A new challenge, and a big thank you ….


 
Hi everyone, it’s absolutely freezing here this morning. It said on the news last night that it was going to be –8, Manny got out of bed for his wee and as soon as I opened the door his ears went down and he ran back inside. He looked at me as if to say “are you joking, you want me to go outside in that temperature?” He’s back in bed snuggled up now he likes to be warm and snug, if it’s cold or wet I can’t get him out of the the door!
 
Before today’s card I’d just like to say thank you so much for all your lovely comments, I love to read them  x

It’s time for another challenge over at Lili’s Little Fairies this week and the theme is use 3 punches or dies
Make sure you have a look at what the other Fairies have made, there are some gorgeous cards to give you a few ideas
 
 
Moonlight Wishes
 
 
I actually made this card a while ago and never used it – I just wasn’t completely happy with it but as I had used lots of dies I thought I would see what everyone thinks of it as it was perfect for this weeks theme

The card and backing layers are cut with a Spellbinders grand labels one
The borders are a Spellbinders triple scallop edgeabilities die
The flourish is the Magnolia Doo Hickey heart swirl
…and the image is cut and layered with Spellbinders classic circles

I used the Moonlight Wishes stamp, it’s so cute! I cut out the little sock before I added the circle so that it was sitting outside
The papers are Papermania Henbury Lane and I also used seam binding and gems from The Ribbon Girl

Thanks for looking, hope you all have a lovely day
