Sentiment only

Hello all you wonderful bloggers, I hope you are all well today and, if not, are soon on the mend.  Nothing on the baby front yet - my second grandchild was due last Saturday but remains reluctant to make an appearance.  I think Melissa would like to get cracking (not literally) as soon as possible as Christmas is fast approaching. I will keep you posted.

Today I have gone for a sentiment only card which I made a while ago:

Trouble is when you make cards a while ago you can't remember the details - hold on while I go have a look ......!   Ok back again. The sentiment is either Penny Black or Hero Arts I have lost the package - that was helpful wasn't it?  The paper is by First Edition from the Christmas Village Collection. I have used a Spellbinders die from the Exquisite Circles set.  Used a corner rounder on all the edges and the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girl - Christmas

Well I still have a couple of lingering presents to buy so I may pop into Preston today as I am fast running out of free days.  I can't believe it is only 9 days until we go to Las Vegas so I need to get everything ready by then, still have one DT card left to do as well!

Thanks for looking today and please take care xx

This is a beautiful card Susan, so elegant.
Babies always seem to take their time recently, I don't know any that have been on time or early, I hope it doesn't keep her hanging around.

Have a wonderful time in Vegas...Will you check out the scrapbook stores? The biggest one is fairly easy to get to and is near a Michaels and a Super
Hope you see some great shows and have some fab meals!!!

I used to love Vegas when my Husband had a convention there. I would take the bus and go all over shopping...the outlets, the scrapbook stores, the Ross dress for less and the then hit up at least 2 of the malls. Oh what fun you can have there.

Your card is so elegant. That die is just stunning!
