A CARD FOR SIS...............................XX

Evening al!!

Blimey another bitterly cold day in Essex and is it ever going to get warmer!. Going by the weather reports it's a big fat NO and Spring seems along way away boohoo!
Anyway, I had a lovely day hiding in my little craftroom and for once didn't stamp one image lol!. I have used Digistamps and it made  a refreshing change. It was a such a quick, easy and cheap way of increasing your stash ( well sort of, depends how many you buy hehehe) and you have soooo much choice.
So onto tonight's card I have used a lovely image from DigiStamp Boutique. Meet Beau, I think she is gorgeous and I have made this card for my little Sis Toni, who's Birthday is next week. I have used one of my fave pads "Cappella" from BasicGrey and my fave flower punch NS "Poinsettia" (again lol!)

This sweet image is going into the following challenges :-
Friday Sketchers # 131 ~ Fab Sketch
Creative Card Crew ~ Anything Goes
DigiStamp Boutique ~ December Competition

Winter Beau ~ DigiStamp Boutique

Wow, it's getting very exciting now lol!, I think Sunita copped it last night with Molly so who is the next victim?, I think it might be poor Ashley.

Take care all and stay warm,
