Merry Christmas

Good morning all.

The kids are definitely getting the good weather this week for the holidays...hope it continues into next week as we're hoping to have a few days away.

Another Christmas card to share today which I managed to finish during half time last night. Two happy Liverpool fans in the house now!

Stamp is from Visible Images stamped with versamark and heat embossed with black detail EP, cut with a square nestie and inked with DI whilst in the die, matted onto black card and kraft card base.

  12. Wow - working on Christmas already - I just can't bring myself to make holiday cards off season, not sure why, but I always appreciate when I see how organized others are by getting them done throughout the year. You've really done a beautiful embossing with black powder - that's not easy to do. Thanks so much for joining The House That Stamps Built DCC Embossing Challenge. Hope you enjoyed it!
