I'm late posting tonight, first card in a few days from me.....been under the weather this week, not really sure what I had but kept me away from the computer and making cards, nothing for it but to stay put in bed till it past. Nobody about tonight so made a simple card to get back into the swing o things. Have followed the sketch over on Willowsketchiechallenge blog. There is one fab prize this week up for grabs for one lucky winner so this is my effort! Used Kaisercraft papers, Inkadinkado Santa, okay not much colouring with this one but worked well with what I wanted to achieve, Inked edges with TH Vintage photo ink and ruffed up the edges and a tear here and there

And this is what you can win,

bye for now
