Where’s them shades??

Well, I am all set for the fat bloke to arrive Smile 

Food shopping – check
Presents bought and wrapped – check
Housework – check

So now I can kick back and relax for a few days, although I am at work next week Wednesday to Friday – first time in years I have worked between Christmas and New Year, but I am saving my holidays for CHA woohoo, 5 weeks and counting Hot smile

You need your shades for today’s card, it was made on behalf of Lili of the Valley for the latest Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine that went on sale this week.

I love these little mice, so cute and a doddle to colour too.  The stamp is The Potting Shed, and the sentiment is from their Circular Sentiments sets.  The delish paper is K & Co Sweet Nectar from Dies to Die for as is the gorgeous Memory Box Pearl Lace border die. And talking of Memory Box dies, Tracy has all their news dies up for pre-order and we all know how fast they fly!

Must dash, else I will be late for work again.

  5. Morning Bev, I saw your cards in the mag last week and thought how lovely & bright to cheer up this dull and dreary weather(I subscribe so get my mags early). Love your inspiration and I flick through every month to see what you have for me (cos it is just for me - well I can dream can't I? - My own designer/tutor!!) LOL.!
    Warm Christmas blessings to you and yours Bev and to all your followers too.
    Best wishes Linda xx
