Good Morning Ladies,
How are we all today, it was bright and breezy here yesterday, we didn't have anymore rain thankfully, today is forecast to be lovely and sunny but chilly, it's like that for most of this week, apart from the weekend when it gets quite cloudy, which is a shame for all of the big firework displays. We have one in the village this year, the pub has organised it, the only problem is that it is the field behind that tree, which is currently under a few feet of water, just for reference that tree is stood on the back a few feet back from the river. Hopefully it will all drain away and they can still build their bonfire, they have started having Sunday evenings set aside for people from the village which is nice. (not that we have been, Paul really isn't bothered about sitting in a pub, Shhhhh I think it might be to do with the price of drinks (but i didn't say that)!!!
You know I thought that this challenge would be super easy, I think I must overthink everything! I spent 2 hours trying to decide what to make for today's card, I ended up getting out about 7 different stamp sets and twice that many dies! What could be easier than squares and circles??? Not!
I decided on squares for todays card, I first got out my Creative Expressions Slimline Triple Square die, but that just looked too big, while I was rummaging about I found a smaller set of squares and circle dies that are linked together, I got this set from Karen, it has dogs and cats with it too. So I die cut the squares twice and adhered them together (for dimension), I adhered them to a piece of Night of Navy card that was slightly larger. I placed that onto a white card base using foam pads and for the sentiment I used my New Stampin Up Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, I love the font of these sentiments.
I stamped the 'Merry Christmas' in Night of Navy to tie in with the background of the snowflakes, to finish the card I added some little sparkles to the centres on the Snowflakes. I quite like how it turned out, although not worthy of the 2 hours procrastination!!
I hope that you all have a lovely day, enjoy that Winter Sunshine,
Love and hugs to all of you,
