Using a Die Cut

I don't know about you guys but after making Christmas card after Christmas card, my mojo for the new year has been on a go slow. As a DT at Polkadoodles we were given the subject of 'Use a Die Cut' and thankfully I have a step dad with an early January birthday so I combined those 2 things and came up with this....

A cute little A6 flip card in shades of blue & brown.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I do love to read all of your lovely comments.
