Blimey, who nicked my weekend??? I had great plans to get loads done and didn’t tick one thing off the list. Me and plans just don’t get along and they should have as I am away at Leeds this weekend as it’s the Lili of the Valley Colouring Masterclass) so I will have to get my skates on to get ahead again this week. If you’re still dithering about the class there might be a couple of places left, you can check out the deets here.
And now for today’s card – it’s Wild Orchid Challenge day and this week our challenge is super easy …. Christmas Fun. Perfect for those that are needing to get Christmas cards done, unlike me who will be buying them this year lol.
And yes I’m afraid it’s another magazine card, guess who was uber busy a few months ago! Now you know why I will be buying Christmas cards, I finished with them ages back and am already working on new stuff for the next releases. This stamp – Toboggan for Two - has to be one of my favourites from LOTV’s Christmas release (okay so I say that about all of them I guess). I used the LOTV Grunge Music stamp behind the image and a sentiment from the Christmas Circular Sentiments the papers are from the Dovecraft Christmas pack – a truly stunning set of papers loaded with traditional colours and patterns with touches of gold.
The gingham ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts looked a bit too clean and new so I swiped it with brushed corduroy ink to age it a bit. The Divine Twine, button and wooden reindeer are also all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Have a fantastic week
