Hope Your Christmas is as Special as You

Good morning everyone.

The temperature has really dipped here in Buxton.  It's quite cold now.  Time to bring out the thermals lol.
My lad went back to School today after his half term break (and inset day) and boy did he not want to
go back.  I think he really enjoyed his week off and wanted it to carry on a bit longer, bless.

I have a Christmas card to share today....

This is another Digi Stamp Boutique image and it is so adorable.  When my friends came to visit last week one of them dropped a hint that she would like this cute penguin and polar bear for her Christmas card, so this is going to her.  I have coloured this in with Pro-Markers and a blender pen.  The papers are Magnolia's 12 x 12.  The button and ribbon are from my stash.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The gorgeous blue flowers and doily are from a prize I won from Scribble & Scrap a week ago and I got to choose some goodies from the craft shop....

Aern't they lovely :)
