Magical Christmas

Alan my eldest son grew up through the Harry Potter years, he enjoyed reading and he hoovered up the books.  So much though, at one point in his life, he wrote to Dumbledore and received back owl post and he even considered moving out should he be called upon to attend Hogwarts as a trainee wizard. (Of course we didn't feed his imagination and assist with owl post, but when he told a friend at school, he tried it and nothing happened to his letters so he asked if it could be sent from ours.  Surprisingly a reply came back - the owl got lost of the way to his friends - apparently!

Anyway, as a deadline is approaching I'd better complete this post & get the card in!


So, my card uses another fab Bugaboo along with a LOTV date, diecut foliage and some recycled cracker decoration baubles as kinda Quiddich snitch balls! Paper is a lovely 12 x 12 sheet by Best Creation Inc.

And as Alan is now away from home in Uni accommodation I think this is the perfect card for him this year.
