Hello today I am sharing a Christmas card that I made for one of my friends, she has told me that it's arrived with her  so I know I am safe to post it and I know she won't mind me sharing it with you all. I am not at home this Christmas I was given a early Christmas present which I was aloud to open and was very excited to find these beautiful stamps from Cardio Stamps in side. I have only had a play with some stamps similar to these one day while visiting my friend, but i never made anything with them just messing about, But this time I have made two different cards with my lovely present for a couple of friends back home in the UK.

i would like to thank all of you for all your kind and wonderful support and lovely comments you have left me through out 2016 whilst visiting my blog a appreciate everyone of them. Here's hoping you all have a fabulous Christmas and all the very best for 2017.
Hugs Babs x

CHALLENGE # 37  Cardz4Galz it's my turn to chose the challenge  this time and I have gone with   Anyone for Cocktails I thought with Christmas just around the corner and all the Christmas party's they will be I thought it would be a good challenge to choose, hope you will pop over to Cardz 4 Galz and join in the fun, and get some inspiration from the rest of the design team and see what lovely creations they have made. I have gone with a stamped image from Stamping Bella Uptown Girls, I stamped the girls on to some white card , then I stamped them again onto patterned glitter paper I have had for a long time, then I cut them out and paper pieced them on to my first image. I stamped  celebrate with style a old stamp from Woodware  onto a piece of white card I cut from the stitched edge dies from memory box and then mounted that onto a larger stitched edge. My background paper came free with one of the craft mags some time last year. Ribbon and buttons are from my craft box
