When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Well go me! 
I go months with no WOYWW posting and then I go and post 2 weeks on the trot. Well I hope my fellow desk dashers are pleased to see me as I am delighted to be back.

So I took these earlier today. 

Christmas card making. I confess most of my cards this year will be shop bought or digitally designed and posted onto people's Facebook or email. But for close family and best friends I am making.

Inspired by this gorgeous paper pad I bought when I went to the new Hobbycraft store in Bath.
So you can see the pile of already made base cards awaiting their sentiments and seals. Washi tape and tools. And a finished card. Can you spot what is wrong with it?

I am waiting on some more gold sealing wax being delivered today hopefully. Not sure you can tell but it is the Hogwarts seal I am using!

I am also the proud owner of a new WOYWW badge that is standing on my Ottlite base. Julia kindly sent me one when she also kindly sent me a fabulous horse and jockey stamp.
So that's me this week. I will pop by at some point so have that kettle on ready for coffee! 

Take care Zo xx

Hi again Zoe, I really wouldn't worry about the upside down antlers. I had to look for ages and that was having been told there was a mistake. The paper pad is certainly lovely! Happy WOYWW Sarah #27
