Time to celebrate

Been out for a lovely bracing walk in the snow and now indoors for a cosy afternoon and evening. I am sharing another of the Stamposaurus samples I made a few days ago. The bunting, union jack and union jack border are all new patriotic stamps from Stamposaurus. I coloured the Union Jacks with Promarkers and paper pieced the bunting with some Christmas papers. The crown backing paper is from Papermania Portobello Road. I've used the Tim Holtz clock die and a computer generated sentiment to make a card suitable for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
