Hi Aimes,

I am loving your Christmas cards, vintage with a modern and unique feel.

Thank for the award too, so kind as always. Don't know if I want to answer those questions mind - to scary, I might find out I am actually quite dull LOL!

Cute card! Congrats on your blog award. It was fun getting to find out more about you. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog too and leaving such a sweet comment. Thankfully the snow is all gone now.

Stephanie said...

I loved this post, as well as the fabulous card it's great to get a sneak peak into other peoples lives LOL

I simply cannot live without my YSL TE - I do not leave the house without sweeping it under my eyes first lol

As for my Copic colouring, you're giving me far too much credit hun because the secret behind good colouring (in my case) is....being lucky enough to have all the colours!

Getting more excited about our girlie weekend by the minute!!!!
Lots a love
