Winter Friends

Hi all, we've managed to get one carpet layed just one more to go, new fridge is up and running aswell. I'm totally aching from head to toe with all of the lifting and shiofting things around, thank goodness for painkillers!!
I managed to make a card even though i've been so busy with things at home. I've used one of Marianne Designs cute stamps and you can find the full range here . I've stamped with TH brushed Corduroy DI and coloured with Promarkers and finished the image of with glitter. I've also used Marianne Design Paper and Frame & Christmas tree die cuts. All mat and layered on gold CS, used MS Eyelet Lace edge punch, spellbinders nestie to frame the image and all finished off with fabric trim and ribbon. Hope you like!!
