Good Morning Ladies,
It was so lovely to read that so many of you also had a lovely relaxing weekend. This whole year feels like it has been busy and rushed, I hate to say it but I actually enjoyed the forced restrictions of Lockdown when we were very limited to where we could go etc, meaning that we all had a lot more relaxation time, the only thing I missed was seeing our Matt & Becca. Last year we couldn't go out to busy, crowded shops to do Christmas shopping and this year I really don't want to, I don't feel like we went without anything last year to be honest, so I think we are going to keep it simple this year too, it looks like it will be just the 4 of us again this Christmas which is perfectly ok with me, I think Matt felt bad when we were discussing Christmas this weekend but I said to him that he and Alex only have Christmas Day off together, I know that he loves cooking too so it would be lovely for him to just the spend with Alex especially as she is back in work on Boxing day, Becca and Adam weren't sure if they are working or not, if they aren't they are going to Adam's parents, if Adam works and Becca doesn't she will come over for a few hours I think. Have you all made your plans already??
Today's cards were inspired by Pinterest, I made the large (6x6) first, used Anna Marie card for star behind deer, Deer is a SU die cut, I embossed the background of that card with the 'Timber' SU embossing folder, I added a little vintage photo around the edges of the card and around the Deer 🦌. I wasn't sure if I liked the larger version so I decided to make a 4x4 inch version, I used the 'Subtle ' embossing folder this time, (it gives card the look of linen). The wood effect paper is an old SU paper, the Reindeer is a Spellbinders die this time. I finished him off with a little red nose and a matching red dot on the embossed flourish on hos bottom!
Two very simple cards, perfect for the Men in our lives, I would send this to my Brother for instance.
I hope that you all have a good day, we are at Hairdressers this morning and have the Sky Engineer out this afternoon, exciting day eh?!
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
