Santa's Little Helper!

Ooooooooo I just get so excited when the Postie delivers some
new stamps, especially of the Magnolia kind!!! So after bursting
out a squeal of excitement and Mr Postie looking at me as if
I needed to get out more often Lol, (only fellow crazy
crafters will have experienced this excitement)!!! I quickly inked
up this little cutie and set to work in creating this little card...
sorry about the picture quality it is a bit overcast today, I even
waited until today to photograph it because it was even duller
yesterday, but if I wait for the sun to break through!! who knows
when it would get published? So for this little card I have used
the new Magnolia, Santa's Little Helper Stamp and Noel, stamped
with Black Staz On, Nyars Swirl stamped with Timber Brown
Staz On and used the stitching stamp for the outside border
stamped with Versa Color, Boysenberry! (apparently a cross
between a Raspberry, Blackberry and Loganberry)!! Well I never!
Papers are from D & D Christmas Collection A5 pack,
A Winter's Tale, I have also used some fabby doo fabric
which I bought last year from Hobbycraft, they are John
Louden Quilting and Craft Bundles and they come in some
great colours. I have used this for the heart (Which is
an Anitas stamp), stamped with Black Staz On and then
cut out, I have also used a patch behind the label. All
images coloured with my water colour palette. Fairy
heart lights are from Craft for Christmas pack, silver
Christmas Tree charm is from Syntigo, wreath is made
from wired Christmas decoration from the Range, all
ribbon, string, lace and buttons are from stash, I think thats

Here's a little close up of that cutie..ooooooooooo Happy
Friday everyone and Happy Crafting, TFL Sue xx

You've done everything just right on this amazing card. Mr. Postie just doesn't understand how important it is to let out our little squeals when new stamps arrive.
