Christmas Past and Oldie

Morning all and what a sunny one it is too. 

Been sorting out "stuff" today amazing how therapeutic it is but before I get 
too carried away here is my card for today. 

I have used Imagination Crafts stamp and stamped onto white card with black ink. 
Used a distress ink to make the colour around the edge and added Tonic glitter to the snow. 

Mounted onto a snippet of red card and added with red tape a snippet of ribbon 
from Crafty Ribbons 

Added a few "button" Nuvo drops 

Then mounted the topper onto a Craftwork Christmas card blank. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


We are off the the Village Hall Harvest Festival Meal tonight which will be nice as there 
will be no cooking for me tonight. 

It is Friday (as you know) and so it is share an oldie over at Erika's 

So here is it using Hobby Art Stamps and making my own backgrounds 

Time for me to peg out the washing and maybe get a bit of gardening done.???
