Little Claire in Making Cards magazine


This is one of three cards I made for Making Cards magazine and have only just got round to blogging. The image and sentiment are from the Christmas Scotties stamp set, coloured with Copics. I used LOTV Woodland Wishes papers, MFT pierced rectangle and stitched fishtails and Joy snowflake dies, ribbon, pearls, Stickles and that pearl pen again. I do love using that, had you noticed!

Challenges

Hospital craft fair today so another early start. Last time I did this I had my best ever sales anywhere so let's hope for a good one again today.
