The Essence of Christmas
Well Christmas is well and truly started in my craft room.
The main image is a Vintage Christmas image from HERE
The Recipes and food clip art are from Printable Heaven, HERE
I made a Pocket to store the recipe cards in for the back of the card
This card was all about the wonderful food we eat at Christmas.
When I was a child I remember my Mam had a special cupboard, where she started gathering special goodies just for Christmas, you could look, but not touch until Christmas eve, when the extra special food started to appear, and each day until new years eve, we had delightful treats to eat.
Remember when you were a Child, the excitement of Christmas
This beautiful image from Christine Haworth captured that feeling.
