  15. Morning Julia and Wattsonettes. Lovely card Julia. I dont know how you do it ! I look at my stash, blank card, and wonder where to start, not that I have that much, but lack of creativity and artisitic brain cells ! We all understand how much pressure you must be under, so keeping up with your blog when you have so much prep to do just isnt that important ( your health is) so take care and look forward to watching your shows.
    Have a good day everyone.

  16. Hi Julia

    Love this Christmas card. Especially how you've done the trees on the embossing folders. It's fine just having the list of dies and stamps you have used as your so busy prepping. not to sure how you fit 24hrs into your day. Don't work to hard.

  17. Hello Julia, A stunning card, the background is fantastic. Don't worry we are fine with a list of ingredients and as everyone else has said don't over do it and please look after yourself, can't wait to see the shows.
    Take care.
