Welcome to the midweek lull between Christmas and New Year!


Hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and Boxing Day ... now, what to do between now and New Years Eve besides try to polish off that MONSTER turkey! What's your favourite way to eat leftover turkey? In our house we're partial to both turkey sandwiches and turkey curry so ... I expect at least two meals will consist of those ... but we only bought a turkey crown this year (there's only the two of us).

Another way to fill in the lull is to hit the ToC ..... especially if you got new stash from Santa (or one of his little elves!)

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 300gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two white card panels cut to fit
  • One piece of navy card cut to  mat
  • Creative Expressions (CEC830 Faded Fauna borders) stamped using Versafine majestic blue ink
  • Paper Artsy splatter (HPXT01) stamped using Memento London fog ink
  • Happy Little Stampers sentiment (Mixed Media Fun) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Narrow white grosgrain ribbon attached (between the two border images) using double sided tape
  • The image panel was attached to the navy panel using dimensional foam tape, whilst still easily fitting in to the standard postal rate (I checked!)

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. CASology - challenge No. 280 - KINDNESS
  2. Through The Craft Room Door - December 26th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Lemon Shortbread - challenge No. 57 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. The Corrosive Challenge - challenge No. 12 - ANYTHING GOES

I got stash (hard to believe I know but ....) fab stash at that - wanna see?

This was from hubby ... we have a budget and he SWEARS the C.E. images were BOGOF
And I belong to a private group where we exchange craft related Secret Santa gifts and this was mine - THANK SO MUCH SECRET SANTA, lovely gift

Those CE stamps look great Kathy and love what you have done with them, and the pretty ribbon across the middle of the stamping looks really pretty. Lovely new stamps from Hubby, and a wonderful secret Santa gift too. I can see why you couldn't wait to use some of it. x
