In Stitches Christmas

Hello everyone :o)

I couldn't resist this stamp set from Clearly Besotted - it's my first purchase from there and I'm sure it won't be my last.  This little card was part of an order, just simple ones for a little girl to give to her friends.  Anyone who's expecting a card from me - I must apologise in advance... most of my cards for posting will be very simple, because most of them haven't been made yet!  I've been so disorganised because of all the orders, so the next few days are going to be very busy while I try to get all of my own cards finished.  I've said this every year, but I really MUST be more organised next year!

Items Used
3" x 5" cards - cardstock from Papermill Direct
In Stitches Christmas stamps & dies - Clearly Besotted
Memento inks in Rhubarb Stalk & Toffee Crunch
Sentiment tag stamps - LOTV
(name is computer generated - pharmacy font)
Twine from my stash
Glossy accents (for the nose!)

We've been back to the hospital with Dex today, just to get his head checked again - he's fine, no stitches or anything needed.  Then, as our appointment was so early, we went for breakfast (I'm still full now lol), and then came back and cleared out loads of the kids toys so we could put the tree up... might take a photo of it tomorrow, it looks very pretty.  So tired now though!

Hope you all have a lovely evening... my fave's gone on the X Factor, so I'm not too bothered who wins, will watch it anyway of course :o)

Now this is just stunning! I don't know how so few elements can look so fab but it does! This is going straight on my Pinterest and those cute stamps are going straight on my wish list!
The font is right up my street too as I am a pharmacist!
Big hugs, Kat xx
