I feel like I have been a little ‘AWOL’ the past few weeks and the truth is, I have been! As well as the usual Christmas madness and juggling work & kids, I’ve been really unwell the past two weeks, which has thrown me for a six! I usually get sick every school holidays when the germs finally catch me, but this time they got me a beauty.
It’s also been an incredibly emotional month for us as our eldest daughter enters her final few weeks of Primary School. When I sit and create in my room I usually zone out, but I have been sitting and reflecting on where the time has gone and how on earth I can possibly be old enough to be the mother of a High School child. Didn’t I only leave High School a few years ago? I’m trying to be careful not to let the occasional tear plop onto my creations. 🙂
This card in particular made me think of the times when my girls were very little and it was easy to lift them up to put the angel on the tree. These days, two of them can step up and reach themselves and the other one gets herself a step stool!

Using the same stamp set with the addition of the Medallion stamp in the background in Cherry Cobbler, I created this large square card.
