Today is Roald Dahl day. I love this sentiment which is so true. I have now taken note of it and hope to use it either on a journalling page or canvas in the future. I think I only ever read a couple of his books when I was younger, Charlie and the chocolate factory and James and the giant peach which I thoroughly enjoyed. Maybe now I've got grandchildren I have an excuse to pick some up to read and share with them.
I delved into my scraps box last night and made this Christmas card. I've used a few stamp sets from SU, the sentiment is a new one this year and I love how it takes up a large area of the card meaning you can use minimal embellishments. The poinsettia is from last year's range and is a three step stamp and I've stamped it out three times and decoupaged it and added some gold Stickles to the centre. The white cardstock looked a little plain so I used a small splatter stamp to give a soft background and break up the starkness.
