My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

Sweet Stampin' DT Card - Slugs, Snails & Puppy Dog Tails

Morning crafters!  Well I am really sorry I haven't been around much (OK at all) this week!  The week has flown, I've not had any time to even step in the craft room let alone make a card :O(

The good news is that my daughter Megs arrived home from Hooke Court at 4.45 pm yesterday afternoon and I was greeted with a massive hug, kiss and cuddle, which was absolutely lovely - I have really missed her and the house has been sooooo quiet!  She's at her Dad's this weekend, but I will catch up with her properly on Monday.

So it's Saturday and time for another challenge at Sweet Stampin' and the theme this week is "Slugs, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails" which can be interpreted in a couple of ways, make a card using that kind of image or a card aimed at boys getting dirty in mud, playing with worms, etc.

We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps

Here's my take on the theme this week:-

It was a bit of a rush job unfortunately, so it's definitely not one of my better makes!

Card Ingredients:-
  • Whimsy Stamps Party Snail Digi Stamp
  • Promarkers
  • MME Wild Asparagus Papers
  • DCVW Cardstock
  • PM Gems
  • Die Cut Greeting
I do hope you will join in with the fun this week and hope you will pop across to the blog to take a look at the rest of the DT's fabulous creations.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

  18. Cute card Claire. Where does the time go, I've not managed to make any cards for nearly a week now! I have managed a bit of craft shopping, my son was playing footie in Farnborough just half a mile from The Art of Craft - how lucky was that?? Wondering what to do next weekend, whether to venture up to the NEC or to Exeter for a Quilt Exhibition or maybe I could fit both in!!
    Nearly the Easter hols.... 3 weeks and counting!
    Have a good week.
