Christmas Is Coming!

Not the best photo in the world as the sun was shining in the wrong direction. I should have taken the photo this morning when the light was better. Ho hum.

I made this card using my Forever Friends Christmas papers and as luck would have it, it qualifies for this week's Forever Friends Challenge.

I used the sheets to make a decoupaged image of the bear and then used the off cuts to make the squares. I think it's turned out really cute.

We had Ellie's parents evening on Wednesday. She got a glowing report and is doing fabulously well. She's only 6 and has a reading age of a 9 year old and a spelling age of 8. Her teacher says that Ellie is always keen and enthusiastic and tries hard at everything. We came away very proud of her. Josh has his parents evening next Thursday, fingers crossed that his is as glowing.

That is a sweet card Fe. Good on Ellie, she sounds like a little star.

I hope Josh's evening goes well too.
