A peek at something amazing and talk of bargains

Thursday's posting on this blog here - Patchwork Apples - which belongs to Bubbles included some fabby secrets of where to find real bargains (in the UK) for your stash cupboard - they have all been noted for sure! BUT, if you hop over to Bubbles' blog, there's the most AMAZING Christmas House, posted on the same day - it's truly stunning! The detail is mind blowing so do go and take a peek! I know, being a Christmas girl, I just love it.....and I bet The Crafty Elf will be entranced too:) 

Anyhow, talk of bargains got me thinking about a great stamp that my friend Bernie sent me, all the way from the USA - so I inked it up and made this card - I bet we can all relate to it:

It took next to no time, just coloured with Pro Markers and then layered onto three snippets of card/paper! The patterned ones are some left from a tent card I posted on here a week or two ago - just so you know I ain't cheating :)

I'm on a roll with these snippets so am entering another card into:

Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge - week 28

So far I've only cut smallish squares and rectangles from my snippets - but, trust me, my desk is covered with little paper flowers right now ready for something else I'm thinking about. So much to make and so little time:)

Hope you're having a great weekend and make time to nip over and peek at the Christmas House. I'm beginning to feel a little swell of panic rising as I haven't done anything towards making Christmas cards yet and loads of blogs even have their owners own little progress indicators installed!

Di said...

I might just do that Sarn! Time I got a start on Christmas cards I think! Hugs, Di xxx

Bubbles said...

Di... thank you - you're so sweet!

Loving that card - the sentiment is one I can definitely relate to *lol*
Gorgeous colouring - so professional. Even with promarkers or copics I just can't seem to make a coloured page look good - think I'll stick to christmas houses for now :)

Aw Di I'm glad I sent her on to you, I knew you'd do her justice. What a great card and she still cracks me up.
Have a great weekend.
