Let it Snow....

Good morning all and welcome to my new followers...I hope you enjoy what you see here.

Well Black Friday was definitely black weatherwise! I did some Christmas shopping and bought some bits to go to New Zealand and enjoyed spending my voucher at Simon Says Stamp which I won this week but certainly didn't manage any bargains of the century.

Another Christmas card to share today, one of the ones I made last weekend.

Image and sentiment from Imagination Crafts. Image is heat embossed with white EP and shaded with a white pencil. Die'sire EF folder from Crafter's Companion used on the base layer. Gem from my stash.

  9. such a great card - wonderful make Carol - fabulous! Hugs rachel x

  10. So cute and lovely Carol. I remember when I won the Simon Says voucher - it felt so good. The trouble is I could spend a couple of hundred there and and still not get everything I love lol! I don't think we have the great sales that they have in the USA.
    In the real world I've place a couple of orders and am looking forward to getting my hands on and playing with a few bargains. One of the orders arrived today and am looking forward to playing with the stamps soon Karen xx
