I am starting my Christmas cards sooooo late … that I am beginning to think that I am going to have to steal all my designs from my fav blog friends to make the process a little quicker. This is one that I made a week or so ago … on our stamping day (after Jenny left to go home!) I was keen to do something more than the one card we achieved that day … but with very little time left that afternoon … I went scrolling for some inspiration. This card is almost a direct CASE from Amanda Reddicliffe.
This is a different stamp … and I have added a layer of card & a sponged edge … but basically it is just the same as Amanda’s! The snowflakes are embossed using white embossing powder. Don’t be afraid to heat emboss … it really is a quick technique … and sooooo effective! This one came together really quickly. (It helps when you don’t have to think too much!)
I am sorry I didn’t get here yesterday! After a day out at my m-i-l’s with Stace & Bree … I came home feeling like this little “cold” that I have was beginning to freshen up … and I was feeling a little miserable & self indulgent! So … instead of blogging … I lay down on the lounge and watched the 2 hr final of the Renovators (I had taped it when I was out on Thurs night) … and then the 2 hr episode of SYTYCD (US). I just couldn’t get myself off that lounge! The 3 youngest kids went out to the movies … so Gav, Shane (who was doing uni assignments) & I fossicked in the freezer and found 3 “left over” meals … and so I didn’t even get up to make dinner. Even though this is very out of character for me … I did enjoy being totally lazy for an afternoon/evening. 😀 😉
Well … Gav & I are off tomorrow to use the gift voucher that Stacey & Jono gave me for my birthday / mother’s day pressie! It is a 2 night stay at a nice little resort on the Hawkesbury River. A perfect escape … at a perfect time! I won’t be back here until Tuesday night … but am hoping to do a couple of scheduled posts for while I am away! See you all soon! Please pop back over the weekend to check for those posts! Hugs xx
