Silent Night

Good Afternoon, sorry I've been awol again.  The Labrynthitis took hold when I finished the meds I got from the doctor, trouble was it was over the weekend so couldn't get more pills until Monday afternoon.  They are kicking in again now, but am still spinning around a bit.  So apologies for not visiting and commenting on your blogs, will hopefully be able to manage a few later on this evening.



My card to share is for this week's Less is More - Things That Move. I think my stable scene and star both fit into that category.  The is my 6th attempt, I was trying to gold emboss everything and made a complete pigs ear of  it.  Finally, gave up the embossing and decided to work with black and white and I got the card made in about 15 minutes!!       The image is a Hobby Art stamp that I found in a sale box in my local craft shop, the star is Clarity both stamped with Archival Black ink and and matted onto some black card from my box, the sentiment is computer generated.

I am also entering my card into these challenges:
Bah Humbug Challenge - Something New, both of my stamps; and
Ooh La La Creations - No background papers.

I hope you like my card and many thanks for visiting.
