Feeling a bit bashful!!!

Well I thought I would share with you something we have done for our Didge for Crimbo! As most of you know she had braces fitted in April, so this Crimbo will be the first year she can't eat choc & loadsa sweets....well the one tradition in our house is advent calendars, me (thomas the tank), Nige (the simpsons), KatieKat (hello kitty), Didge (pepper pig) & even Charlie dawg has his own with special doggie chocs in... Well I just brought them without thinking, after feeling guilty I came up with the idea of takin all the chocs out & replacing them with sugar free polo's (katiekat sat & ate all the chocs except for the one she gave me!!!) some of the holes were to small for polos so I used the sweets off one of those candy necklaces, that I had for my birthday off Hazel (dido thanks hun) ....So Didge isn't gonna miss out after all lolololol xx

Hi Shell

What a lovely thing to do for Didge .. .. I must admit I didn't notice her brace at all when we met last month.

I can remember when I was 6 or 7 my Dad leaving me one of those candy necklaces on the end of my bed. I woke to find it and wore it all day .. .. but gradually one by one I ate the sweets and the necklace got smaller and disappeared by the end of the day LOL!!! Whenever I see one I think of my Dad.

Your card is lovely.

You colour your images beautifully.

Love Jules xx
