Happy Boxing Day


Happy Boxing Day to everyone, hope you all got everything you wanted for Christmas and more.

Home with the family and enjoying every single minute of Christmas. It was so magical yesterday, seeing Amber, Alex and Lauren opening their presents.

At one point there were six adults in the kitchen helping with the dinner …. talk about too many cooks spoil the broth …. but this wasn’t the case …. dinner was delicious and more.

One moment was truly magical and will stay in my heart forever, Alex (only 10) bought his mum a beautiful bracelet …. he wrapped the pressie and put it under the tree without a word to anyone. When Clare opened the present she adored it, the bracelet was stunning …. what makes it so amazing is that Clare had told him off during the week for taking money out of his moneybox, she thought he had spent the money on junk. It turns out the money was for his mum’s bracelet and he took the telling off without saying a word …. well as you can imagine I had tears in my eyes …. awwww he reminds me so much of my son.

Onto my card, Sentimental Sundays Challenge this week is New Baby. Made a sweet little tag with a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs …. I used the welcome and a cute little baby sentiment, you can find them at Whimsy Stamps it is sooo cute. You will find so much more inspiration from the other DT members please click onto their individual blogs on the right side bar. While adding your creation don’t forget to pick up your freebie digi sentiments.
