I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year. I have had a lovely one which I'm surprised about as I'm not a great lover of Christmas. I did no planing - in fact I thought I would just see my two children and grandchildren to open presents and then everyone would be off, but I was told by my daughter only a few days ago that 'of course they'd be coming to me for Christmas lunch'!! Anyway no panic - I couldn't be bothered to get worked up so I just did chicken, vegs etc. I already had everything in so didn't need to do the horrendous Christmas shop. The family had decided to do Secret Santa for the adults so I only had to think of one present, and my daughter sorted that out for me!
I am taking my daughter and grand daughters to Australia in February, so that's their birthday, Christmas and birthday presents all rolled into one - obviously my daughter knew but the girls didn't so we did a Treasure Hunt around the house ending up with labels I'd made giving them a return 'ticket' to Australia. This is the moment Chloe realised what she had found -
When Emily realised too her reaction was just as good:
Emily said "I've always wanted to go to Australia Grandma" Just as well really!!
I made them some thank you cards for them to send off, which I put under the tree - I'd seen the idea on C & C with Sara Davies, Crafters' Companion, and used my Cute Companion stamp and CDs, no change there!! This is Emily's
This is the box:
Here are the cards with inserts and matching envelopes.
And these are Chloe's:
I think they quite liked them. I know Kate, their mum, did!!
Right off now to top up my glass (hic)! Enjoy the rest of your day and what's left of the holiday!
