My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

23 January 2011

Just Lazing Around!

Good morning!  Well its not a very nice day here again in the Midlands, has rained overnight and is dull and cloudy.  I managed to get into the craft room yesterday, so be prepared for many posts today LOL as I've been on catch up!

My first card is for the following challenges:-

For this card I used:-
  • House Mouse Stamp Image - given to me by a friend
  • DCWV Paper from Stash
  • Yellow Paper from Stash embossed with Sizzix Floral Texture Plate
  • Promarkers
  • PM Gems
  • Nestie & Scallop Punch
  • Flowers Coloured With Promarkers
Would love to hear what you think as your comments always inspire me.
