A Christmas Case!

I often look at this blog because America makes lots of cards using House Mouse stamps. If you scroll down the page, you will see the card I have CASED. Both Leigh and I think it is a beautiful card and one a little different to the traditional Christmas card. So using what I have in my stash, this is my version!

The picket fence and leaves are Martha Stewart punches, the house stamps are Martha Stewart, the scallop edge punch is Stampin' Up! as is the gold embossed tree from the Season of Joy set.

The wording is from a Papermania clear stamp set.

Tomorrow I am off to stay with my Mum for a few days and also to go to my grandson's birthday party. He especially wanted to talk to me yesterday to ask me if I was coming LOL!! How could I not go - even if it is a six hour drive to get there!

The new house is progressing well. Things like the sink, wash basins, towel rails etc were going in today so not long now before we can move in. I can start filling up my craft cupboards and drawers now if I want to!
