Christmas Emporium Graphic 45

first off a HUUUUUGE THANK YOU to the gorgeous Dyan Reavely for sending me a winning prize of a set of her fabulous stamps!!!!!
i absolutely love them .... i promise to dip my toes into 'your world' soon Dyan!!


ok .... i have actually made something that was NOT t!m designed!! LOL!

i had a bit of a break for a week or so as i got a bit of craft-block, and have been fighting off man-flu!!

i recently stumbled across Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium papers and fell for them immediately!!

[i couldnt resist adding a little bit of distressing and tim's vintage lace -- my latest favourite!]

paperartsy stamp sentiment

again a paperartsy sentiment
- another newly found love!

as with all of my cards recently, these will be given to the Sussex Beacon charity
