It's Snow joke.


I have had a "day off" today so I ventured into my little craft room to make a start on my Christmas cards.
Unfortunately I spent more time moving stuff around, putting things back in their right place, stuffing bundles of "Ebay clothes" into the big cupboard in an attempt to not feel quite so claustrophobic. It didn't really help with my creativity I am afraid.

I tried to come up with a simple card, quick and easy to make, that I could make up in bulk rather than send out shop bought cards this year......judging on how it turned out, I think I'll be going card shopping at the weekend. Not a happy bunny!


I made up a backing paper using a music stamp, distress, inked and sewed around. Layered on a snowflake, wrapped in ribbon and twine. Added a few little details and whoopie, 1 more card in my Xmas box!




This card was made using a charm to meet the requirements on the current challenge over at 
Crafts by Carolyn. come over and join the fun!

A lovely card, don't be so hard on yourself (and if it makes you feel a bit better my 'craft room' is a bit of a disaster area too) xx

I do a lot of "moving stuff around" usually hoping to find inspiration hiding under something....
This is lovely Adele, it has a lovely vintage meets modern fell about it
