its going to be a black and white christmas...

Good morning everyone are you having a fab weekend, are you doing anything exciting?...we had brill news Phil's blood pressure is going down, slowly but at least its going in the right direction...phew I'm so relieved...did you all join in my candy, if not you really need these Echo park papers I promise you they are so so lush...gorgeous colours and each side is just as gorgeous as the other too...I had a little mooch around my local craft shop on Friday, now you know its not a good idea to go somewhere like that with the mindset you need linen card for blanks don't you...well an hour later and £51 poorer I finally made it out....oooohhhh the lush papers I bought and loads of lace and ribbon and embellishments...cant wait to show you them all...oh and I did remember the linen card at the last second lol...my card for today is using the lush My Minds Eye Meadowlark paper pad, there's something really timeless about black and white isn't there and I think it works just as well for Christmas...the cute little girls are from the new Wild Rose Studio release and is called Mia Cuddles...to make the card more christmassy (is that a word?) I cut tree shapes from different papers from the pad and added some silver star brads to the tops...I finished with another of the sentiment stamps from Kaisercrafts mini stamp sets Christmas set...the paper, stamp and sentiment are all from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch I used is from Sketch N Stash challenge and I'm also entering this for the Anything Goes Simon Says Stamp challenge too...have a brilliant day whatever your up to and I hope the weather is better with you than it is here, it started raining yesterday morning and hasn't stopped since
