Holiday Delight

I've really enjoyed playing with some delightful stamps from Penny Black's latest Winter release....


A lot of dimension....

Supplies: Stamps - Penny Black 'Holiday Delight', 'Peace On Earth' & 'Winter Fairy' / Tools - Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Standard Circles'; MFT Die-namics 'Sentiment Strips'; Provocraft Embossing Folder 'Seeing Spots' / Other - Copic Sketch Markers

We still haven't completed on our house (problems further down in the chain) but we are in no rush :)

Certain things that took place at my brother's wedding last week have left me (& my family) feeling very low, I cannot see any resolution & I'm finding it difficult to accomplish anything at the moment :(

I hope you all have a great weekend x

Family can just burden your soul so much sometimes. I think nothing is more maddening and inescapable. On the bright side, you have probably until Thanksgiving for it all to quiet down!
Love your card. The black and white frame really is a wonderful foil to the gorgeous image inside!

I am soooo sorry to hear that Stephanie. Weddings are "supposed"to be a time of such joy and happiness. unfortunately you will no doubt have this joyous occasion marred. Honestly hope and pray a solution will present itself and this too will pass.

House selling is darn difficult at the minute - ours also fell through recently - I am praying for all I'm worth!!

beautiful creation - a little different which I like!!

chin up sweetie!!xx

I love looking at your cards and this is no exception. I bought a stamp from across the pond the other week and it said "Don't let yesterday use up too much of today" and apparently it is a Native American Proverb. Perhaps you could hold onto this saying.

Enjoy your weekend.

I've always adored your colouring, it was one of the first things I noticed on your old blog. How absolutely perfect it is.
So sorry to hear things haven't been too good lately. I'm sure if it's meant to be it'll resolve itself.
Enjoy the extra time before the move!
