Pixieschallenge381 & NBUS Challenge

Hello 👋 fellow bloggers
Hope all is well with the lockdown 🔐
It’s a bit easier now but for the best?!! l don’t think so
Especially with the demonstrations and marches
No social distancing and raves some people just don’t
Seem to realise there’s a pandemic amongst us
And without being sensible it’s not going to go away
Anytime soon some places are speaking of a 2nd lockdown
Just hope this makes people become more aware
And realise this is a serious time we are in

Well it’s another day for a challenge or two
And here is my card/s
Items used 
Scalloped card/blank cards
Noel clear stamp NBUS
Black card stock 
Black/Red inks
l made around 15 of these to boost my Christmas cards list

Used different coloured inks and added some gems
Well some did some didn’t l certainly did
Like the good sunny weather please come back 🤣
It’s been really windy 🌬 and wet although not 🥶
It would be nice for the ☀️ to re-appear doesn’t have to be as hot
