Merry Medley background

Good Morning and welcome to my blog today! It's all go at Chez Kettlewell at the moment as we are spending a great deal of time looking at and researching universities for our eldest son Ross to potentially start next September. When I started this blog Ross was 8 years old and now we are looking at universities! Can't believe he is almost 18.

Today I am sharing a card we made at Coffee and Card a few weeks ago. I now have seat available at my weekly Coffee and Card sessions which take place every Tuesday morning on a drop in basis from 10am. Please note there is no session this coming Tuesday due to school holidays. 
I love a nice background stamp and this Merry Medley stamp is no exception, great for a quick background and I have stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake card to create a subtle background.
 Now I am still loving my embossing and I used the Copper Embossing powder on this card for the sentiment which turned out great, as you can see below. 
 Thank you to my customers who have used the code so far, still time to get yourself a little gift in November!

Cookie Cutter meets Cable Knit

Good Morning. Today I am sharing the final make from last weeks Tuesday Club where I featured the wonderful Cable Knit embossing folder. I am loving using this folder for backgrounds on my cards and like many of my customers it wasn't on my original shopping list but I soon changed my mind when I saw all the wonderful projects made with it.

I am also loving this little reindeer and I also am still loving the reaction of my customers when I tell them its the Gingerbread man upside down! They often have to look twice!
Now I would have never used Delightful Dijon as a Christmas colour but I am loving it in the Warmth and Cheer papers so I added it to this card, think it makes a lovely change.
Inside the card got a lot of love as usual but I think I went a little overboard with the stars as there is not much room left to write in the card now!
Thank you to my shoppers who have used this months code so far!
