Some Exciting News - And a quick card!

Evening all, hope you're all keeping warm and enjoying your weekend.
Today I have some exciting news to share, I have been chosen to join the lovely talented ladies over at The ribbon Reel as a DT member, yippeee!!!!!
Be sure to visit the blog if you haven't already, as there is a great 'Pastel Christmas' challenge on with a fab prize for the lucky winner. A £10 gift voucher to spend in store on goodies of your choice. The store has an extensive range of ribbons, trims flowers and embellishments, perfect for all your creations, you can find the store here.

So with the good news shared, onto my card, I made a very similar card a few weeks ago (in fact I have made 5 in total!) as a neighbour had ordered cards suitable to send to his sons, he didn't want anything too fussy or flowery, so I went for more of a CAS theme.
The baubles are from a Christmas stamp set, stamped in clear ink and embossed with Sea Foam embossing powder. Ribbon is from my local haberdashery and the tiny bows are hand made, yes I have managed to thread a needle! The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the White cardstock has been embossed using my Snowflake embossing folder, hope you like it!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Hi Sarah thanks for being a follower of my blog and for your kind comments on my Tradional christmas card with the penny black image You asked about the papers. They are from a 12x12 pad from Papermania Home for Christmas but they do make them n different sizes. The Mr & Mrs Santa the card I did after on my blog is also from the pack and as of excellent quality and very well priced. The Craft card you asked about is a Card blank from Crafts both of these items I bought from Hobby Craft. The card is actually 6x6. Hope this answers your question. Hugs Sue xx
