A Card

Hi All. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts it's always good to welcome you here. So sorry if you live where there is extreme weather conditions. I hope it improves for you soon. I am looking forward to the start of the Winter Olympics and especially the curling which was wonderful last time.

I haven't done much crafting this week as I have a sore eye at the moment, but I did manage to make a card yesterday for the challenge at Try it on Tuesday. The theme this time is travel.

I made this card. It has a black background and then I added a torn piece of the beautiful animal print card that Valerie had sent to me  The stamp is from a set I got free in simply Homemade magazine a long time ago.. I used Distressed inks and Promarkers for colour and a piece of brown wool at the side.

Hope you have a lovely day
