CR84FN40..........red,brown &kraft.

It's another great colour combo over at CR84FN, red,brown & kraft though I love these colours for any occasion it made me think of Christmas.



Here's my card:


I stamped the background label from the SU Everything Elenor stamp set onto kraft card and distressed,I then stamped the sentiment onto the embossed Sizzix Designer Frame and tore around the edge. The brown striped paper is from The Robin's Nest and the red dotty is some I've had for years which doesn't have a manufacturers name on. I punched the holly leaves out with a Martha Stewart punch and added some little red Prima flowers.Well, that's another Christmas card done, should have a nice little stash by December.
I got home yesterday afternoon after a wonderful couple of days at Lion Quays Hotel & Spa with some great friends, there was 10 of us altogether and we all had a fabulous time, just relaxing, I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of R&R. My favourite part of the spa was the snow cave in the hydro suite which was amazing, it had real snow so couldn't resist a snowball fight,such fun.

Back Soon
