My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

21 October 2012

With Love from me to you!

Evening everyone, hope you have had a good weekend.

I took the girls to The Warner Brother Studios to see The Making of Harry Potter Tour on Saturday and it was just brilliant.  I have posted some pics at the end of this post.

My card share tonight it one I made for Mark to celebrate 8 years together (when we first met) cos I am soppy like that LOL.

It is also a make using up some of the scraps of paper leftover from my Kusudama Ball (see previous post) as Lisa had set us a challenge to use them up!  I still have a way to go though!

Card Ingredients:

Lili of the Valley Die Cut Square
Kraft Card
Papermania Capsule Collection Sunshine Papers
Pearls - GNPE Stash
E-Z Rub-On Greeting

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Lili's Fairies Anything Goes

The Crafty Pad 193 Use An Animal

As promised here are some pics from Harry Potter - I took 91 in total!


Thanks for stopping by.
