Loving the summer break.......been busy all week......choosing. I have been working on designs for the Wirral Day Workshop on the 26th October.....I have chosen Christmas designs working with new stamps from Little Claire recently released......so far so good!
I forgot to post a couple of cards created using the latest lovely set from Little Claire. I also made additional cards for work colleagues who recently retired....this stamp set being just perfect given all the beautiful weather we have been receiving......
I've added a postcard sentiment to the second card......fingers crossed that LC may be working on some Christmas postcard sentiments.......all components in both cards are available from Little Claire.
