Pirates and Pink Frocks

I've had a lovely afternoon.... finished work early and popped to Chester-le-Street to see what crafty goodies I could find in Boyes. I wasn't disappointed - got loads of ribbons for Christmas cards and some gorgeous A4 Daisy and Dandelion Christmas papers. Had a sneaky box of chips aswell before I came home (when did 'boxes' of chips appear??)

No more work now til Monday so I got the weekend off to a cracking start with some cardmaking..

I made this for an 8 year old boy - got the papers a few months ago in Papercraft Essentials but I never thought of using them until now. Very simple decoupage.

This frock card was made using up the leftover papers from the flower card in my previous post - I hate waste and have a box full of scraps - every cardmaker should have one! The frock sticker was from a scrapbook set I have had for years. I added a few diamantes to freshen it up but the light is so poor today that you can't see them!

Right - back to the Chrimbo cards!!
