You know what they say about checking first.........!

Some of us never learn do we? 

Before :-

After. Spot the difference?

Yes you guessed I stuck it on upside down. Never learn do I? The last time my card could have opened from the left but this one was completely upside down. So nothing else to do but convert my card to an easel  card. No wonder it sometimes takes ages to make a card. I had to cut out another snowflake, well after I figured out which die I had used in the first place since I found the first one in a tub of snowflakes I'd cut out ready to use.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment and candi :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
DP :- K&Co.
Corners :- Whimsy.
Snowflakes :- Marianne Designs.
Glamour Dust.

Challenges :-
Penny Black :-Cute Christmas.
Penny Black and More at Allsorts :- Any Die Will Do.
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge :- For a man or boy.
Pink Elephant :- Punches/dies.
Christmas Challenges with sketches :- Sketch plus add stitching.
Cards for Men :- Anything Goes.
Crafty Cardmakers :- More than one punch &/or diecut. Snowflake die, Whimsy corner die, nesties, reverse corner punch.
Stampin' for the Weekend :- All stitched up.

Thanks for looking and I'd best check up the last of this weeks entries at Totally Gorjuss since I've been out two nights in a row.

See you tomorrow with my latest DT card.

  8. The times I've done that Kat, with me it's usually sidewards.

    It's another lovely creation for the Christmas box, I'm thinking that box is getting pretty full now.
