penny black card

these papers are lovely, made an easel card not sure i'm into these cards but i will be making my christmas orders in this style.

my spellbinders snowflake 2010 arrived and i really wanted to use it on my card, cut the snowflake out and then to find it was to small, so ive cut another one, and cut it up then using the spellbinders circle dies i stamped the image and coloured in with my copics
ribbon with a knot.
sizzix die tag for the greeting, and spellbinders off cuts for the snowflakes.
also after putting it all together i have used star dust stickles to sparkle up my snowflake

being really lazy at the moment

i just dont feel like doing much at the moment, i'm going to post a card, i've not even finished hoping that i might be bale to get my mojo back and get on with it.

i think its 75 days to christmas, and there's lots to do. Ive got orders to do, hopefully i will be abl to get some of this done when in Scotland.
Then it will be realy getting down to some serious card making, as I will have orders to do then, and i dont want to be rushing to my family's cards

They are from poundland i think theres 6 in the box for £1. used penny black stamp and spellbinders snowflake 2010

its not very exciting, but i did want to play along with the challenge, as i've not really had much crafting time this week

Not long now!!!

OOO Scotland isn't far off now, hubby has been very kind and given me £50 to spend, but I just don't know what to get it with it.
I'm not allowed to have any of the crafting bits till we are in scotland :(
i know I want the spellbinders eyelet circle die. hmm... what else do i need??

I've just purchased some more lovely flowers from wild orchid crafts, naughty really as i've not yet used the ones hubby bought me ages ago, but thats because i've not got the colours right... so hopefully now i will be able to use them.

Day off tomorrow so i'm going to have a go with the penny black challenge, and I also need to meet my twin for Lunch, and then CSW in the afternoon.

have a great weekend!!
