Frame it

Just when you thought it was safe to view my blog without seeing Christmas cards, I've slipped one in. Mainly because today is the 25th January and I've been told this is Rudolph day, so on the 25th of each month you make some Christmas Cards in hope you're not in a last minute panic in December.
The Penny Black challenge is to frame it, the frame is cut with the cricut with the Storybook cartridge but it makes holes in the side so I covered them up with the gems. I'm not going to admit that this stamp I brought last year for my Christmas cards was never was inked nor am I going to admit the Craftwork cards trees were in an unopened packet. The card was a bit rushed to make sure that I could photo in daylight and to arrange a schedule post because I had to leave home early so DH could help BIL so we could get to our favourite Chinese Restaurant on time to celebrate the Chinese New Year, I knew its a couple of days early but it still was a pretty good reason.
