I'm in!!!

Well, my craft room (well, space under the stairs) has now been moved into the dining room with my brand new shiny craft unit, I will take pictures of it at some point to show, but it's lovely.  It was however a week of complete disruption as it took 3 evenings to put together and then several more days to fill - oh and then there were the 16 boxes and tons of polystyrene to get rid of - such fun!

Alison and I got to sit down in it on Saturday & have a bit of a play - no cards made but lots of fun had!

On Sunday I did sit down to the serious business of making a card & got out a freebie pack from one of the magazines with Mulberry Wood Christmas - may have to get that CD & stamps (must have stamps, although I have discovered that I do actually have millions of them - and quite a lot of them are Crafters Companion).  Anyway, after several hours, yes even with my crafty organisation it still takes me forever to make one card - still don't know how some people make loads in one day, this is what I came up with.  I made the beads with the triangular strips that came on the decoupage sheet with santa, the little wreath I've had in my stash for probably 10 years, forgot I had and re-discovered when I moved - so some good has come from all of this.

Anyway, here's the card

Hope you like & see you soon.

ooh, nearly forgot - I followed the sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge but used a square in place of the circle.
