T'was The Night Before Christmas .......

Morning lovelies, I hope that you are all doing well and looking forward to some festive fun over the next few days. I am still rushing around lol and probably will be right up until the big day by the looks of things and I am starting to feel like I am coming down with another cold so I am hoping that is just because I am tired and a good nights sleep will fix it.

Today's card is another commissioned one there is actually a surprise inside but I dare not show it as the people that it is intended for occasionally check my blog when I am least expecting it and although I sure they probably wouldn't at the moment I don't want to chance it.

I wont go in to all the details as I still have loads to get done, but I hope you like it

This is really beautiful Lindsay. I need those Memory Box dies (and loads and loads of other dies!) and the embellies are gorgeous. Where are the flowers from or how did you make them? They're really pretty. All in all, it's a stunning card.
