WOOHOO IT'S FRIDAY :-).......................

Evening all!

Another very cold day here in Southend and it was soooo foggy grrrrrrr. At least it's Friday which means two lovely days to chill out and hopefully plenty of craft time yippee! So straight onto tonight's card which is a lovely stamp from Whiff of Joy. I will be entering in their Challenge for the first time tonight. I have used some lovely paper from BasicGrey "Capella" paper pad and my fave Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart.

Whiff of Joy # 92 ~ Tara's fab Sketch
I love Promarkers # 41 ~ Snowman
Simon Says ~ Sparkle
Anything Goes # 25 ~ Let it Snow ( And I think it will this week lol! )

Gorgeous card!! I wouldn't have thought to use those papers on a chrimbo card, but they work really well! Didn't realise you were in Southend - only about an hour away from me then (I'm in Blackheath, South East London - right on the A2). I'll have to give you a shout if we're down there in the summer - we went to Clacton for a week this year. Marie xx
