A little bit shabby.....

Morning crafty friends & bloggers......hope you're all well & warm!
Just popping in to share another Christmas card, I think this may be my last one
for this year although knowing my lot I'm sure to hear at least a couple of
cries of 'Muummm, can you make me a Christmas card, please?'
So today's card was made using a die cut sheet from a Studio Light pad,
love these pads, so useful, so many gorgeous designs & they work very well
with lots of other papers too. I simply matted & layered a coupe of sheets,
inked the edges & added some of the die cut elements. The top layer & the tags
are all mounted onto foam pads to give some extra depth & I added a bit of
crochet trim just cos I love it lol.
Rightio, that's me for today. I'm off to do some Christmas shopping, not sure
whether to brave the elements or stay indoors & do it online so I'll go have a
 cuppa & think about it. Thanks for calling.......see you soon.
