Christmas concert!

Alex has performed his first school Christmas concert this week.  He was an angel and 'Narrator One' in the nativity play that the Reception class put on.  He sang beautifully and said his words nice and clearly and I was very proud of him.  This photo was taken part way through one of the songs (taken from a distance and heavily cropped to make sure I don't show any other children).
And this one was taken at the end of the concert when he was bored and waiting for the head teacher to stop talking so he could get off stage.  He very much enjoyed the concert and we were impressed with how well behaved he was on stage.
This is my desk as part of WOYWW. As you can see I am part way through making another Christmas card. All the others have been posted, I just need a few more for work.  You can see fresh clean white card, a failed attempt at a card on the left (the stamping went wrong!), and various Christmas rubber stamps as well as my trusty mug of tea at the back of the desk.  The sellotape is there in the hopes that it will inspire me to actually start wrapping presents!
This is the final card which is for entry into Less is More one layer snowflake challenge.  The snowflakes are a mixture of free (the largest), Crafty Individuals (the middle sized) and Hero Arts (the two smallest). I heat embossed the largest one in silver and added silvery gems to the middle of most of them. The sentiment is from Just Rite. I am also adding this into CCC 'don't look at the light' (use lots of sparkle...silver embossing, silver gems), PTW 'I'm dreaming of a black and silver Christmas' (when we were teenagers there was a black and silver ball held at this time of the year!), Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 'Christmas Glitz', and The Pixie cottage 'Anything goes Christmas' challenges.  That is all from me for now.  I hope you have a great rest of the week.
