Winter Wonderland Week #21 - The Christmas Stocking


Hello girls. I had a lovely surprise today. Hubby went into Perth on his own this morning on business and came back with a new set of Nestability snowflakes for me (bought at Stampaholics of course). I had no idea he was going for them - he really is my best pal.
Anyway - to the card. I've decided that its time that I got some more Christmas cards done so I've opted for the Winter Wonderland challenge this week where the theme was "The Christmas Stocking". It gave me a chance to use a new stamp from Penny Black called "Xmas Mouse", coloured as usual with my Copic Ciaos. The papers are by Bo Bunny and are "Tis the Season - Snow Flakes". It's a double sided paper and I have used both sides. All the embellishments, except the sentiment, are from my stash, all purchaced at Stampaholics in Perth. The sentiment was homemade using Microsoft Word on my laptop.
I feel a bit easier now that I have a few Christmas cards up my sleeve and I hope you like this one. Please don't hesitate to leave me your views if you have time to leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.
Hugs,
Fiona x

  2. Hi Fiona
    This is so cute and I love Penny Black images too. Bo Bunny papers are a favourite, but I'm never brave enough to cut them!!

    I can't believe you live in a place called Perth.My bestie lives in Perth here in Australia, even though we have never met IRL.How coincidental.

  11. Great card Fiona, love the image, colouring and striking Bo Bunny papers. Your hubby is nice bringing you the nesties. This may sound strange but I'm glad my hubby has never done this..........he would then find out how much craft stash 'really' costs! lol.
