I made this card for someone very special to me, my dear Aunt June (my favourite Auntie) I know I shouldn't have a favourite but I love her to bits, she's always been so kind to me and she's been 'into' every single craft over the years, she's been a huge inspiration to me. Last February she was diagnosed with cancer and hasn't long to live, she is taking each day as it comes and trying to make the best of it, she's very brave in my eyes.
On that note I will say, have a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS, enjoy having your family around you and let them know how special they are to you.
Good afternoon all, well I've done it, I think I'm actually ready for Christmas,
today I'm visiting family, taking presents and cards, tomorrow I shall be cleaning the house, finishing off ironing etc, hopefully then I'm done. (I hope)
If you still need to make Christmas cards, today we have our last challenge before Christmas over at Tilda's Town and it's a nice easy one for you 'Something Christmas'

I hope you have time to play along this week, my team mates have made some fantastic cards for your inspiration, take a look here also there's a chance of winning a fab $10 prize to spend at the Tilda's Town Store and don't forget it's free worldwide shipping!

I've painted Tilda with distress inks and used Pion papers from Diestodiefor

and Wild Orchid roses.
