The Skater! DT Card for CCAYR March Challenge

Good Afternoon to You All and I hope today finds you well and if not, here's a BIG HUG!

Well, I am on days off now until next Thursday, yippee!!!!! it feels like a mini holiday and indeed it is as Alistair is treating me to a few days away, so we are off to a lovely country hotel down in the Borders.  He tells me I'm worth it and deserves the break, all of which is very true of course, but joking apart, it will be lovely and I will pack my knitting and decoupage and relax.

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments on my last card, you are very kind.

My card today is for March's CCAYR Challenge, and this time around it is making a card with a step design.
For some reason I found this one difficult to photograph, and the light wasn't great either.
I bought a pack of toppers last year,unfortunately I don't remember the name of them, the background card and sentiment came along with them.
MB Frosty Corners
Diesire Tree Dies
Hobby Craft Ribbon
Gems from my box
Icicles Stickles

Remember to pop in to and see what my talented team mates have created, there will be beautiful cards to give you inspiration.

Well, I'm scheduling this post for tomorrow, hope it works.

Have a lovely weekend everyone, whatever you plan to do and see you soon.
