Good Afternoon everyone, it's been lovely here today, sun shining and lovely blue skies but blooming freezing.  Did a load of the dreaded H*******k this morning and then had a crafty session.  Then went into Stockport with my mum to get my new Promarkers.  They were £1.49 each at Hobbycraft but I used the online voucher which gave you £5 off a £25 spend.  I bought 17 which came to £20.33 so each pen only cost me £1.19 each.  What a bargain.  I also bought a coat from H&M and some bits for the house from Dunelm Mill so had quite a nice afternoon.

Here's my card.

Image - Pollycraft - Precious
Backing Paper - First Edition - Christmas Joy
Memory Box Dies - Charlotte Border and Snowflake Corner
Marianne Die - Poinsetta
Gems from stash
Glamour Dust

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Pollycraft Challenge - Girls, Girls, Girls
Top Tip Tuesday - Layer it up
I love Promarkers - Aint it cute
Simon Says Stamp - Inspired by Fairy Tale (Snow Queen)

Hope you like.

Before I go I just want to remind you that you still have another week to enter

Hi Deb, what a really sweet card! Love the cute image and that corner swirl - well it's just beautiful!! If I wasn't on a Christmas stash ban, I'd be asking you where you got it and rushing there to see if they still had one! Sounds like you got a good bargain with the Promarkers. Sarah

Your corner die cut is brilliantly effective especially with your scattering of sparkly gems. Well done with the ProMarkers too. It's getting chilly down here & winter seems to be overtaking autumn rapidly.
