DT card for Secret Crafter Saturday challenge

This is my last DT card for Secret Crafter Saturday challenge, I will miss the fab team loads, I would like to thanks Wendy for giving me the chance to work on such a fantastic team. Unfortunately I'm so busy with family and my NVQ's I just don't have the time for everything and something had to give. It wasn't an easy decision as I loved being part of scsc. This weeks challenge has been set by talented Wendy Blog owner and Wendy has chosen a theme of Christmas Trees. For my card I've used FF stamp, coloured with distress inks, paper is MME and ribbon is dovecraft. Thanks for looking and taking the time to leave me comments, even though I've been the worlds worst blogger these last few weeks.Hopefully by the new year things will settle down for me (I hope) hugs Jill xx
