I hope this finds you well and having fun. I'd like to welcome my newest followers, Jean, Annie, Kathy, and Liz. Thank you for following, it's nice to know you're there :)
I've been playing in the craft room while the EM has been settling into his
Back to crafting ... today I decided to try out the free stamp set and paper pad that came with Issue 127 of Simply Cards & Papercraft, especially as the set included the greeting 'Merry and Bright', perfect for Hazel's CHNC Challenge 191. I also decided to take my inspiration directly from the magazine's designer, Sharon Curtis' fabulous cards.
As well as submitting these cards to the CHNC mentioned above I'm also submitting them to the following challenges:
CHNC challenge extra for August 2014 - anything as long as it's Christmas
Stamping for Pleasure's Rudolph Day - August 2014 - anything Christmas themed as long as there's twoPixie's Snippets Playground - Week 139 - most of the card used for stamping, matting and layering and the piece of inky print used for the topper on Card 2 - all snippets
I know I don't do this often enough but I'd like to thank you for all your lovely comments on my work, I very much appreciate every one.
I hope you are having a great evening and the Friday will be kind to you.
