Stocking !


Sorry for the lack of post and commenting - only i have struggled a little this week, as we going away on Sunday for 4 days to Valencia (as it's half term) and i've had to do my DT cards for the start of November and time seems to have passed me by.  H has gone to Arundel Castle today with school and he was so excited about going, he woke up at 5.30am - eek, i guess he is going to ratty later, so he'll be going to bed early :-)

Today's card is using an image that i so love, but have never got round to using, the paper is : LOTV - 'Krafty Christmas', i dug out an old die cut for the large snowflakes : Cuttlebug - 'Ice Crystal', the punched edge is : MS - 'Skyland Snowflake Deep Edge Punch' - both are embossed with 'Crystal' embossing powder and highlighted with liquid pearls, the ribbon is from : 'The Ribbon Girls'.
