What a fantastic day out we had yesterday. It was hubby's day off and this is the last week of the school holidays up here so we decided to make the most of it and get out and about. We wrote down 4 locations and then checked out the weather forecast for all of them and plumped for Ullapool, a harbour village, in the North West surrounded by hills and mountains. It was a good choice, the sun was shining and the scenery was stunning. On the way home we opted for a different route that meant going a bit further North then coming inland through Sutherland on single track roads. I really enjoy driving so it was good fun for me!
Today's card is another Christmas one I put together a couple of days ago and was quick to do as it's mostly die-cutting, I find with cards like this that getting the cardstock out of the intricate die is the most time consuming bit of it!
The papers used are Papermania Home For Christmas 12x12's, which I got as a present last Christmas from one of my pals. The scalloped heart die and border punch are by X-cut and the other is Winter Birds by Marianne. Some gingham ribbon, card candi and gems and that's about it.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
