Mini Holiday

I've given myself a mini one day holiday from everything except relaxing and card making. So having grinned myself silly over the fact that I am doing no house work and that I don't have to go out in all of that ice, I started in on all of the cards that I need to make for family.
This is my first effort for the day.

I had to use one of my ink pads to hold the card closed in order to get a good picture.

Word of advice...... if you are going to cut through five layers of paper and card, be prepared to have a go with a sharp craft knife to get your aperture to pop out cleanly. I think I have now worked out the limits of my nesties.

I got the stamp free with a magazine and he has had quite a few outings all ready. I inked the edges with Tim Holtzs Aged Mahogany distress ink as the white was glaring at me a bit.

The sketch for this card came from this weeks challenge over at MAWTT. They also wanted us to include a bear in the design. I also noticed that the aperture fits the bill for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday
