Digi Stamp give away at The Stamp Basket

I didn't think I was ever going to get on my blog today!  Dex is still poorly and it's so hard to get anything done - he wants my attention all the time and I've been sooo tired today, so I think I'm about to come down with it too. I just hope we'll have it all out of the way by Christmas, fingers crossed!

For my card today I've used the new digi stamp from The Stamp Basket, which you can get free by suggesting a name for the little elephant character, or by donating to a fundraiser for a little boy called Brandon and his family.  You can see the full details of how to get the free image here.

Items available from The Stamp Basket:
Digi stamp - Love Came Down at Christmas (free until tomorrow at 5pm)
Craftwork Cards scalloped edge card blank
Deco Art glamour dust in crystal
Dovecraft adhesive gems
Red polka dot button
Burlap twine - red

I thought I'd make a simple embossed card - mainly because I wasn't functioning well enough to put papers together lol.  And I need to start using my embossing folders anyway, I always forget about them.  I've coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added lots of glamour dust.  Wooden snowflake from my stash, covered in glossy accents and then glamour dust, with a spotty button and red twine.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Sorry for my lack of commenting - I'm going to catch up a bit tonight, assuming Dex stops shouting us upstairs for his nose wiping... sigh!
