Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....  I'm back!

Finally all sorted with internet, I've felt I'd lost an old friend these past couple of days not being able to blog etc 

Last month one of the papercraft magazines had a huge freebie, 2 full sheets (A4 ) of stamps, sentiments and embellishments all pertaining to the 12 days of Christmas.  I'm hoping to use the same size card throughout the 12 days theme then, gave the cards away. as a set, on my blog

This card is 4" x 6"  and I used one of the stitched rectangle dies, by Sue Wilson, to die cut an aperture on the card front 

One of the stamps has 'on the first day of Christmas. as one stamp, I stamped it onto white card then cut it out to give me 3 separate stamps as shown on the card front

The remainder of the verse  I used on the inside of the card.  I used an ink cube in  'London Fog' by Memento, to stamp the image and various coloured watercolour pencils to colour it in.  The card is just ordinary white cardstock, not watercolour card

I also drew a very light frame around the image so that it would look as if it was 'floating' 

This week's 'give away' card is an eclipse card.  I love making this particular style of card and hope the recipient likes it too!

If you would like to give this card a new home leave a comment on today's blog.  You have until 6pm Friday to do so and the winner will be announced on Saturday's blog

Until tomorrow....

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
