From Our House to Yours........

It's my turn to post over on the Just Some Lines blog today and I decided to make another Christmas card using one of the recently released Christmas collection. Here it is:

Image - Just Some Lines 'From Our House to Yours-Neighbours' coloured with Spectrum Noirs with chalk for the night sky background and 'puffy pen' for the snow.
Card Blank and Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Paper - Freebie from Quick Cards magazine.
Red Card - Papermania.
Ribbon - from stash.

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:
And I think that's it. Did you notice my double bow? Thought it'd make a change from an ordinary one - if you want to try it yourself, I use the 'bunny ears' method to tie my bows, so you just double up the 'ears' and then tie in the normal way. It's a nice bow to add to presents as well as cards - let me know if you give it a try.
Well, I'd better go - I'm picking my friend's twins up from school today and looking after them for an hour or so until she finishes work and it's the first time so wish me luck LOL!! Bye for now...............xx
