WOW I got a card done!


Well I got totally fed up with doing my stuff for the Craft Fair and got the glossy card and Stazon out last night. Had great fun AND I remembered to wear my gloves!!

Reading through the challenges today I overstamped the background with this Penny Black sentiment stamp and further stamped with this SeeD Santa and Sleigh stamp. I then used a reindeer stencil and pounded black Versafine through it to make the bottom border. I then used a Versamark pen to outline just the outside edges and embossed with gold powder. As this card uses just one sheet of card I can enter it into this week's challenge from Stamp Something and it also qualifies for Penny Black Saturday as I have just used a Penny Black sentiment stamp.

Back down the salt mines. Have 20 candles to decorate tonight! Thanks so much for dropping by. Normal service (whatever that is) will be resumed asap!
