Evening all 

Bit late but as I missed yesterday I thought I must get onto my blog and say hi.

Thank you for popping in. 

Been a good day been into town today although it was double the distance this week to get into
town as the main road is closed and I refuse to go the very narrow country lane, when the 
main road is closed. Its not me - not wanting to drive the road - which is fine - it is the 
other drivers on the road. 

Will one day get a few photos of the road just to show you what I mean - it is very much single track
and with a step edge into the fields below and no passing places.

I thought I would share this Christmas card for you today. 

It has Todo die manger cut out of black card and stamping of the Wise Men and Star from Clarity Stamps to create this card. 

I have made a sun from a mask and added hills of sand using just one colour 

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


Best dash now as Holby is on and do not want to miss it.

  5. Mm Pen I get what you mean about roads of that ilk. Saw them in UK and we have some of them here too. I do love these silhouette dies and you've certainly used them skilfully with the Sandhills and other highlights of sponging.. a true Christmas card! :D
    So delighted to be GDT member for Rudolph Day Christmas Challenge, thank so much for sharing with us your creative inspiration.
