Craftwork Cards Christmas Snowflake Candi Card

Good morning to all my crafting friends and a special welcome today to my two new followers Elise and Tracey M. I hope you will enjoy my future posts and visit often.
My card today is another of the Craftwork Cards Candi Cards I bought the pad at the GNPE I've now made three and  had hoped to do all six designs but time is against me at the moments so they may not appear till the New Year.
I hope you all got some bargains during Black Friday but I was inundated with emails yesterday it seems like every man and  his dog was doing something for Black Friday, am I wrong or is this the first time its happened in the UK on this scale.
I went to Newcastle to finish Christmas shopping (well nearly finished !! ) it was hectic but I got some good reductions on the things I wanted John Lewis had some great offers.
Now for the card

A lovely Christmas card Carole. I can't believe all the fuss surrounding this Black Friday thing. Like you my Inbox was overflowing with sales stuff and in the shops it was chaos, when you see the news. Exported from our American cousins. I think this is something we could do without though!

A beautiful card. I love your colours and the Candi really brings the snowflake to life. Your felt snowflake and Joy embellishments are lovely. Sally D.x.

What a super card Carole, love the colours and the coordinated candi is perfect xx

Carole said...

This is a lovely card Carole (Oooh it is a great name isn't it !) I like the colour tones in this and it looks very classy. Black Friday!! in my book means something bad...not bargains at the shops in the crush. Another thing from America we seem to have adopted! I've done all my present shopping (smug) so my bargain now is all the money I save NOT going to the sales!! Enjoy your weekend ...good luck with the inserts.

A really great design, and the wooden sentiment is fab. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, every day seems to have a name now, not sure I quite understand it all! Crafty Blessings, Tracy x
