Good Morning Ladies,
Happy Christmas Eve! I hope you have all finished your shopping and can now relax.
Today's card is the last of the three for the lovely Heather, this card is for her sons 1st birthday.
I folded an A3 piece of Centura pearl card in half and scored, I then cut out the blue teddy on my
Cricut Expression, decorated his extremities with glittered card, I also cut out the balloons on the Cricut, uses some coloured wire for the balloon string and attached them to the bears hand with a Creative Expression Itty Bitty Bow, (dotty)! I cut out all the lettering on the Cricut in two colours to compliment the balloons and stars, I put Harrry's name across the bears tummy with a tiny blue heart,
added a bright yellow bow to teddy's neck and some googly eyes. I dotted some punched out stars all around the card and added a gem stone to some for a little sparkle, I put a die cut number 1 in the balloon too!
The Insert was printed on the same coloured card on the front and matted onto some orange card, with a couple of stars to continue the theme the verse was written by Heather.
I then made a box to fit the card and decorated it to match.
I was totally blown away by Heather's reaction, she was over the moon, so much so that she went out and bought be some lovely flowers for me. I had tears in my eyes and huge lump in my throat after she left, I just never expected the amazing reaction, it truly made my day! Her Husband also loved his card (which is a smaller version of the one I made for Paul)!
Well there are still lots of preparations to do in our house today, we have done no wrapping, but all the shopping is done, thankfully!
I will cook the ham and turkey tonight and prep some of the veg, mind you we are not as busy on Christmas morning anyway as the children are all grown up and don't need things putting together anymore!
I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to come over
and comment on my blog, you have simply no idea how much your comments mean to me!
Please come back in 2015 and maybe even the days in between now and then, I will blog at every available moment!
sending Huge Hugs to every one, have the very merriest of Christmas's and the Happiest New Year
