Oh and don't forget to have a go at my candy you have to be in it to win it!
My Birthday & Anniversary candy



  1. This is a really lovely card but I'm afraid you can only enter one card into the Winter Wonderland challenge. More entries can be made with other items eg tags, layouts. Marianne x (I have some candy ending tonight and anotehr starting tomorrow.)

  2. Pink Pearls yuck ... are you kidding me ??? We love Pink at jingle belles ... but we also love them in brown ... so perfect with this pretty reindeer.

  3. A great image and makes a beautiful card, Your link is incorrect on your entry to Less is More so doesn't come here I had to play around to get it, It's got an extra http// in it.

  4. I have these stamps too Samantha and I love them. You have made a terrific card, but for the LIM challenge you have linked it to too many others... you may have forgotten that we have a limit of 5 max.
    It also looks as though the front of the card is layered and this is a One Layer Card week for us.
    The link to it on LIM is also corrupted and I had to come to you with a bit of jiggery pokery!
    Thanks anyway!
