Kraft, Red and White

Thank you so much for all your kind wishes this week.
The arm is doing well although the surgeon did not remove all of the skin cancer
as that would have meant having a skin graft later.
I will just have to go back and have the rest removed in a couple of weeks. YUK

It was a good job that I had my card ready for 52 CCT for this week.

This week is a colour challenge of Kraft, Red and White
Now I didn't have any Kraft card so the Kraft on this card comes courtesy
of a lovely SU lady called Susan.  Thanks Susan. You can find her here.
As I chose to use this lovely stamp from LOTV I felt the white was a
bit too stark just plain so inked the edges with dessert sand
and glittered it.

Now I did this just for you Ruth.  The inside.
I distressed the edges with Dessert sand and then stamped the village scene
also with the same ink.
I felt it was all in keeping with the Victorian Lady on the front.


Thanks for dropping in

  10. What a darling lass and a beautiful card Margaret. I am in awe of the lovely scene inside too. I must admit that I have fallen off the new year's resolution wagon and haven't been very good about finishing the insides right away. You've inspired me to get back to it. Hugs D

  11. Oh what a beautiful, adorable card.

  12. Gorgeous card and beautiful image Margaret. Visited from MIM..Loz

  13. Margaret, that is a beautiful card - I love the Victorian vintage feel and the little girl is so sweet and adorable! I am chuffed to bits to see a beautifully decorated inside too! You've used one of my all time favourite Christmas stamps to do it, I love that village scene stamp, it's so classic and timeless. It looks so soft and pretty stamped in the Desert Sand ink! The sparkle on your card is gorgeous and adds such a festive touch!

    It's so wonderful to have you designing along with us this month, I can't wait to see what you have in store next week - you do realise I'll expect a decorated inside on that card as well?! ; )

    So sorry to hear about the problems with your arm. I wish you a speedy resolution and recovery! Ruth x

  14. Lovely to have you along as a GDT Magaret, and with such a fab card - love the little girl image, and the inside stamp is just a perfect complement to her. I also really like the glittery edge you've made - it's all so Christmassy and festive.
    Sorry to hear about your problem with your arm, I do wish you a full and quick recovery

  15. The elegant die cut frame is a gorgeous way to show off the beautifully colored image. The inside of your card is just as lovely as the outside! I'm enjoying having you join us as a guest designer at 52{C}CT this month!

    Best wishes to you as you continue treatment for your arm.

  16. Dropping by from MIM, sorry to hear about your struggles with your arm, wishing you all the best. And I just love this image, works perfectly with your colors. That inside stamp is so perfectly wintery/Christmasy, beautiful card!
