The backing paper is from a wad of Christmas papers I found whilst I was looking for something else, as you do! I've added a cute little penguin which I think is fromWhimsy stamps, coloured in with Copics. Cheeky little chap!

I used a black fine liner to add faux stitching and completed the card with a wooden frame featuring the "Thank you" stamped sentiment.

I had a minor disaster this week....my Big Shot, which has been my faithful friend for many a year, finally gave up the ghost! So I was a bit stuck for die cuts to make my card this week. I found a pre-cut frame in my cupboard so thought I'd use that. I stamped a pretty snowy tree image and sentiment onto black card and heat embossed these with white powder. I then stuck on the die cut frame, and added a few snowflake punchies. The black card was then ounted onto a white base card. Quite classy!

And I've treated myself to a new Big Shot, which should arrive soon!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.

I have used a freebie kit for my card today. I decided to have a go at a "suspended" card. I'm going to admit I struggled with it a bit but so glad I persevered. Only to be disappointed with myself for not lining up the suspended circle properly. However, I've landed lucky, because mt neighbour loves the card and she needed one for her daughter's 50th birthday next month, so I'm going to cover up my little mistake with a big 50!.

I've made an attempt at shabby chic. The card I actually wanted to make fell by the wayside as I needed my printer. Obviously my printer ran out of ink, no problem, I had new cartridges, but then I very stupidly pulled the chip off the cartridge! What a waste! So this was a quick thinking card. I had a rummage through my ribbons and lace and found this pompom trim and the snowflake ribbon. I put this together with a couple of stamps, stamped in Versamark ink and embossed with white powder. Finished the card off with a wooden snowflake and twill bow. I hope it's shabby enough!

Looking forward to seeing your makes.

The true test is when I'm at work, which is only a mile away but the signal there has been non-existent!

I have used an old teddy bear stamp for my card today, coloured with Prisma pencils. The stamp has flowers on the gift but I've covered them with little snowflake punchies to make it Christmassy. I love my little scruffy bear!
