Nice and cosy


Starting to really get going with the Christmas cards now. I don't know about you but one of the hardest things with blogging is thinking up the post title. Anyway on to my card. I have always wanted this stamp and when I spotted her for sale on Ebay she came home to live with me.

Medium - Copics, white gel pen, Sakura gold star pen
Papers and sentiment - Bo Bunny silver and gold
