Dashing Santa

These fun tags are for my sons,  they will be receiving a small gift as well as cash . I don't feel that it's Christmas if they don't have a parcel to open.

To The One I Love

This is the type of card which would appeal to my husband, he has no sense of romance at all and loves anything humorous. The image is suspended on the twine and is intended to move when touched ?? increasing my images hangover.

Autumn Colours

Digital Stamp from Mo Manning
Papers a free gift with Simply Cards and Papercraft

I love warm autumn colours they are more subtle than bright summer tones.However I struggled with the colours on both the wings and pumpkin using at least 4 or 5 promarkers and flexmarkers on each, I was reasonably pleased with the pumpkin less so with the wings.
