Added Thursday 23rd: I am so excited to win again over at Nicole’s Festive Friday challenges with this card! But … I am also a little embarrassed that I was 1 of 2 entries! (And … seriously … Nicki deserved the award too!) If you get a chance next week … please pop by Nicole’s blog and leave a bit of blog love … and please enter a card into her challenge! I am so glad to be getting a start on my Christmas cards … and by doing a card each week … I will have a huge pile … and no last minute throwing cards together!
Hi my friends!
Well … you all must be very busy … only 1 comment on yesterday’s card!!! But … I am SO not complaining … because I haven’t had a chance to do any blog hopping for a few days … so I certainly know how life can get in the way of creativity & blogging! I just hope you are doing okay? I thought I should post my card for Nicole’s Festive Friday #6 challenge … before the deadline! …
The idea for Nicole’s challenges is to take inspiration from the Christmas Cards that her DT girls design each week. Well … my inspiration this week is actually from a couple of cards! I have used “sparkle” – from Carolyn’s card … “punched squares” - from Tina’s card … “punch art Santa” - from Brook’s card … and “colours” from Tina & Nicole’s cards. I had fun creating the Santa … and I used the Iridescent Ice embossing powder (yes! … AGAIN!!!) to add the sparkle to the fur on Santa’s hat & his beard. PLEASE … PLEASE … IF YOU HAVE A FEW SPARE MINUTES … NICOLE WOULD LOVE SOME MORE ENTRIES FOR HER CHALLENGE! And … what a better way to get a head start on your Christmas cards.
Hhhhmmmm …. something suspicious is happening today. 2 of my girls are getting together to do “something” that I am not allowed to see!!!?????? Not sure what to make of that??? It has made me ask the question … do I trust my girls???? Well … yes … but I am not sure about this!!! Have a nice day … I am watching a DVD with my mum “The Secret Life of Bees”. I know nothing about it … but my sis & her girls said it was great! Hugs xxx
