Simon Says Christmas in August!



Hi, guys! The house is slowly getting back to normal - spending most of a fortnight away is great, but if you leave your daughter at home there will be consequences. Ie heaps of laundry beside the washing machine and a factory's-worth of cosmetics scattered over the bathroom. However, I think we're getting there, the ironing mountain has been reduced to a small hill.

On to the card! The image is Penny Black, isn't he cute? I stickled AND glamour-dusted the fur trim and bobble on his hat, and also the double snowflake, which is made with two Marianne dies. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, the sentiment is Lili of the Valley. The bright papers are from my 'Christmas'n'card' snippets box - yes I have begun sorting my scraps, though the other box is just labelled 'Other Box.'

And that, as they say, is that.

I'm going to enter the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, which is Christmas in August.

I can't find my Promarker list - and I have a confession to make. You know the new Spectrum Noir pens from Crafter's Companion? I've ordered some. Have a look at Jacqui Dennis's blog and see how she uses them. Or just trot over anyway, she is an inspiration!

'K, time to make a cuppa before shower and bed.

Thanks for looking!

Luv, Mags x
