Yesterday's dabblings

Good morning Bloggers, wasn't yesterday such a beautiful day after a heavy frost to start with, I spent quite a bit if time in the craftroom sorting out cards orders! I have to prioritise so I'm afraid that challenge cards have taken a back seat for a few days.
My cousin loves offbeat stuff and she asked me to make 20 of these cards because she loves the Famous Grouse adverts at Christmas time on TV. She had seen a similar card I had made for a birthday :o)


I made the single layer cards yesterday, now I have the inserts to make which I detest doing! Base card is a sort of buff/fawn colour bought from PMS eons ago.
Used stamps from 2 different SU sets and the sentiment stamp is from
I know not where :o)

Beautiful Jackie. I love the soft monochromatic colour scheme. I really should take a leaf out of your book re-challenge cards...I have a lot of Christmas stuff I should be geting on with but I just seem to find it too hard to let the challenges go by, lol! x
