Out with the old and in with the new

Hey everyone,

It's been a lovely day here in sunny Stoke. We had an early start as we had to be up and ready for the delivery of our new garden table and chairs. I absolutely love them...we have used them already for an impromptu bbq :)

When we went shopping for a parasol base I just nipped in to the craft shop and they had the Frostyville border that I have been after for weeks so obviously I had to get it...(and another) and when we got back my Amazon order arrived so I have more goodies to play with.

So my card for today is my first Christmas card using a Lili of the valley stamp (Together at Christmas).
It was coloured with promarkers and has Marianne creatables snowflake die cuts, red gems, xmas red stickles and papers and paper lace trim from stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

(die cut/free/glitter)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will call again,

  1. Can you say, "adorable?" What a great way to use some of those new toys! This image is so sweetly colored and looks fabulous with the papers you used! Great embellies, too! Thanks so much for joining us at The Sweet Stop this week!

  2. Well Lou you have made great use of your new stash. Love the card. Those goodies look very tempting, can't wait to see what you do with them!
    And the garden furniture, I would give my right arm for at the minute.We gave ours to our daughter meaning to replace them but haven't gotten round to it yet. Ah well, maybe next year!
