Carol singing...

Hi everyone, today I have a Lili of the valley card to share with you. I bought this stamp when I was at the secc the other week and as I said the other day I seem to have some sort of obsession with lamp posts???! Not sure why but they just seem very christmassy. Ive used more papers from my first editions pad, these really are such lovely papers, but starting to run out now so may have to get another pad. I will be back soon with a few more Krista smith (saturated canary) images, she had a new release on monday and I bought 1 or 2, ok, maybe it was more like 5! but that was me being good!! So Im off to print them out and get colouring.

So here is todays card,

Hi Kat, another gorgeous card - wonderful image (love the sparkle!) and such pretty paper. The little bells add a wonderful finishing touch. Is the shape you've used for the image a nestie? Which one is it, if it is - I love the shape of it. Sarah

PS - Ummmm I also was a bit naughty yesterday ;-) But not quite as naughty as you, I only got 4 not 5!!!
