More Christmas

Well have just spent 24 hours with no money-senior moment yesterday and forgot my pin number and ended up getting card blocked,luckily okay today lol.Holly-Ann(5yrs) has had the same "boyfriend" Harry through nursery,reception and year one,but came home yesterday and informed me she had a new boyfriend-Bradley but she told him she couldn't marry him as she was going to marry Harry-but he could come and live with them-then whispered to me-that way I get two rings !!!Matthew is dreading her teenage years lol.I made these two cards for Ellie and Holly-Ann from their Auntie Helen.The image is from Mos Digital Pencil,coloured with promarkers and added glamour dust and glossy accents,the sentments were computer generated,ribbon and papers from stash and cardstock from Papermill Direct.
not sure what happened to colour-hair looks grey and is light brown on card.
