Blue and kraft Christmas


Back with my second post today and it's a Christmas card using some of the lovely patterned burlap I bought in America. The layered embossed snowflake is one of my favourite purchases from last November's NEC show, along with the Tim Holtz word dies. I added some cord and a pearl and that's it. Love this colour combo. 

It's a horrid damp windy dull day here today. Had a trip to Dunelm Mill this morning including a nice coffee stop. Then Tescos for a little food shop and now glad to be home in the warm. Feeling a bit washed out again today so some computer work planned this afternoon and a spot of crafting if I have time. Hope you are all having a good day.
