It's been a busy week again. My daughter went back to work yesterday and I am helping out with the babysitting. I am looking after Finn on a Wednesday. We enjoyed a lovely day playing and having fun. No time for crafting, I will need to wait till he is a little older to introduce him to stamping.
Another Christmas card and very simple again too.
I used the sketch from the Penny Black challenge but not a PB image. This image is a digi from Amberinks. The papers were a freebie from Cardmaking & Papercraft last year. It is coloured with Promarkers and a little Stickles. The die cuts are Nesties and Spellbinder Snowflakes and a bit of Cuttlebug Dots.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Winterwonderland - Walking in Winterwonderland
Cupcake Crafts - Blue and green
Cute card Thursday - Dieing for a Punch
