Christmas Wishing

Not heard anything about the job yet, they where still interviewing yesterday, It's torcher not knowing!
Trying to keep busy, making Christmas cards and mowing the grass, it was just about dry enough.

My card today features a Penny Black stamp called "wishing", it only cost me £2.50 for this wood stamp because it had been used at the craft shop for demos. I think it's real cute and when all the papers and image are given the distress ink technic it gives it a more traditional look that I'm aiming for this Christmas.
The papers are back to basic vintage 12x12 by Docraft , and at £5.99 for 36 sheets, a great buy I think.
The sentiment is from hobby craft,the wooden snowflake kars and a few gold gems to finish.

What a great version of the sketch! I like the scalloped edges of this card and the sweet image with the happy looking dog. The oval with sentiment is really decorative.
