Happy Christmas Everyone

Just a quick post tonight,
I'd like to wish everyone a very
Happy Christmas
Thank you to those who have become followers &
a big thank you to all of you who left me comments,
they really do matter & I appreciate each & everyone!
Moving on quickly, before I start to sound too soppy....LOL
I started to make a shaker card for Mackenzie, but then decided to turn it into a little decoration, it's the first time I've done one of these & it was fairly easy,
It's not perfect but Mac was impressed!

  2. Her favourite animals are horses
  3. She loves her pet dog, Fletch
