Christmas Card 'Old Style'
Good Morning Ladies,
How many of you did a 'double take' when you saw today's card??!
I saw some of Sue's new dies at the show on Sunday and just couldn't resist them, I have mixed the dies with Stampin Up! Card...Whisper White & 'Coastal Cabana' which is a gorgeous blue. I also used Stampin'Up! Copper Foil and Copper Foil edged Ribbon (Coastal Cabana) and Spotted Tulle Ribbon & Glitter Gems.
The Sue Wilson dies I used for this card are Festive Collection: Frosty Snowflake Corner, Festive Frames 'Eve'. I used the 'Eve's Snowflakes' Embossing Folder for the Background.
I finished the card with some Stampin'Up! Snowflakes cut in Copper Foil, I also added some of the tiny dots that look like snow on the SU Blizzard Die.
What do you think?
That's 3 Christmas cards for me this week, so far!
Boy was it a windy day yesterday, I think I must have pegged same washing on the line about 3 times before 10am yesterday, I gave up trying to peg out my big 'comfy pants' for fear that they would break free and down a passing B52 Bomber!! It always makes me laugh when I compare the amount of fabric used to make my knickers compared to the girls, some of them are pointless! How that can be comfortable is beyond comprehension to me, I also noticed on holiday this year that a good 60% of bikinis were that 'thong' style, I imagine there were a lot of burnt bum cheeks this year! Luckily Sophie and Lucy are a little pit prudish when it comes to swimwear, they like to be covered
Sue came over late morning and we spent a couple of hours chatting and catching up, we had lots of interruptions too as all three girls were home and everyone of them needed help for something at somepoint! We did get to go into the Craft room, (I tidied enough room for Sue to craft). Sue got started with her Challenge card and I was playing with some of my new dies. Before either of us knew it, made announced that Chris (Sue's husband) had arrived to pick her up. I finally got to meet little Christopher, OMG, such a gorgeous little boy, so intelligent, he was taking everything in, you could literally see him scanning the room with his eyes. He loved the cats too, he made me chuckle though as Milo walked away from him he said "look he's got a sprayer'', Sue explained that he has a thing about Skunks at the moment, I am guessing that their bums must look similar.
(this has turned out to be a bit of a 'bum' blog)!!
Quiet house today as Sophie and Lucy had gone to Thorpe Park for two days with their boyfriends and some other friends, the house will be so peaceful!
I hope that you have a lovely day what ever you are doing.
Special hugs for you Pat if you look in, I really miss you ! xxxx
Love and hugs to all,
