From our home to yours


So how are your Christmas cards coming along? I am doing ok but still need to make a lot more. So with that in mind I decided to make 5 of this design. It isn't very often that I do that but I really like this simple design. So one for Crafty Ribbons as a sample, 2 for me to send and 2 to sell.

I stamped the Inkylicious tree branch a few times and then added some tiny red berries with a Sakura pen. The cottage is also a Inkylicious stamp, star is a Memory Box die and the lovely ribbon is a new one from Crafty Ribbons.
