More catching up

Well, the lurgy is still hanging around like a bad smell here - I'd like to thank everyone who left get well wishes, I appreciate them.

I have managed to fit wee sneaky crafty moments over the last few days - so I took the opportunity to catch up some more with the Sunday's with Santa Facebook group - this first one is for the Week 12 - No Green challenge...
I have stamped the Penny Black - Fantasy stamp with Versamark then heat embossed with detail white, onto this lovely spice coloured linen card from The Papeterie. I used a shaped card blank and greeting from Craftwork Cards and used the MS Cherish punches to shape the spice card.

Now, I'm not sure if it's my bug addled brain that's the problem or if it's just old age but this card started out as being for Gayles choice of Week 13 - Vintage, but halfway through it became Week 11 Snow/snowflakes - so I'll just enter it for both, yes I know that's kind of cheating, but if I have time I'll do another for Snow/snowflakes. Now I have a very loose interpretation of vintage...
White card is all from The Papeterie, embossed with swiss dots cuttlebug folder and Tim Holtz Bricked texture fades folder. The PI church image was stamped with SU Crumb Cake inkpad, and I blended Pumice Distress Ink around the edges of all 3 panels. The snowflakes are MS punches, prima e line adhesive stones, and glamour dust on the church image.

I'd like to enter both these cards into Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Xmas in Spring

Oh my goodness Debbi - these are gorgeous! I hope your bug goes away soon, it must be so frustrating to have it hang on for so long!

Commenting whilst I can - love your Fantasy Penny Black on the shaped spice card - quite a stunner that. The textures on the snowflake card are lovely too & the sparkly roof of the church is glorious. Looks fine as vintage to me. Hope you have a good weekend & feel much much better for next week.

I need that MS die - it looks amazing Debbi :)

I think the white tree looks amazing (like Lord of the Rings) and the simple greeting looks so classy.

Love the vintagy snow card too - the embossed panel looks so unusual, but very effective.
