Sketchie Free For All

For my card I have used a Penny Black stamp 'warm & merry which I got half price the other week in my local craft shop, don't you just love a bargain! The papers are 'woodland winter' by BoBunny. The little meeces look a bit orange - they are brown in real life - honest!

Holly Tree

Hello. I'm here today to share a card using one of the new releases over at The DigiStamp Boutique. How gorgeous is this Holly Tree? And a joy to colour too. I have kept the look clean and simple but you could change the look entirely by adding loads of Christmassy embellies and glitter. There's also a Mistletoe Tree...

And a super cute set 'Christmas Windows'. If you make a card using any of the Boutique's images don't forget to enter the monthly competition to win a £15 voucher - all the info' is here.

Papertake Weekly Challenge - design team card

Hello. It's good to be back. Everything has more or less returned to normal. My 81 year old Mum has settled into her new house and it's looking good. The only thing that's not been sorted is her telephone - and all I'm saying is never...ever...get your phone from the Post Office - dreadful service. But, hey ho of all the things that could have gone wrong, I suppose we were let off lightly.

 it's time for another Papertake Weekly Challenge
And this week it's...
Snow & Ice
We are sponsored by the fabulous...
For my card I used little Penny Black Robin stamps which I watercoloured. The sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts and I gave it a blast of the old Frantage.
OK then, that's it from me today. I have loads of catching up to do in blogland. Can't wait to see what you have all been up to!
