Hi folks

I've got such a small window of opportunity at the moment to make a card so I'm not getting much done at all but I've managed to do a bit of a challenge combo with this one. I think this Penny Black image is beautiful. Another birthday present (I bet you already guessed!) and I've been dying to use it for ages. I made the snowflakes myself with my cuttlebug - a bit fiddly but good fun. I can enter it for the following challenges:

Stamp Something: Cute and Fuzzy
Simon Says Stamp: All That Sparkes
Daring Cardmakers: Punches (this is my first time with this challenge)

My recipe:
Image: Penny Black - Hand Mailed
Coloured with Promarkers
DP: I'm sorry, I don't know what this is, it was a scrap and the name had gone
Cardstock: Coredinations
Deckles edged scissors
Snowflake dies
Fiskars snowflake punch
Ribbon and brads from stash
Silver Stickles
Glammour Dust

We're off to Suzanne's today for Hallowe'en. The kids will be all dressed up so we'll have great fun waiting for all the little ghosties and ghouls to knock at the door. Then it will be Strictly and the X Factor. Erin and I are having a disagreement about Ricky Whittles. I think he loves himself to bits - if he was chocolate he would eat himself but she loves him. I suppose that's the difference between being 52 and 24. Come on Tuffers!!!

Whatever you do, have a good time.
