Good morning all.
Decorations all up now just have to clean the rest of the house and do some baking...I do hate housework!!

A quick Christmas card to share today, made for my nephew and his wife and very reminiscent of their wedding invites which I made earlier this year.

The Spellbinders Heirloom stamps were a magazine freebie, stamped in DI embossing ink and heat embossed with EP. Silver peel offs and cord used to finish off the card.

  6. This is a really pretty card Carol. Well, the Christmas tree has been brought in from the shed but that's as far as it goes. The last few years I have resorted to an artificial tree which is very realistic I have to say, but such a hassle to erect - and takes forever!! Hugs Christine xx
