It all starts today

This is the start of Christmas for us.
Today I have some cakes to make (just realised I have A LOT of cakes to make... hope I have Baileys in lol) then tonight when Belle goes to sleep the transformation begins... 

I know I may say it a lot (even writing this post is making me cry lol) but I cannot believe how lucky Sam and I are that we have our little angel to spend Christmas with... Our 1st Family Christmas is gonna be so amazing!!!!

We have the biggest 7ft tree to decorate then I have to take all the ornaments down and pictures etc ready for all the Christmas stuff we have... I so cannot wait for Belles face on Sunday morning... The decorating fairy's also have a little present for Belle. Sam got her the cutest 'Santa's busy night' pop up book... 

Anyway on to today's card

Its a new sketch from Sketch Saturday

and here is my card:

There is something I love about Christmas - the lushness of red, gold and green!!

This image is from LOTV
The papers are Authentique
The berries and flowers are from That craft place here
The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps
Now not sure if you can see it - but check out the snow...

Oh my I love it lol... you can get it here

Hope you all have a magical weekend too xx

I am entering this into:

Charisma - Christmassy

Lillies Fairys - 3 punches or dies

Simon says - snowflakes
