Stamped Frugal 13.

I never promised you a Rose Garden, but I did promise a Frugal Bakers Dozen and here it is. The very last card to enter into the competition over at Nessa's blog to make a card using non Christmas orientated stash.
I have used a stamp which no one could call a Christmas stamp or even think of using except me of course!! I used it last month to make a card for Sis's Birthday. Now she was a bit perturbed that I had bought the stamp especially for her card and was worried that it would never get used again. Never fear Sis it has and as she is busy packing to go on holiday won't have time to look on my blog and see this. If you are Sis then look away now cos this is your Christmas card!!!

Penny black Stamp "Spinning a Yarn"
White card blank and red card stock not shown
Red Promarker and gold highlighter pens.


 
Here is the card I have made.

    Yesterday I read that when you stop believing in Santa, you get socks and undies!!!

    They must be knitting for the non Santa believers!!!

    So very cute...I think this one is my favourite one of your frugal Christmas makes.
