From our home to yours...

Hello Folks!  So it seems summer has started, I'm not one for the heat (I think I may have mentioned that I'm an Autumn/Winter girl) so I shall be cracking open the Sunscreen factor 50+, drawing the curtains and more or less going into hibernation...yes I really do dislike the heat THAT much!  So to celebrate my love of cold weather I'm sharing a Yule card today.

  • Annamarie Designs black card
  • Christmas papers from my stash
  • Creata silver mirri card
  • Kanban Topper, Frame and Sentiment from Foil Play 
  • Black ribbon from my stash
  • Brads from my stash
  • Noor! Design dies
  • Creata silver Silky card
Close of die cuts and bow.
