My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

29 July 2011

The Happy Couple

Morning ....... well what's happened to the weather? It's really overcast here in the Midlands today and quite muggy too .... it may seem that some rain is on the way!?  And I can't believe the first week of the holidays is over already too - it's just flown by.

I have managed to make a card this week, in between the wedding stationery that seems to be taking up so much of my time at the moment.

DSB Cute Bride & Groom Digi Stamp
Stampin-Up En Francais Background Stamp
Brilliance Rocket Red Ink
Vintage Papers
PM Gems
Frosted Lace Stickles
Bazzil Basics Cardstock
Roses from Stash
Ribbon from a Thorntons Box of Chocolates!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
