Happy Christmas Die!!

Hello my lovely crafty friends, and what a thoroughly horrendous day it is here in Dorset.
 Blowing a gale, bucketing down with rain and the floods have returned ;0(

However being a "cup half full" type of gal I've spent a happy few minutes in the work room and made a Christmas card to add to my pile.


A very simple affair using my new MB die, some scraps of paper, twine and a brad.

I was inspired by these challenges

Christmas Cards All Year Round - Blue and White
CHNC Challenge #162 - Spots and/or stripes
Jingle Belles - Text me
My Mums Craft Shop #14 - Spots and Stripes
Fab 'n' funky #202 - Brads (just the one, hope it's OK)

Anyway, that's it for now folks. Thanks for your company.

 Surprise is lame today so I'm off to wait for the vet to arrive...hope she has a boat!!

See you soon xx

I absolutely love this gorgeous CAS design! The frosty blues are fab and this die is top of my list for Christmas cards this year!
The only good thing about this terrible weather is that it's the perfect excuse for staying indoors and crafting :-)
Big hugs, Kat x
