That's More Like It!

I don't think I really need to explain what I did as it is so simple, you can see straight away! The stamp is from Stamps Away and he is coloured with my Prismas and Sansodor. The flashes of colour have been embossed with the CB Swiss Dots folder.

I cannot wait until the end of the month as I will be getting a small bonus from work and so am finally going to treat myself to some circular Nestabilities. I am sick of cutting scalloped circles by hand as no matter how hard you try, you always get a little bit left over where the scissors don't quite meet up.....did you spot it?! I wish they were a little bit cheaper, then I could buy them all straight away! I would get them from the US but as they are just over the free limit, fear the import tax won't make them such a bargain :o(

I know it is a bit rough round the edges, but I seriously love this simple card and think I am going to use the basic layout for all my 'bulk' christmas cards. Obviously I'll make sure the stamp is a bit more christmas-y though!

Great card Stacey, I love the image and great colouring, great colours and love the layout too. I would have never had known that you cut the scallops by hand until you said, that is amazing! I got my Nesties from Joanna Sheen, seems to be the cheapest place this side of the Atlantic x

Stacey, I got mine from Once Upon A Stamp, which is a bit cheaper than Joanna Sheen. £16.99 each or 4 sets for £60 - a bargain! I'd love to know if they are cheaper than this anywhere.

Fab card stacey. Love the simplicity of the LO. I got my circle nesties from cut @ home in the US. I didn't have to pay any import tax and it they only cost me £36 for all 4 circle sets and that was including p&p!

Lovely card Stacey. I've found it's luck of the draw whether you have to pay import tax, most times I've been lucky.
