Soft and Silent

Good morning all.

On Wednesday I felt quite envious of a few of my blogging pals who were flying out of Edinburgh yesterday headed for the Nec...when I work up yesterday morning and heard the weather I was more than happy to turn over and snuggle under the duvet again!! The wind howled most of the day with squally showers...I didn't venture over the doorstep at all.

Another simple Christmas card to share today.

Stamp is from Stamping All Day, inked with silver metallic ink. Dies are from Spellbinders. Embossing has been done with a Joanna Sheen snowflake stencil. Finished with silver metallic ribbon and some gemstones.

Challenges entered:
CHNC - make it sparkle
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
Moving along with the Times  - sparkle or shine
Crafty Ribbons - Christmas with ribbon
CRAFT - winter
Crimbo Crackers - clean and simple


  1. This is gorgeous Carol. Went to the NEC yesterday and had a great day with Mrs Duck (aka Ang) and then later we met up with Patricia, Hazel and Kate for an evening of food and merriment. A super day all round. Would have been nice to have seen you too. Maybe next year! Christine xx
