This one's for you Deids!

Woohooooo... in a short while I'll be going on leave for a month and I plan to craft and play A LOT, so watch this space!!!  I just had to post this little card today.  It was made for my friend Deidré as part of her Christmas present. I left it blank so that she could either keep it or pass it on to someone special!  From the look on her face, I think she'll be keeping this one - hehe. She mentioned something about framing it!  I'm just pleased she's thrilled with it, as it was such a joy to make.  I really won't bore you all with the ingredients I used to make this card, as I think you're all totally clued up with what I've used.  But if you have a query, just pop me an email and I'll gladly answer it for you.  I just hope you think it's as pretty as much as I do. All comments will be appreciated.  Here's another view taken from a different angle and then I'll add the inside to the card as well.

I ordered some Whiff of Joy stamps through my friend Paola at Paola's Paper Haven and she informs me that they have finally arrived!!! I am so excited (jumping up and down) as it has come at the right time (start of my leave), so I can't wait to receive them, ink them and colour them in.  As mentioned previously, watch this space....   I think I'll enter this card for the Just Magnolia challenge, seeing that it meets the criteria of It's Christmas.

That's it for now folks until next time.  Have a fabulous weekend.  Some of my blog buds are experiencing cold, snowy weather whilst we are melting from the heat in Cape Town.  Wrap up warmly girls, nice time to stay indoors and craft, don't sit too close to that fire now.  Tons of hugs and blessings... Sharon xx  Christmas is just around the corner, can you believe it!!
