Full of Surprises

Good morning all. I hope that you are having a lovely weekend. It is a glorious sunny day here in Devon - lovely.

Here is a card that I made yesterday:

Items used:
Clearly Besotted 'Full of Surprises', Sizzix E.F, Stampin Up 'Finishing touches' Edgelits and ink, Gell pen. I have added a few layers with decoupage.
A while ago I bought some little Stampin Up ink spots which are about the same size as Vera Color ink pads. I bought the small one to test them and they stamp brilliantly. They have such lovely names like 'Rich Razzleberry' and Pumpkin Pie' - fabulous!! They are now on my 'wish list' in the big size. Which reminds me I must get a longer piece of paper for my 'wish list' !!

I have a beef and tomato casserole cooking in my slow cooker so I can indulge in some more crafting today - Yay!!  ( Stuff the housework! )

Hope you have a fab day TTFN.

  1. Oh what a lovely and very happy card Eve, I roared with laughter here about 'stuff the housework' :) on that we are united!

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Gorgeous card Eve, love the traditional Christmas colours and the fab detailing on the image. The embossed background really stands out and the whole card really pops!

    Thank you so much for the lovely comment you left on my DigiStamp Boutique card, you are too kind ♥


  3. I love your little individually wrapped prezzies on your card. Good job the Elf has already gone up North else he would have unwrapped them! Hugs Mrs A.

  4. Great snippets card, Eve! I love the movement which definitely says "Surprise!" As for wish lists, I no longer call mine a wish "list." It's a wish BOOK spanning several pages!! Have a great Sunday! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Ohhhh, great idea about the slow cooker meal. I should give that a try on crafting days!

    Fun card with great festive colours!
