So Here It Is Merry Christmas Aaaaggghh

Ooooh it's the middle of November and I havn't even begun to THINK about Christmas yet!! But never fear, I've got ONE card that I made  for The Stampman Challenge! I've been wanting to make a stepper card for a while so I decided today was the day.What a faff! Measuring... cutting with a craft knife... no good ever came of this, THEN sticking with foam tape - I swear as soon  as I touch foam tape everything goes on the wonk. Is this straight? yeah course it is.. NO, it's not within waving distance of straight so why have I stuck it down with that ***** tape! The only way to move it is with a chissel :o)
Anyway.... the lovely robin stamps are from The Stampman, I was lucky enough to win them in their recent blog hop. I've coloured them with Twinkling H2O's The Let it Snow is from Creative Expressions, these are clear stamps but they stamp really nicely - no squidge!
The bit at the back is a Tim Holtz mover and shaper die I really like these, you just need to work out what's top and bottom and back to front lol.
I'm really glad I made this card, but would I make another - you're having a larf!
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend x


  1. LOL re the faffing around with all the measuring!!! Wouldn't do for me either which is why I haven't made one - lol!!!!!

  2. LOL at your post......ooh am with you all the way, what a palava.
    Terrific card though and love your robins. Annette x

  3. Fabulous card, hun! You do make me laugh! I keep trying to find instructions using a score board so I don't have to measure!

  4. lol all that cutting and measuring not for me either but what a stunning card you did eventually produce x Hilda

  5. Great card, love the robins. I only ever made one step card and never again ,I do like to try "fancy" card folds but they are usually a one of.
