Good Morning Ladies,
These Fridays are certainly coming round super fast aren't they?
There are 8 weeks until Christmas Day!! Now that is scary!
This time next week some of us will be meeting Michele at the NEC, I am really looking forward to it, if anyone else is able to join us you will be most welcome x
Now onto today's card, I have been wanting to try Dark grey with silver and white for a while, so I decided to use that combination to design a Clean and simple Christmas card.
I used the new Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder Embossing Folder to create the focal point of the card, I die cut some snowflakes from the Season Layers Thinlits and Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits to embellish the card with. I matted the embossed front onto Silver and then onto the Basic Grey card and then mounted onto a white 5 x 7 base card. I popped one of the snowflakes into the centre of the embossed snowflake and then topped that with a silver faceted gem, I ran a piece of the Silver edged ribbon across the card and topped that with a piece of the amazing silver sequin trim (i love it)!
I then tied a box in the same ribbon, topped with a silver snowflake and a tiny faceted gem, the sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny sentiments, which I punched out using the Banner punch, I layered this onto a little piece of the silver card too.
I quite like how it turned out, I hope you do too.
We have an early start today as we are off to my Mun's, she didn't sound too bad on the phone yesterday so hopefully she will be fine when we get there. The girls are coming too as they haven't
been for a while as Paul and I have been going during the week as we are usually on Dad's Taxi duties at the weekend for the girls work run!
Sophie got back from Barcelona on Wednesday night, she looked really tired but she said she had had an amazing time, which I was so pleased to hear, your first trip away with someone close to you can be a 'make or break' situation, hers is the former thankfully, her only complaint was that her legs ached from walking around "the whole" of Barcelona! Needless to say Lucy was very happy to have her 'other half' home.
I hope that all of you have a fun packed Friday,
Love and Hugs to all of you,
