At last, I made a card!

Yes, last night I finally had some crafting time and managed to make a start on this card which I finished off today. It felt so good to be back in my craftroom again after my holiday. I've used one of the new LOTV stamps teamed with Forever Friends papers. I've used some of my new goodies on this card, Tim Holtz distressing tool, Wonky Square Nesties and MS snowflake punches. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, added some punched ivy and holly leaves and red roses to the snowflakes.

Sorry I haven't got round to much blogging yet. The holiday ironing is almost finished and the house is nice and clean again. I'm packing again to head off to the Crafter's Companion workshop tomorrow but things will be back to normal next week when I will be making Christmas cards like mad as I have 3 orders plus my own to get finished. In the meantime I hope you will enter my candy which can be found on My Candy page.
