Hi Sam

Hope you manage to rid your house of the lurgy before Christmas!! So many nasty germs going around at the moment.

Loving your card. Great backing papers. I bought these years ago but made the mistake of getting the 12 x 12 size .. .. some of the patterns are just far to big for my little cards!!! LOL!!!

Have a lovely day and stay warm.

Love Jules xx

Hi Sam,
fabulous card I love the colours and the image is adorable...Hope your Hubby is feeling better so many nasty things about...
Thank you for your lovely comment and to answer your question the Go-Kreate die won't work with a Big Shot as it is a large die and needs an A4 plate so I use the Grand Calibur for them and a big shot for the smaller one's,Go-Kreate do lots of lovely dies....
