Hello fellow crafters, and I would like to welcome my newest follower, Pauline, who runs the Card Crafter's Circle Challenge blog.
My goodness, aren't the weeks disappearing fast. There has been so much happening here that I didn't even realise that my blog turned one a few days ago. Where did that year go???
In addition to 2 unrelated sad events involving 2 close friends, I have been 'fighting' a virus for about a week...I have a very sore throat, mild earache, and I have absolutely no energy.
As a result of all this I am sorry to be late in telling you about our new challege at Penny's Paper Crafty, where our theme this week is a lovely one, that some people do find challenging -

I chose this lovely digital image, Christmas Candle, by Kathryne, of Stamp Art Designs.
It is so pretty.
The background is embossed with a Fiskars plate, and I put Stickles on the centre
of each snowflake. I bought the Fiskars plates many years ago, before I bought my
Cuttlebug, but didn't use them once I had a collection of embossing folders. However,
now that I mostly make square cards (146 x 146mm), I 'rediscovered' my plates.
They fit in my C'bug, emboss beautifully, and are a perfect size for my square cards.
