My first Christmas card


Hi all I've been very quite blogging I know as I'm really busy KReating my own Christmas cards - yep done it again & left it to the last minute - though the problem is compounded by the fact that I've I sold too many at the market days I've been involved with lately.

This is relatively quick card which looks stunning with this absolutely gorgeous ribbon that just retired November 30 - it's a breeze to tie beautifully and wish I had more in my stash - this design will stop when the ribbon runs out!

Stamp set: Winter Post
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red
Paper: Kraft, Always Artichoke, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Punches: Designer label, scallop border, hand-held 1/16"
Other: Linen thread, dimensionals, Signo white gel pen, Riding Hood Red 1-¼" striped grosgrain

Well I hope your prep is all further advanced than mine. Ciao for now.
