Christmas pals


I really need to get more Christmas cards made and I am also on a mission to use some of the many toppers I have. I haven't bought much craft stash lately although I did order a couple of paper pads on Monday. I have bought far less this year but looking forward to Crafting Live in Doncaster in July. I don't have much on my list of basics needed so it will be good to see what is there. I haven't been to one of the big shows this year so far.

So back to my card which features a cute topper from Wee Stamps at The Hobby House. The papers are MME All is Bright, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons,flowers from Hobbycraft last Christmas.  I used an old Memory Box holly die and added sparkle to various parts of the image with a clear Wink of Stella Pen and some Stickles to the ground.

Beautiful I love these toppers and your great colours I think I might have this as a stamp must dig deep and find out. Enjoy the shows I'm so sad we have nothing in the NE now as i loved the Harrogate show but not happening now with the closure of Craftwork Cards must get organised for next year to go further afield Love and hugs Carole x
