Soft and Subtle Easter Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Spring has sprung, we have sunny weather here in North Texas, and here we are in Easter Week. My card uses the ‘soon to retire’ Gift of Hope Stamp Set, with its peaceful church and dainty floral garland.

I associated Easter colors with green and purple, I don’t know why that would be but they just work for me so Highland Heather and Soft Seafoam feature in today’s card.

Advent Calendar – Christmas Eve!

The final day for our calendar, it is hard to believe it is Christmas Eve,  I am going to spend the day listening to Christmas music on BBC Radio 2 and getting ready for tomorrow.  I sometimes think I enjoy Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day itself – there is more of a sense of magic and anticipation!

Back in October, when  my friend, Elly, from the UK and I designed the  advent calendar using a 24 cup mini muffin pan, we had a lot of fun deciding which square would go on each day but I knew we would have this square for today!

I hope you have enjoyed the countdown journey – I certainly enjoyed sharing with you ~ leave me a comment I would love to hear from you.

You will want to open each post, as there will be a little treat behind each one!  Some days it might be some virtual ‘candy’ or sweeties as we call them in the UK, other times it might be a card, 3D project or a video!

Advent Calendar – Countdown to Christmas ~ Day 23

When Elly, my friend from the UK, and I designed the advent calendar back in early October I wanted day 23 to show the warmth and coziness of creating a new home.   December 23rd is a special day in our family as it is our youngest son’s wedding anniversary – yep 2 days before Christmas – it was a magical day full of love and sparkle and Father Christmas (as he is known in the UK)  came to hand out the wedding favors!
