Well today certainly hasn't turned out as planned. My plan was to do a little housework and lots of crafting. Sounds like the right way round doesn't it. Unfortunately whilst cleaning we discovered that our gas hob has a fault. One of the rings keeps clicking on its own. We have been going to replace it as it, and the oven are 15 years old, but it has decided to tell us when it needs replacing. So, instead of crafting have been ringing around and checking out the internet for a replacement. The plumber can come next Wednesday and to cut a long story short we finally found one we like which will be delivered on Thursday, fingers crossed. So, the cooker is switched off. The plumber says we can use it but to turn it off again after use.
I did manage to make this card last night using one of my new Simply Sassy girls, All Spruced Up, from Funky Kits. I wanted to colour her in Halloween colours and once I found these Kaisercraft Dear Santa papers I had my colour scheme. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, DI Dusty Concorde around the edges. The sentiment is a LOTV stamp and I used a Sakura greenstar pen on the trees. I wanted to echo the tree in the image and remembered a Marianne pine branch die which I used with XCut embossed punched ivy leaves. The fab ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
