Baa Humbug!

Hello and thank you for your visit.

I'd like to welcome my latest follower Janet who I met last year when she did a class at a Retreat I went to in November.

As I was so behind with Christmas cards last year I've made a good start for 2017 and already have 75 done.  Another 35 and I'll have them all finished!

I have done lots of batch making and made a dozen similar to this card (not all the same sentiment!) using  Hobby Arts stamps set.  It is a favourite of mine and  has  several sheep and different hats in the set.

The background was done with distress inks and flicked with water and the hills die, which I've used over and over again I won in one of Darnell's NBUS challenges some time ago.

I would like to join in with Mo's Rudolph Day Challenge which she runs each month from 25th till the end of the month.
