Mimosa waiting for Santa - The Stamp Basket DT

Hello!  Here I am, late again... I'm sorry I've been a bit absent for the last couple of days - I've got so much to do before we go away on Saturday, I'm crafting non-stop at the moment lol.  At the weekend I wrote myself a list of all the cards I need to make before we go, I thought it might make me feel less stressed to see them written down and getting them crossed off... when I'd finished there were 17 cards on my list and I most certainly didn't feel less stressed!  So I apologise in advance if I don't get chance to visit your blogs too often this week, I'll do my best whenever I get a spare moment.

Right, onto today's card which is for The Stamp Basket blog, where it's still 'Christmas in July' so I had to make another of them there Christmas thingies... also Janet's having a Guest DT call so pop over and read this post for all the details if you fancy applying.




Items available from The Stamp Basket



I've coloured Mimosa with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added a bit of sparkly glamour dust.  The snowflakes were cut with a MS punch and sprayed with 'spray & sparkle', not that you can tell from the photos... Added some card candy and a Stampin' Up sentiment, and everything else is from The Stamp Basket.  Oh, I used my new MFT mini scallop border die too, on the edge next to the stripy paper - it cuts beautifully.

I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday, so I'm entering my card there.

Will try and do some catching up with you all tomorrow if I don't manage it tonight.  Hope you've all had a lovely day :o)
