More Gingerbread


Todays giveaway is another chance to win the lovely new CD Gingerbread Twist - perfect for crafters who want to point, click and print, or for crafters who love hybrid digi cardmaking or scrapbooking. All you have to do is leave a comment under this post, and your name will be drawn with the other winners this week on Sunday

I love this next card. The scallop aperture card base is by Kanban, and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards, everything else is from Polkadoodles Christmas is Coming CD. I added glitter to the cut out trees........



the sentiment says 'Santa is coming', so this is definitely going to go to one of my grandchildren, one more tick off the list...... 


and quick as a flash, I made a second card, the image is a ready coloured topper printed out, I cut out the hat and sack from another image and popped it up for dimension, added some sparkle to Santa's outfit and the berries, and voila, done. Another tick......


If you haven't left a comment on all five posts this week, be sure to scroll down to do so, and to see more details about the lovely CD's I am giving away each day

A strange thing happened yesterday, I was at my Thursday craft group and went out with a friend to fetch lunch. When we got back we noticed that part of the car park had risen in a big bump. Did you ever see that ridiculous SciFi film where giant worms invaded the earth and sort of moved beneath roads before bursting out of the tarmac and eating everyone in sight? Well, this looked as if one of those worms was moving around under there. Spooky. Then a little later, we noticed a very distinct dip in the ground in front of this bump. Oooops, I think we may be witnessing a sinkhole about to open up. We moved our cars pretty quick I can tell you. It will be interesting to see if the car park is still intact next week - come to think of it, it will be interesting to see if we still have a building to craft in!

See you tomorrow

Pretty scary about that bump in the lot. Be sure to update us!

Wow Enfys this card is awesome. I think you should report the hole and bump. It happened here in Ottawa not too long ago and someones car fell in. Luckily the guy was ok. But the hole was huge.
Have a great weekend. Love your blog :o)
