Hello, and welcome!
It's been very spring-like today.......sunny and warm.......balmy, even! I'm still waitin' for snow.....haaa!
Speaking of snow.....yes, I have to get it in somewhere, don'tcha know.......I felt the need to make a Christmas card, but with not a single white flake in sight.....how did that happen?
I've actually still got Christmas stash on my desk, and in my work basket, which lives at the side of my telly-watching chair. My work basket has quilt blocks, and a bit of cross-stitching in it.......I can't abide sitting with nothing for my hands to do! Having work in my sticky little fingers stops me from snackin', too........er........okay, maybe I'm stretching the truth a little........if I dig deep enough into my basket, I can usually find a few Smarties, or M&Ms........haaa!
Here's the card........
The red paper is actually deeper and richer looking, IRL.....looks a bit washed out in the pic...sorry.
The Christmas trees in the background are gold embossed on acrylic........I've had a stash of the sheets for ages, and was "saving" them for something special....never gonna happen, so I'm starting to use 'em........
I fell totally in love with this beautiful image when I was fortunate enough to get to use it for a DT challenge....it's from Whoopsi Daisy, and is named "Winter Cloak".....love it!
The ribbon is self-adhesive, and has been in my ribbon stash for an age; since I had my huge sort-out, I'm beginning to use up all the fabby goodies I've been hoarding......are you proud of me?
I used red glitter card to cut the pretty Nestie shape, and topped it with a cute sentiment which I'd stamped onto kraft, and coloured with PMs........
Another find from my hoarded stash......chipboard sentiment (think it's Cosmo Cricket) and this was the starting point for choosing the colour combination for the card........done!
Card Crafter's Circle Challenge is up, tomorrow....see you then!
