Best Wishes To You!

Morning crafty friends, hope you're all well & enjoying the weekend so far.
Can you believe the weather's ok? Bank holidays & rain usually go hand in hand
in the UK but not this's a beautiful day here on the Yorkshire Coast, the
sun is shining, the skies are blue.....I'm sure there's a song in there somewhere!
So yesterday I spent a lovely few hours at my desk.......5 cards I made!! Don't 
think I've made that many at once for a long time......of course, one of them was
 a Christmas card so that's what I'm sharing today. 
I started with a page from one of my bargain die cut books from the Works,
I like to add some elements of my own to these so started with a base layer of
red card followed by a distressed paper layer then the background layer from the
book. Next, I added the die cut pieces, popped up on foam pads for extra height.
I added a little piece of ribbon to the tag then finished with a few die cut
silver snowflakes & faux gems.
Rightio, off to make the most of the day.....thanks for calling & whatever you're
up to......have a lovely day! See you tomorrow.
