Washi tape!

Good morning to you all, don't talk too loud I have a bit of a wine headache this morning lol!

Over at Card Makin' Mamas a new challenge started the other day.  There have been a few problems with the challenge and it did not start when it should and we had to change the challenges around so I have not posted my card yet! The new challenge is washi tape well I can tell you that sent me into a real panic!  I am not really a fan of it and I didn't want to buy something that I wouldn't use again but then I remembered that I had bought some in Florida last year and dug it out! However when I dug it out it turned out to be Christmas Washi tape!! So out came all my Christmas boxes and I had to make a Christmas card - yes Chrissy I know!! Here it is:

Items Used:

Stamps - Waltzing Mouse and Molly Bloom Sentiment
Papers: October Afternoon 'Make it Merry'
Dies: Spellbinders Bauble, Marianne Tree, Memory Box Precious Stars, Cheery Lynn Expandable Tiny Borders, Lil Inker Penant Die
Embellishments: Martha Stewart Washi Tape and ribbon, gems from stash, Fired Brick DI, Clear Embossing powder - resist technique

Please go over to Card Makin' Mamas and see the rest of the DT makes, a lot better than mine!!  Thanks for looking today, enjoy your weekend! Take care xx

This is a fabulous Christmas card Susan, I love your colour combination and great die cut details.

Thank you for your kind words regarding my son, he seems a little better this morning - I just feel so helpless though, there is nothing I can do except be there for him and hand out pain killers.

I hope your headache soon goes - did you have a good night!
