A Christmas Card

Hi Folks,

I've been lying low this week and missing out on crafting as I've had an awful cold.  I was off work sick Monday and Tuesday but I had a workshop to attend in Stirling on Wednesday so I had to pull myself together and go for it.  I'm so glad I wasn't the one driving!  I'm still coughing and spluttering a bit but I'm not nearly so bad now.  The worst of it was I wasn't able to see my Auntie at the start of the week as I didn't want to pass on my germs, but the best part is that not having seen her for a few days I saw a massive improvement in her when I did go.

On to my card, as I said before I'm a few weeks behind with Snoflake's Christmas card challenge over at Docrafts so I thought I would combine my week 7 card with the A-Z Colour challenge I'd entered.  The choice of colours for the final letter Z are Zucchini (green) Zaffre (Royal Blue) and/or Zinc (white).  I've gone for Zinc and Zucchini!

I've used a kraft card blank and added some Kanban paper which was a magazine freebie.  I've then used Memory Box Frostyville Border and Snowflake Corner Dies with white pearlised cardstock to frame a cardstock sticker from the Forever Friends Timeless Range which has also been mounted on pearlised cardstock die cut with an x-cut scalloped oval die.  The sentiment is also from the Timeless cardstock sticker set.  The only other thing I've added is a green gingham ribbon bow.  This was a really quick and easy card to make but I just love this border die!

Week 8's card coming up soon!  I'm definitely making more of an effort to catch up.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend whatever you are up to, I just hope I get rid of this cough before Monday comes around again!  Night night xx
