Finally a Card!!

Finally a card from me. We've about 6 inches of snow. The kids are off though we are still have issues with Daniels school and he is off as we've chose to take him out for the moment till they sort out their teaching methods. Hubby at home and an internet connection when my laptop chooses!!!
Anyway, a christmas card using my MM Slice. Bought the magnetic pad with I just love. I'd already stamped Tilda and coloured her with Promarkers but it looked bare so using my slice helped fill in the gaps. I don't know what the corner stamps are but I stickled all the berries. Made the bow using the "Bow Easy" and a White Sakura Pen dotted over the Letters.
Not long now till my holiday and what with the weather, packing to do, kids at home and my internet playing up I'm not sure how often I'm going to be able to craft now. I'll be back tomorrow with my LOTV Dt Card and will craft and blog hop when I can.
Well I hope your enjoying the snow. Looks like we could be in for a night of it here in the SouthEast. I could sit at the window all night just watching it!!!

Heres a list of challenges and fingers crossed back tomorrow with another card;

Paper Sundaes - Adorn Those Corners
ABC Christmas Challenge - Yuletide ((red/green & holly and berries)
A Crafty Little Place - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - Anything Goes
Ladybugs Crafts Ink - Colour Wheel (red/green)
Die Cut Dreams Xmas - Use a Die Cut
Ellephantastic - Red/Green
Digi Doodles - Red/Green

Bye for now and thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Hugs

Ooh, Claire I do love this card. The corner stamps are beautiful. Sorry to hear that you are still having probs with Daniel's school - I don't know what to suggest either because the system here is quite different. Take care and stay warm - I can remember when we lived near Bromley we had horrendous snow one year, almost knee deep. You certainly will have earned your holiday! Hugs, Tracey T xx
