One more for the Christmas pile

Good afternoon!

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Warwickshire. I can't quite believe it is October as it is so warm outside. I've enjoyed a very relaxing stroll with the dog this afternoon. The dog is now flat out and I am in the mood for crafting.

I've just finished off this card that I started before my walk. I am really annoyed with myself, because I forgot that I had put glossy accents on the snowman's buttons and stuck my finger in it before it had dried and spread it across the image. I tried to rub the goo away but I just made it worse, I am keeping my fingers' crossed that the recipient of this card won't look too closely!!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoy your day whatever you are doing.

Hugs, Clare x

I'm loving your cards, you're very talented, so I wouldn't worry about the smudge (I couldn't see it at all) :)

Gorgeous card Clare. I'm sure no-one will notice if there's a little smudge. I usually do it with stickles!
