Good Monday Morning Ladies,
How are you all this wet Monday morning? We had a few nice hours yesterday afternoon, Paul did a bit more on vegetable patch and I managed to get 5 pots filled with tulips and daffodil bulbs, I have loads left over but the rain clouds gathered and we had to give up and go in. It was nice to get some done though, we will put a few more in pots and then the rest will go in the ground. I prefer to put them in puts though as you can move them around where you want them and don't have to dodge them when you are planting summer bedding. What do you all do??
Today's card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, I love the 'Soft Succulent' colour mixed with Sahara Sand', these colours work perfectly with the Tidings & Trimmings patterned papers. The stamp set is called Evergreen Elegance, I have had this stamp set for a year or more and forget how lovely the trees were....
These trees would be lovely stamped with that lovely Cottage Ivy ink that Lilian used for her challenge card featured on yesterday's blog. I stamped it in Soft Succulent to match the background paper.
One thing that doesn't show up on the photo is the silver gems that I added down the tree for a little sparkle. The other thing that I remembered to do was to create an insert, pictured above. Having the inset matching makes such a difference to the card, why do I forget to do them? every year I say (after sitting for a whole day creating inserts) that I will make them when I make the cards. Mind you thats like us saying we will make a card every month! Maybe next year? 🤣
I hope that you are all getting on with your Christmas cards,
Love and hugs to all of you,
