Teacher gifts

Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are well! I am good as are the girls - we have been getting into the Christmas spirit having been on the first session of the village Carol singing last night and to the school carol service tonight. Back to village Christmas carol singing tomorrow night but before that we have the pinocchio play to go and see tomorrow morning. The girls are going with school and my mum and I are going independently!Looking forward to that. We will also be giving out the teachers Christmas present s tomorrow - its been a labour of love and we have all played a role - including mum!

We made 12 altogether - 4 of each colour blue, purple and green/yellow.

Here's one of the yellow ones. The stamps are from paperartsy. I used crackle medium from paperartsy also to create the crackle. I do hope the teachers enjoy these!

Lastly a picture from my night out last Friday with my friends Michelle and Danielle - my new grown up hairdo - its short at the back!!!!

Hope you're having a good run up to Christmas!

Big hugs
