Christmas for Teddy and Penguin

Well roast dinner was delicious, always is when hubby cooks Sunday dinner. I am even getting off with the dishes tonight, although I have to walk the dogs. Hubby usually walks them before dinner through the week but on a Sunday things change they get walked after dinner, maybe because we have dinner earlier.  Boy I am rabbiting on here.

My card is another Christmas one which I have enjoyed making this morning especially as I am using a die cut from LOTV (Lili of the Valley for those uninitiated crafters, I only discovered them recently).  Their stamps (which I am not confident in using yet) and die cuts are really gorgeous.

8 x 8 white card
Background Papermania Christmas Tidings A4 paper pack

Spellbinders Grand Labels One and Labels One

As usual I eagerly await your comments as they mean so much to me.
Take care and wrap up warm.

  1. Hi Wilma,
    fantastic card,just love that image, and those papers are fabulous. You have designed the card beautifully.
    Snap hubby cooked my Sunday dinner too, but sadly I had the washing up to do, no lovely dogs to take me off out. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty evening.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  2. Gorgeous card Wilma and such a lovely image, great backing papers too


  3. Such a sweet image Wilma and lovely papers. If I had to wait for John to cook I'd be a very slim lady!!!! He is absolutely useless - but he is brilliant at DIY and all other repairs. He can actually turn his hand to anything - except cooking! So I really cannot grumble. Christine x

    1. Well mine is no good at DIY spent all his working life at sea, no need for DIY.

  4. Gorgeous card Wilma. Love that sweet image. Can't resist LOTV images. I have lots!!

    Must be nice having your tea made for you. Usually my job. But then my hubby used to be a farmer and farmer's wives are assumed to be good at cooking and baking!! Not sure if I'm good at it but I do like cooking and baking. Just wish I didn't have to work then I could do more not to mention have more time to craft.
