A quick one

I'm in a right tailspin now - under two weeks to go to the big day and I am sooooooo not ready for it.  I don't know what's happened to me this year, normally I am much better organised than this.  It doesn't help that the post office have made the "last posting dates" earlier than normal, which means I have already missed a lot of the overseas ones!

Thankfully I have no need to post my card to mum and dad as they are only 15 mins away!  I made this card on Sunday.  I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with it, just that I wanted it to be big.  So starting with an 8x8 card base, I sat and scratched the fur for a while and then it just sort of happened.


I've used some Lili Die-Cuts for this as is was really too dark to be painting, which could explain why some of the elements (particularly the Merry sentiment) are on the squiff.  It was really too dark to be playing!  Anyway, with some magazine freebie papers, a Penny Black stamp and Papermania's Relationships stamps this is what I came up with.  Woodware Holly brads and HunkyDory Diamond Sparkle gems were the final touches.  It's not the most sophisticated card I've ever made, and not the most elegant, but mum and dad will love it anyway.

Hugs, Sxx
