More Christmas fun

Good afternoon everyone

Happy Saturday to you. My jobs are finally complete for today so I thought I would spend some time in my craft room and updating my blog. This is a card I made this week using a Penny Black stamp that I bought a while ago and hadn't yet inked up.
The stamp is called Not till Xmas which I coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens and pencils - 
  • cat - TN1, TN2, TN3, TN5, OR3 and 087
  • mice - FS1, TN3, TN5, PP1 and 100
  • presents - DR1, DR5, DR6, CT2, CT4, GB5, DG2, DG4, TB2, TB4, TB8, 068, 033 and 084
  • ground - BG1 and BG3
  • sky - IB1

The other ingredients used were - 
  • red Bazzil card
  • papers from LOTV's 'Twas the night paper pad
  • Tonic layering squares
  • Die'sire lace border 6
  • ribbon from the Hobby House
  • pearls from the Ribbon Girl
  • sentiment from LOTV's Christmas wishes stamp set (set 75)
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges - - use three or more patterned papers - anything goes (2nd entry)

Thank you so much for stopping by.



  1. It's always fun using a stamp for the first time Lesley, especially a Penny Black one - I might be a tad biased on that mind you.
