Good Morning Ladies,
How are you all getting on with your Christmas shopping? I think we are mostly done, we went food shopping yesterday when Paul got home, we will have to pop out Friday morning and get the last of the fridge bits, fresh bread etc. Paul had extra leave to use up, plus a couple extra days from Airbus, so he has finished now until 3rd January, that's actually like a Christmas gift to me 🎁🥰
Are you all having family come to you or are you going to stay with family at the weekend?? We are at home, just Myself, Paul and the girls, Matt is cooking Christmas dinner for himself and Alex, Alex only gets Christmas day and Boxing day off, so it's important for them to spend it together. Becca & Adam are hosting Christmas Dinner for a fully booked Restaurant, after which they are travelling down to Lymington to Adam's Parents for a couple days, they will call in and see us on their way home. It will seem very quiet after last weekend but we are looking forward to a more relaxed day, we had everyone with us last year on Christmas Day so we have earnt a quiet one. !!!
Today's card I sat and finished yesterday, I started along with a couple of other projects on Monday while waiting for the GP to call, I just couldn't concentrate on one thing! I die cut a piece of the Cottage Rose Dsp using the matching die set, I love that it has monochrome pages included, after die-cutting the Dsp I used the same die to cut some funky foam and the black card that would create the main focus of my card. I adhered the die cut flowers and stems to the funky foam, this really raised the detailed flowers from the backing, I simply had to fit the pieces back into their correct aperture on the card front. I finished the card with a simple sentiment. I think it looks quite effective. I included a side shot so that you could see the depth.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all,
