Christmas Choir

This is one of my favourite stamps and I can't resist using it.  I make a lot of Christmas cards in a year up to two hundred, some for myself, some for my daughter and the rest to charity, so I need to make them all year round.  I love Christmas and all the glitz associated with it that brightens up the mid winter blues, so it's no hardship to make these cards even in the summer.  I bore the life out of my friends at our craft club showing them Christmas cards all year long, except of course during January when I like to make most of my birthday cards.  We're a small family so I don't have many to make really.

This is a Penny Black stamp called Caroling Trio, I think the mice are soooo cute.  I've stamped on white pearlescent card using a Tuxedo Black Memento inkpad and coloured using my Copics.  The circle and scalloped circle are both Spellbinders, aren't they wonderful, I love nesties.  The doilly behind them came from a stall, sorry I can't remember the name of the company, at the Glasgow SECC craft show a couple of years ago.  The paper and card came from my stash and are mostly several years old.  Note to me: must use up more of the older 'stuff'.

Hope you like this card.  Have a nice weekend and thanks for taking a peek at my blog.   Hugz, Janice
