First Christmas

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers. I need to apologise firstly as I've been a bad blogger this last week but I've been so busy that I've rarely had any time to sit at my computer for any length of time, so at last I'm posting something to share with you all.
This is the Christmas card I've made for Miles First Christmas and couldn't resist using the lovely stamp by Mo Manning called First Christmas.

Miles December 2015

I've also added a photo of Miles with Father Christmas we are so looking forward to seeing him over Christmas. He's such a happy little boy.
I hope this coming week is better for me and I can get round to all your lovely blogs.
Enjoy the week especially if you like me have to battle M&S for the last fresh food shopping !!!
Love and  hugs Carole x


  1. I think time is getting the better of all of us Carole and yes, still have the M&S battle to come, I was there yesterday and it was manic so goodness knows what next week will bring.

    Miles does indeed looks a happy little fellow, a lovely photo.

    And nice card as well.

    In case I'm not round again before, wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas.

  6. Oh this is a super card for Miles Carole...with all the little charms and lovely sentiment you have created. That image so looks like him....he is so adorable. Enjoy your tine with him and your family over Christmas. May you have a Happy and Healthy one and a great New year to follow. Hugs xx

  7. I've not been around much for the last two months either. My computer crashed, lost the motherboard and C:/ drive. That took two weeks to reload and set up on a new computer only to have problems with my phone and internet. Spent over a week trying to get the phone company to come out and fix things. All told, a bit over a month and a half to fix and get back on line.

    Love your card. Beautiful! The image does resemble Miles in the photo. Happy little one for sure.

    Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Love, Hugs and Blessings,
