Bijou Christmas

Evening all!  Phew, what a day!  My boss is on holiday now until the kids go back to school, and it has been manic.  First day back after the weekend and I am shattered already.  Mind you, that could have a lot to do with not sleeping well for the last two nights.  I am hoping that "dead on my feet" will ensure a decent night's kip tonight.

I'm well into my Christmas card making now, ahead of schedule for a change, but as the majority of my cards need to be posted, and UK postage is now so scary, I have gone for bijou cards this year - small and uncluttered, to try and keep some of the costs down.  Here is another one of those...

For this little one (6x4 card base) I have used
Lili of the Valley's Polar Pair
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Matted on a layer of Bo Bunny Double Dots paper
Sentiment is Personal Impressions
Woodware Snowflake punch and a pink pearl from stash

And before anyone asks, yes, of course I ordered some of the new release from Lili!  I'm really quite excited about a new batch of rubber plopping onto the doormat, especially as it will contain the new James the Bear stamps.  Do you think I need to get out more?  Nah, I'm happy here!
At Dorte's request I am entering this in the ABC Christmas Challenge
Q is for Quick (even though it wasn't!)

Hugs, Squirrel xx

PS.  I have candy on offer in case you missed the post - link to it is in my sidebar

No need to leave the house Squirrel when you have brand new LOTV stamps to play with! Well, I wouldn't anyway - lol!
Gorgeous CAS card - I think I need to try this approach for my Christmas cards this year. Bijou is the way forward :-)

Big hugs, Kat x
