First Christmas & Happy New Year!


Ok, so I am a little behind on wishing you all a Happy New Year, but here I am & I wish you a very happy, healthy & creative 2015 :)

It's all things back to normal here at Uniko Studio HQ as the hubby has returned to work today after nearly two weeks off with us. I had a mild panic attack thinking 'how will I cope with the beans without him again', so far all is going smoothly! 

With having hubby home and lots of family time I didn't get round to creating much, but I did make the beans a First Christmas card each and so I thought I'd share that with you today...

Nothing like leaving things to the last minute, I sat down on Christmas Eve night to make them! I had them planned out so they came together quite quickly. I used Background Builders: Christmas for the silver snowflakes, Sweet Baby for the bear & added a Hero Arts stamped santa hat and finally a combined SU! and Simply Said Christmas sentiment. 

I used Prismacolor pencils to colour the bear and blended them with gamsol. I then added a good dose of Wink of Stella to the bear and added glitter to the santa hat. To keep things fair I did the two cards exactly the same in the same colours! 

I thought I'd share a few photos from the day, it was CrAzY as both were over excited and over tired at times...

This is the only photo them both in their personalised snowflake tops I bought them especially for Christmas Day. Josh promptly threw up all over his just as I'd got him dressed, so I quickly hand washed it and tumble dried it before we left for Grandma & Grandad's house!

They got lots of First Christmas things and these were the hats Grandma bought them...

Josh flaked out in his bouncy seat & Ben below with Grandad...

Ok, I had better be going as the boys are sure to be waking up soon for their lunch and I have some SAHM duties to do and orders to pack which reminds me, there is a CRAZY January SALE over on the Uniko Studio website HERE. Don't miss out on a bargain & there is limited stock on some items, so be quick, it ends Saturday 10th January! 

Thanks for stopping by today & I'll be back later this week with more to share :)
