I combined a few challenges on this card:

- Inkspirational - INK#148 - where they want to see Christmas cards in only neutral colours
- Sunday Stamps Challenge - SSC#166 - sketch
I've had this Altenew Bells & Bow set for a while and this is the first time I've used it. To create this lovely bow it takes four stamps and it really helps to have a MISTI (or something similar). However, it is very easy to line up the stamps. I used a shimmery ink for the base layer and I think the bows look almost metallic! After stamping, I carefully cut them all out and layered them on small black squares. I stamped a simple snowy panel behind the squares and finished the front with a greeting layered on vellum and some square gems. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel added more snow and a simple Christmas greeting.
Not only was yesterday Thanksgiving, it was also the 54th anniversary of one our favourite family programmes - Dr Who. We had a viewing fest and for some reason, we picked the sad ones - the one where Rose 'dies', the one where Donna (my favourite) 'dies', and the one where Amy and Rory 'die'. There were many tears and lots of enjoyment! If you're a Dr Who fan, you'll enjoy the clip below which shows how the opening sequence of title and music has changed since 1963:
That's all for now - see you again soon. Have a great weekend.
