A Note to Say...

Good morning all.

We had all sorts of weather here yesterday - one minute snow next sunshine. Sadly the snow didn't even lie!

A clean and simple card today made for the Card Chain Challenge February swap. I know my partner has received this so I'm free to share it with you all.

This is the first time I've joined in with the swap but it's a great way to make new friends around the world...this card went to Portugal and I received one back from Spain. The February reveal post can be found here.

Stamps from STAMPlorations stamped with Memento ink. Sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with white detail EP, this has been fussy cut to give some dimension and I think it also covers up a failed attempt at stamping!!. Stitched die from Spellbinders. Finished with some gems.

Challenges entered:
Not Just Cards - anything goes
One Crazy Stamper - anything goes
The Sisters of Craft - anything goes
A Gem of a Challenge - clean and simple
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
STAMPlorations - anything goes
