Another Christmas Card

I've been on bit of a roll this weekend and I've completed three cards. This is a Christmas card for my Auntie Jayne. I have used a stamp from Magnolia's 2007 winter kit club. The dp is by DCVW which was reduced and the pink stars I made from metal magic and then used a punch.
Thanks for looking :0)

Friday Sketchers Challenge

I've been busy entering lots of challenges this week, really enjoyed myself. Here is my entry for the Friday sketchers, I did change the layout slightly.
I had bit of a shock this afternoon. Desborough is a very quiet place but not so this afternoon. My Mum is on holiday and so I went to water her garden as I walked out of her house there was a several armed police officers outside. They said good afternoon and then asked where I was going, then asked me to get into my car quickly drive off up the other road. The police helicopter has been flying over for at least an hour, just goes to show I thought I lived in a very quiet little town.
