Elf yourself

I love this new stamp from The Greetings Farm and this card was so quick to make too. I chose the colours following Copic Colour Challenge this week, I think my patterned paper by Dovecraft is a good match. The sketch is from A Spoon Full of Sugar, Creative Card Crew want to see scallops and Stampavie and more and La-La Land Crafts have a Christmas theme.

I've done a spot of paper piecing for Anyone for Anya and My Time to Craft want to see quick and cute. They also have a DT call on so get looking if you want to be in with a chance.

I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch on white glittered card and popped a Doodlebug gem in the centres. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

If you read my blog earlier this week, you will know that this is Babyloss Awareness week and at 7pm tonight (GMT) it's Global Wave of Light where families across the world light candles to remember their forever babies. I'll be lighting my candle for Flynn and for all the other forever babies too. Lots of magical twinkling lights. My earlier post has links to the charities that support this event.

Whilst I'll be thinking about Flynn and my precious two days with him, I'll also be counting my lucky stars that I've gone on to have two more healthy gorgeous boys too - Zac:

and Blake:

Gentle hugs to all of you who have been affected by the loss of a baby.
