You're the Best

Cooooooooooooooooooey :)


I'm still skidding along, in what might be politely described as a By The Seat Of My Pants Fashion. (Things are that hectic, I can't remember the last time I cleaned my Copics, and you know how hot I am on that!!) Next time you hear me say anything, even vaguely, along the lines of 'I like being busy', you get one of those frozen Bleurgh Mince Pies I've previously mentioned, and throw it at me. ;)

So, before I absently scroll down the To Do List, I thought I'd quickly share a card I made for Making Cards Magazine, using some rather delish goodies from Dies To Die For. Talking of Making Cards Magazine, the latest issue went on sale on Friday. It's full of festive (A-HEM!! Sorry, tickle in my throat.) makes, including projects with foil, vellum, tricks with acetate and gorgeous colouring. And you see that Dexter the Penguin on the cover? Yeah, that's me! Well, not literally, you understand. Obviously it's Dexter the Penguin, but you know...

Faye - I soooooo know how you feel!
Your card today is totally adorable. These pesky gnomes are still in my 'to colour' mountain! Your beautiful card is totally inspirational so I must add them to my 'to do' mountain too! Have a good week.

Hmm, I always say I prefer working under pressure but it's always all or nothing! Love your wee leap frogging gnome, so cute. I need the vellum ideas, recently unearthed a mountain of the stuff! Have a great day, crack on with the to do list xx
