Cheers


I was in a bit of strop making this card I wanted to use the stitched fishtail banners but I can't find them anywhere. They're in a long cream envelope and I know they made their way back from the retreat weekend. This meant the idea in my head was never allowed to work out and I couldn't think of anything else.

You couldn't get any simpler. The image is of course Penny Black To a Full Stocking and I've used a new stamp that was set ahead of Simon Says Stamp Believe in the Season but arrived when I came back from the retreat its call Christmas Essentials but what a perfect sentiment for my critters. I've now got the dies for this stamp set and maybe a few new ones.

I've used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles, just as well since its so plain. A bit of Doodlebugs twine job done. Well almost I had to layer them too.

Sorry this was a bit late was in two minds to bother to blog the card, then it wasn't photo and typically the last few days have been sunny and the day I want to photo its dark, dank and dreary.

Your hedgies are so cute and such fun and the paper and sentiment look great with them. I hate it too when I can't find something, it is so frustrating, but this is a very pretty card Debby and I'm sure the banners will turn up. x

Fab card Debby, even if it's not what you had planned! Hope your dies turn up sooner rather than later, it's maddening when they go on the missing list.
