My Lovely Supporters

22 Oct 2017


Hi all, I am afraid I have not been around these last few weeks I have been helping my brother look after mum so he could have a bit of time to himself, he has been feeling drained so I decided to step in and give him a break.  
I have, however, managed to make a few Christmas cards and this is one of them, I have used one of my new stamps that I bought recently from Magnolia Sweden this is Tilda with Poinsettia
The papers are Bearly Mine (no longer available) I have mounted the papers and image onto black card, I coloured Tilda with Copics then added a bow, stamped sentiment and an additional Poinsettia.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Many thanks for popping by

Difficult time Lorraine and I know only too well how draining it can be, but pleased you found time to have a little me time to craft. Blue is a colour I rarely use but do like to see it used in such a pretty creation.

A beautiful card Lorraine, such a pretty image and lovely colours - it's such a shame that Bearly Mine is no longer trading.
I hope your brother is feeling all refreshed now.

What a beautiful holiday card Lorraine! Just wanted to pop in and say hello my friend. It's been a long year and I have lost track of so many of my bloggy friends during my absence. I do hope all is well and you are making time for crafting during your family struggles. Our temperatures have been up and down this autumn, but at least the nights are getting cooler and I'm thankful for that. We've had lots of rain and I'm hoping that's a sign that we will get lots of snow this year. Wouldn't that be great!! lol. sending hugs :)
