Meet Joel!

Well after he was dropped through my letterbox Kay, you were right - I couldn't resist those eyes and I just had to try him out. Hope you like him too!
I use this brand new Toodles and Binks stamp for two challenges combined (I apologise, but still playing catch up-don't like combining!)

Lots to Do challenged us to emboss this week, what better reason did I have to use my much loved Cuttlebug folders, both for the Scalloped circle cut with a Nestabilities die, and my good ol' Sizzix snowflake, layered with a CB snowflake.
BasicGrey Challenges wants us to to do some stitching this week, faux or real....so I did a bit of both. I LOVE stitching on my cards, I think it gives such a great texture but time was against me (isn't it always) so the hand stitching is minimal. Again I used scraps of some old BG papers, Sugar Plum from the Blitzen collection.
