4x4 Winter Card Set ... Part 1!

Good Morning!
As I mentioned in my last post I was trying to get my stamp purchases inked up from the past month or two that had sadly been neglected since being delivered by the postie.
Today's card is using one of these stamps but it's also part of a set of 2! 
Both today's stamp and the one featured in my next post are of a similar design so I thought I'd make a set of 2 cards ... that are also of a smaller 4x4 size!

Lily White Glitter & Blue Jean Sprinkles by Doodlebug

Good Morning!
Well my fortnight off work is coming to an end today, needless to say I'm feeling rather subdued as it's gone too quickly and I didn't get half the stuff done that I'd intended to ... ho hum.

A month or so ago I treated myself to some new and older LOTV stamps and I was determined to try and get the majority of them inked up throughout my time off. 
Fingers crossed I'l get some more done today!

Tis the Season ... To Share a Song!

Good Morning!
I don't usually play with Digi's ...
(mainly because 9 times out of 10 I'm too lazy to get the printer out of the cupboard, find the cable needed and set it all up) 
... but as soon as I saw this design I knew I had to make an exception!
This design is super cute and I think it would also be perfect for Winter Birthdays not just Christmas.
