A Traditional Christmas

Morning all! How's your week going so far? Tis almost the weekend! I can't wait for Saturday, off the NEC I go! Tis also Bonfire night tonight, I think we're going to a local display, haven't been to a display for years!

Today I've got quite a traditional Christmas card to show. I got this gorgeous stamp in my dt kit from Elaine, called 'Two Turtle Doves'. You can buy it here, and since Elaine is having 10% off at the moment, it's a bargain! The actual stamp is a heart shaped bauble with holly then this cutie inside but I masked the bauble off and just used the main image this time.

For the layout I've used the fab sketch over at Cupcake Craft Challenges this week and I'm also going to enter into the Belli Challenge who want to see raffia or twine.

Stuff: Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Two Turtle Doves stamp here, copics to colour, Basic Grey Wassail paper here, liquid pearls in silver pearl here, SU sentiment, twine from stash, pin from stash, charm from here, tulle in french vanilla here.

Here's a little image close-up:~

I think that's it from me today! Hopefully have something else to show you tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you might leave me-love hearing from you! xxx
