Keeping Warm!

When I saw the fab Sketch by Pauline for the Willow Sketchie Challenge, I thought it would be good to make another Christmas Card as I really need to get going on them. I had a look on the Willow Design Website and they have some gorgeous stamps. I love owls and couldn't resist this gorgeous stamp called 'Keeping Warm'.


The DP is Cosmo Cricket 'Mitten Weather'. Sentiment was made on computer. Ribbon is from Bunny Zoes. Pearls are from stash.

Hi Sue :)

This is smashing hun! Love the warm reds and the traditional theme. Your bow looks fantastic and the image is really cute.

Its felt like such a long, long week for me, and it will take an age to catch up I think, but its also good to see so many wonderful and inspirational projects when you have missed being around too :)

Hope you have a great weekend (we have a houseful!) lol.

hugs
