Whimsy Stamps ~ Sweet Christmas Wishes

Hey there crafty friends, I'm trying to get the last of my Christmas makes shared before the big day. It's Christmas Eve day here already and I'm fast running out of time. So let me get on with sharing this sweet creation I made. I've only had a few this year that I've been able to give myself, as pretty much everything else Christmassy I made was either part of a commission for my new boss, or my Mum and brother snapped them up at one of our regular family dinners! I didn't have enough time to make extras for myself this year! It's the cobbler's children story all over!!

We are doing a card swap amongst the Diva's Design Team at Whimsy as a fun round up to a wonderful year of creating together. So this is what I created for that. One of our teamies had a sweet Grandson born earlier this year and as I didn't have time to create a card in celebration of that at the time, I worked this into my theme for her Christmas card. How perfect is this sweet image from Crissy Armstrong for a baby's first Christmas?! I absolutely LOVE this sweet image! Ellie's Bauble is the name of this cute image.

I had a die on my desk from another project I was working on and thought it was just the perfect sentiment for this design. I added a little snowflake wreath as the final touch with a bit of glitter to make it sparkle and roughed up the paper layers for a bit of texture. I added sparkle to the wee bauble Ellie's holding too. I created the rounded square shape for the image by using a fabulous Whimsy Stamps Rounded Rectangle Die and bringing in the side a little to fit the image.

I can't believe it is actually Christmas Eve day here now. 1 more sleep to go!! My kiddos are super excited. It's both gorgeous and terrifying. Will this be the year my small boy figures it all out?! I love the magic of Christmas, so long may it last in this house! Hugs and Merry Christmas to you all xoxo
