Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
I hope that today finds you relaxed, how's your weekend going so far? We decided to brave the shops today to get started on the Christmas shopping, my Sister is coming to visit the weekend before Christmas which will be lovely, it will be the first year that we haven't driven to Colchester the week before Christmas to do the present run, I was going to suggest not bothering this year because we just didn't want to do the journey, particularly as we would either have to do the 185 (at least) to my sisters house and drive back the same day, my joints just cannot take being in the car for the best part of 400 miles in one day! I would be stuck in bed for days, which isn't helpful thos time of year, anyway my sister rang and said "can I come to visit you as you have done the journey every year for past 25 + years so I thought it was our turn" which is so thoughtful and I am very grateful. So we need to get the gifts for my two sisters and their families, I will send my brothers separately. I just need to feel like I'm making so progress.
I have been playing with Sweet Poppy - Stencils Dimension paste, I used it to create this Christmas tree, then added glitter to add colour it, the glitter was left over from a previous card on which I had used Lime and Gold glitter. So waste not ….. as my mother would have said, turned out to be a great positive, the mixture of the two created a lovely sparkle for my tree! I hop the photo picks it up.
Is a very quick card the die cut is a First Edition die placed on silver holographic card, I have tried to pick up the glow on my photo.
Oh Brenda that Christmas tree is stunning, The Lime and Gold Glitter have created the perfect combination such a beautiful sparkly card. That Holographic card works so well behind that lovely silhouette die cut, it gives a lovely warming glow. Thank you so much for taking part on this weeks challenge my lovely XXX
