Love at Christmas


I had a lovely day yesterday, thanks to everyone for my birthday wishes. As you might expect there were quite a few crafty bits amongst my pressies. A couple of new Penny Blacks, some Tim Holtz stuff and this brilliant little stamp set from Banana Frog. How clever is my hubby? I mentioned this company a while back and he made an order to be delivered to my sister-in-laws house so that it would be a surprise. Bless.

So this is my card to hubby using the new set. I used two of the petal stamps to make a heart shape. I stamped with black ink on to basic grey paper and heat embossed. I doodled three bits of holly and cut out. I also doodled the black border and like that it wobbles a bit!

You can't quite see in the pic' but I also embossed two lines near the bottom and finished off with 3 heart shaped gems.

When he opened it his words were 'how many challenges have I been entered into?' They know us so well!

It fits 3 challenges....
