Friday Sketchers #14, Bea's sketch

This is the first time I have managed to play along with Friday Sketchers but couldn't resist this sketch, it is right up my street, just love the distressed edges! I can't believe it is sketch 14 already, where did those weeks go?
This is the adorable Sugar Nellie 'Honey with Gifts' designed by Elisabeth Bell.
I love these stamps and am so glad they were released so early as I am nicely getting on track with my christmas card making! I need to have a large batch made by October as we visit family then and can leave a load to be distributed by hand later. If I am not organised in time it leaves me with about 100 cards to mail!
With my new Whiff of Joy stamps flying over to me right at this moment I am sure there will be a few more Christmas cards made in the next few days!

Supplies: Tools ~ eyelet setter, stapler
DP ~ unknown, got in a lucky dip pack from TracyJanes crafts
Stamps ~ Sugar Nellie 'Honey with gifts' Studio G sentiment stamp
Embellishments ~ Charms from Jeneca Beads, lace from RAK from Camilla, eyelet and brad from stash, flowers are both Prima

This is gorgeous! I don't think I could send it away! I always keep my Christmas cards VERY simple because I know most will end up in the garbage can. Sometimes I even BUY (gasp) Christmas cards! LOL.

Andrea said...

Hi Deb, absolutely wonderful card. I've started my Christmas cards too. I love the prima flowers but do you buy them with the writing on them or do you stamp over them? I have searched to buy them but can't find any. If you buy them can you tell me where to get them please? Regards. Andrea
