciate everyone's support and encouragement. I am currently getting some candy together to celebrate reaching 1000 followers, so keep checking......

I'm sorry my blog has been quiet lately, but I have been very busy behind the scenes.

Over the Christmas period the Ribbon Girl are having a special challenge, it's for children 16 or under to enter, as soon as I told Grace she said she wanted to enter and make something other than a card. Yesterday morning we had some crafty time in our new craft room, and Grace made this;

She has used Tree Topper from Saturated Canary, I always have to print or stamp her the same images as me, I love sat colouring with her. We picked the bag up at the Lili Of The Valley shop when we visited recently, the rest of her embellies were a gift to her of Mary and Andrea. She loved making this, and seeing it with her watermark on has really made her smile.

Hope you all have a wonderful time,

Big hugs,

Grace and Becky xx
