Sweet Christmas Wishes And Button & Bow Wreath


I hope you are all well and keeping going during this lockdown, well today is the start of a great Challenge, run by the lovely Maureen and ends on the 30th April, a perfect excuse to fill your time and make a Christmas card Rudolph Days Challenge

Originally I was only going to make one card for this month's Challenge, as I was running out of time before I went to Cuba - obviously not realising what was going to happen a mere one week later, when all flights and holidays were grounded by the UK government !!, so here is the card I made :

Image : Penny Black - 'Sweet Christmas Wishes / 1996 (the original wooden stamp)'
Papers : First Edition - 'Stocking Fillers'
Die : Poppy Stamps - 'Stacked Gingerbread / Style No: 1309'

So for my second card has been created during Lockdown and an image I push round the drawer usually, not knowing what to do with it !! : 

Image : Penny Black - 'Button & Bow Wreath / 921D / 1996'
Sentiment : Penny Black - 'Winer Wonders / 30-087 / 2011'
Papers : Bo Bunny - 'Dear Santa Collection'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, above all 'Stay Safe', Luv Sam x

Birthday Bonanza


Back in February I joined a Stampin' Up fundraiser for the wildlife of Australia, after the bushfires, at the time I only made 1 card, but managed to stamp some other images, normally I never get round to finishing off any projects, but since we have been on lock down, I thought it gave me a good opportunity / excuse to have a play - not my normal thing, as I like to stamp and colour in with my Copics, but gave me a chance to top up my Birthday cards,

Thanks for looking and please stay safe, Luv Sam x
