A Lily of the Valley Christmas

So who waited up till silly o'clock to buy the new Lily of Valley Christmas stamps. OK that would be me then. Well not really I'm having problems getting to sleep so I used it to my advantage although buying at that time of night is not good for remember what to buy. I wanted the Christmas circle sentiments but forgot to order them so will have to do it next time!
I was good though I didn't buy them all, some were quite detailed and I'm planning quick Christmas cards. I love this bauble stamp its like one I hunted for from Papermania but when I got my hands on it found it was absolutely enormous but this one is perfect.
I used the stamping up sentiment told you would see it again, again, again...........................
Yes I know I don't really need those red pearls but impatient lil here wouldn't wait for the ink to dry and the sentiment smudged. Managed to rub some off but I could still see it so out came the pearls.

  7. Gorgeous card Debby.
    I ordered a few stamps, but this one really caught my eye, with the same thought of quick Christmas cards.
    Just waiting for them to arrive then I can play too, I only hope I can make a card half as nice as this one is.

    Love Elaine xxx

  65. I was just thinking earlier today that I might visit your histrical blog postings to gain some inspiration for my Christmas cards this year. I remembered that you made some very striking CAS cards and - serendipity - you've made some more! They really are so striking, Debby. I'm particularly taken with your big baubles and green swirls. FAB! Hugs, Lesley
