Deer In Skates !


I took Harrison to see 'The Lego Movie' and lunch at 'Ask' on Saturday - we were originally going to go to RHS Wisley for the butterflies, but as the weather didn't look good, so we (Harrison's friend Chloe, her brother Joshua and my friend Celia) decided it would be better to do an indoor activity and all the children loved the movie too - i on the other hand fell asleep :-). Alan has been doing a motorbike course since Friday and will be doing the test tomorrow, hopefully if his knees last that long, as he is using a smaller bike.

I have seen around blog land some different shaped cards and i thought they wouldn't go through my BigShot, but the 2 designs i've bought do - yipee and i'm using one today : Go Kreate - 'Large Frames Frilly #10', the image is : Penny Black - 'Deer In Skates ! / 2997F', the papers are : Echo Park - 'Merry Christmas / Holly Jolly', the sentiment is : LOTV, poinsettas have been cut out of pearlescent ivory and brown card using : Marianne Design - 'LR0142', i've distressed the edges with : Tim Holtz Distressed Ink - 'Tea Dye' ribbon is from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

ABC Christmas  - where the are up to 'C For Chocolate Creams'

Sparkles Christmas Challenge - where they are up to Challenge No: 37 is 'Anything Goes And Their 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 245 is 'Colours Beginning With B' - i've gone for Brown 

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - where CHNC 163 Is 'Use A Diecut Or A Punched Shape'

Hi Sam, LOVE your card - fab shape and love that deer stamp (I have that PB stamp too - one of my favs!) Lovely to meet another blogger who is a HUGE PB fan just like me - just can't get enough of them and never get tired of them. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments: they made my day :-))
