Christmas




I love this Victorian Carollers image from Paulette at Tlc and have used it a few times now, teamed with a die from Crafter's Companion and my favourite circle shape.

A really miserable morning here, cold and dreich  in comparison to yesterday I am so tempted to light the wood-burner for a few hours.

You wouldn't think you could actually see the merriment and smiles on the silhouetted characters, but you really can! What a fun card! I love the movement shown by the music notes.

Hi Meg, just noticed your message on BBB, thanks for letting me know.
I did know in fact in the morning and spent ages trying to work out how to fix it. Eventually managed it. What a pain as this is the second time it's happened. Kate x x

Oooo, this card is eye candy. And there’s something nostalgic and Charles Dickens like about the design. It’s gorgeous.
