North Pole House

One way of cooling down in this hot weather is making Christmas cards.Thinking of snow and snowflakes is lovely in this heat. Today I am showcasing one of the new Amanda Loverseed stamps now available from Stamposaurus. The stamp is on their revamped website and this card is one of the samples which will shortly be on their gallery and show stand. I love Amanda's quirky style and I have 2 other great stamps to play with too. It has been coloured with Copics with loads of Stickles added. I found the paper in my oddments pile and added some baker's twine, Christmas tree charm and Prima flowers with yet more stickles.

To finish off our week we had a lovely day out on the Norfolk Broads with friends in a day launch we hired. It was a bit cool in the morning but glorious sunshine all afternoon. Spending the weekend catching up on some jobs and some DT work. I have several guest DT spots coming up and some card orders to make so busy, busy, busy.

I would like to welcome my lovely new followers and remind you that my candy is open until 27 July. The candy post is at the top of my blog.
Enjoy your Sunday.
