Christmas Wishes


Great craft shop sales yesterday and a lovely treat day today. Off for a facial and back massage and a look round the shops in Norwich. Very tiring day yesterday as we were up at 5.30 and standing all day selling so I didn't get much blogging done last night. Will have to catch up later or at the weekend. The second of my vintage Christmas cards in the November issue of Making Cards. I used a lovely Inkylicious stamp with white ink on kraft card cut with a postage stamp Spellbinder. The papers are Echo Park Keepin' Cozy. I used Marianne poinsettia and Tattered Lace ivy dies with tiny red berries from The Ribbon Girl.
