Indoors Decoration

Good morning everyone!

It has been very quiet on my blog this week and I haven't been able to visit all the other blogs I love as I have been struck down with the flu :( Thankfully I am feeling much better again now, as a new challenge is starting today at Fab 'n Funky themed "WHAT'S INSIDE", one of my teamie Beccy's ideas, meaning that we want you to decorate the inside of your card. I always do that anyway, a great way of using up scraps of paper, but thought I would make a bit more of an effort this time around. I got to play with my new purchase, Card Candi, which I really enjoyed, so versatile but it doesn't add much in terms of weight to your card (very important if you want to mail your cards, which I usually will).

Here is my Christmas-themed card, both inside and out!
