I'm back!...& with a challenge card..

Hi Guys..We're back from our holidays :) as usual Florida was fab & the kiddies always really enjoy the Disney parks, we really did have a wonderful time! I experienced the Black Friday madness for the first time, which was absolutely AMAZING!!..although not so good for the bank balance! here we are posing with all our bargains...lol..


The only thing that I was disappointed with this time was the craft shopping..I usually come back with a whole suitcase full of goodies but this time I only managed one small carrier bag full. I'm not really sure why but they seemed so behind us there, most of the things I saw had already been released here for a long time & the prices weren't amazing either..strange huh?..

Anyway I needed to head in to the craftroom today to make some more Christmas cards to post out..I managed to get 24 cards made for friends (pretty simply ones I have to admit!..lol..) & I also played along with the Lili of the valley challenge, the challenge was to use punches or dies on your creation, I used a new Martha Stewart punch I bought in USA, its the snowflake 'stamp & punch' system (I've not seen them here???) but anyhow it's actually pretty cool, as you can see from the pic it adds just a small inked border around the snowflakes when they're punch out...I like it a lot! :o)

here's my card...

Looking forward to catching up with you all properly soon!

Thanks for looking!

24 cards in one day!!! Wow, that is some going. This one is lovely. I love the bright colours. I'm glad I'm not the only one who heads for the craft shops when on hols. Much to hubby's dismay!
