I'm a Christian, married to my wonderful husband, Adrian, since 1978 (where has the time gone?). We have two children, Michael and Elizabeth who are just the best children we could have wished for, we're so blessed, and proud of them. Michael and Aisling,our daughter in law, have a daughter Bronwyne Ann. Elizabeth is married to Martyn. I use my crafting to raise funds for various charities. The charity that I'm currently sponsoring is Save The Children

A Little Bit of Christmas
I couldn't sleep last night so at 2am I was in my craft room making this card!! I'm entering it into the challenges at
The basis of this card was a tri-fold kraft card with the outer parts folded back on themselves. The papers and clear stamps are from Molly Blooms Christmas Carnival. I stamped the image and sentiment onto white card and cut them out using rectangle Nestabilities,leaving the dies in place while I inked around the cutout with Memento Desert Sand ink pad. The image was coloured using ProMarkers. I mounted them onto kraft card cut with scalloped rectangle Nestabilities and inked around the edges with Adirondack Latte ink pad, as was the card base. The paper panels had the corners rounded using a Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper.
The same paper was used on the back inside panel. Another contrasting paper was used on the small inside panels and off set on top of the darker paper on the back panel. Another panel was cut from the kraft card and stamped with a Christmas verse from Crafty Individuals
The final card fits into a DL envelope but is quite thick. I might need a large letter stamp for this one
