I went with a classic, rustic kraft base for all my cards this year, choosing the natural pencil blend over my normal markers. It’s a fantastic effect, though perhaps not as quick as markers! My krafty…

It’s rapidly approaching that time of year when I start to get a bit anxious over having enough Christmas cards to send out come December. Every year I say I will start early and make at least one a month all year round, but I never manage to achieve that aim! This is my fifth card of the year and…
