My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

13 January 2011

A New Beginning

Good morning fellow crafters!  This is just a quick post before I head off to work.

My Sister and her partner of 18 months did the deed on New Year's Eve and they have got engaged, so my make for today is a card I have made for them.  They have both been married twice before and this time I think she has certainly found her match, he is just lovely and they are very well suited to eachother.

I'm hoping this looks OK as have had to take this picture using my day lamp as its still really dark here!

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:-
For this card I used:-
  • Digi Stamp Boutique Alex & Felecity Digi
  • V&A Hanoverian Linen Paper (New)
  • Computer Generated Greetings
  • Promarkers
  • Card Candy
  • Pearlescent Card Using Sizzix Decorative Corner Punch Die
Thanks for stopping by this morning and I hope you like what you see.  As always your comments are greatly appreciated.  Don't forget to stop by on Saturday as its my 1st Blogoversary and there will be candy on offer!


  1. Hiya Claire
    Gorgeous card hun - love the spotty scarf effect!
    Thanks for always popping over tosee me.
    I haven't returned to work and after Christmas I decided to hand my notice in - I couldn't take the stress of worrying about what they would be thinking or what they would be like with me if and when I did return.
    So for now I am taking a break until I feel physically & mentally ready to return to work.
    Hope you have a fabulous day.
