Sheila, it warmed my heart to see you pop in yesterday, I totally understand how you are feeling this first Christmas will be the worst I promise you, although the pain is will still be there for years to come it does get easier to bare. Sending you the biggest hug xxx
Thanks for all of you that make the time to pop in, I know how busy you all are.
Our tree is up, you will laugh when I tell you that I sat for more than an hour tonight with a 'Gold' Promarker colouring all 1500 bulbs (mini led's) because we bought them not realising that they were a 'Blue white' light that almost burns your eyes, so a little gold promarker tones them down!!
Today's cards were both made with the same dies, Creative Expressions Snowflake Background die to cut some White card, I then covered a piece of Periwinkle card with some double sided sticky sheet and added some iced snow, for sparkle, I then mounted the White Background die on some double sided foam tape for dimension, I added some Cosmic shimmer glue to make sure that the foam tape stuck to the Iced Snow!
I die cut some Classic Poinsettia die (CE) in Periwinkle Card and the Filigree Poinsettia Die cut in White, I added some Iced snow to these too, layered them up and placed the top one simply on the edge of the Oval aperture, adding the sentiment on the smallest of the Pierced Flag dies (CE),
the lower card, I mounted the Poinsettia onto some white seam binding ribbon tied into a bow.
I added some AB crystals to the centres of the snowflakes and poinsettias for sparkle.
I hope you like them.
Sue, Pat and I are off out for our Christmas lunch today, doesn't seem 5 minutes since last years, No firing elastic bands at unsuspecting men this time Sue!
I hope to see you in the cafe today,
Love and Hugs
