Noel

Well I thoroughly enjoyed my day in front of the TV, the bride looked radiant and her dress was stunning. The Royal family all looked so happy and relaxed and seemed to make the Middletons very welcome and at ease. Loved Prince Harry's running commentary to William as Catherine walked up the aisle and him and Pippa certainly made a handsome pair as they followed the newly weds down the aisle. One of those days when you feel proud to be British!
Made a quick card tonight:
Used this Penny Black stamp again, coloured with promarkers. Image is matted and layered on red and gold mirri card then mounted on foam pads and positioned slightly off centre. Red ribbon has been pleated to the right of the topper.
Challenges I'm entering:
I love Promarkers - no designer paper
Bah! Humbug! - pleats and ruffles
Jingle Belles - no designer papers
Stamp Something - something with wings
