Concord and 9th Christmas card

Disclaimer: I made this card in December (yes, rather obvious given the theme!) but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it because I was writing my Thesis.

Christmas Thank you cards

Normally I don't get coughs and colds, but I was REALLY ill between Boxing Day and my first day back at work so I didn't make any Thank you cards for my Christmas presents, but now I'm feeling better I have remedied the situation. Pinterest is awash with rainbow cards at the moment - the… Continue reading Christmas Thank you cards
