Good Saturday morning ladies,
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by and have a look at my blog.
Today's card is just a very simple Kraft card based Christmas card using the Memory Box
Christmas tree die, I am not sure if it the camera has picked up the red glitter card on the main
parts of the tree and a golden glitter card for the star, I embossed a piece of Kraft card with a
Spellbinders Embossing folder and matted onto red and green card, I used the Basque Red
Seam binding ribbon from Creative Expressions, to wrap around the card and to make a bow for
centre, it is still drying on the picture so looks a bit droopy! (a bit like me really)!
I just popped together this simple card to add to the blog as I have spent all day making the
second of the order cards, which was the same as the one I made for Paul (but a little smaller),
I took hours cutting those individual fern sprigs! But looks good, I made a complimentary
box and matching insert too, I wasn't going to put it on my blog as I already shown Paul's,
but I might show the box and insert.
We will have to go and finish Christmas shopping today as we are going to my Mum's
tomorrow, I still need a few bits to wrap, my Mum's gift proved impossible, she asked for a
pair of brown trousers, (chocolate browm) this colour is clearly not the 'in' colour this year
as we scoured every store in Swindon and Oxford, so I wet for
a voucher, that way she can look for her own, so I will need a couple of bits to wrap up to go
with it. I also need to buy for my niece, going for a traditional doll I think.
I will be glad when the shops are closed on Christmas eve so that I can stop thinking about
I wish you all a very productive Saturday whatever you are doing,
Paul has finished work for the holidays now, this is the first year he has not had to cover
either Christmas Day or New Years day, so that's a real treat, 2 whole weeks to spend together,
that to me is a gift in itself!
The girls have finished too so hopefully their bodies can start to recover in time for Christmas,
Have a lovely weekend my wonderful friends,
