Well … it has felt like it was going to be a ‘freak’ white Christmas here this summer … but FINALLY it has warmed up … just in time for Christmas! 😀
Well … 1 sleep to go … and still baking to do … so I had better make this quick. I had 2 Christmas cards left to show you … so one will have to wait until I am desperately trying to find something to share. Both were ‘CASE cards’ and last minute “bulk” creations. So … I was very very thankful to use this design to get a few cards done quickly!Thanks so much to Lisa (Lavender Stamper) for her great inspiration. The thing that caught my eye on Lisa’s sample … was the pretty snow & snowflakes on the main image … and then I forgot to do them! (I think I was in a bit of a hurry!!!)
This red glimmer paper (& the silver) are PERFECT for adding something special to a card … to really make it pop. Photos really don’t show how pretty and sparkly this paper is … and I was so glad to have some in my stash this Christmas! I used River Rock instead of Lisa’s Crumb Cake (Kraft) … it is a nice contrast colour with the sparkly red! (Again … not so obvious in the photo). Well … I am off to do my baking today! 😀 Not too much to do … but that darn cassata didn’t get done yesterday … because Stace & Bree were here for the whole day after Stacey went to the gym … and I would much rather play with them! 😉 Just means I need to put my head down today! Shane, Skye & Sandy went up to Sydney last night to watch the “Big Bash” cricket game (only 20 overs per side … so it is fast and furious!) They had a blast … but didn’t get home until nearly 1.30am! And … then Skye, Sandy & Gav were up at 7am to get down to the beach to do some surfing. (Gav’s first try of his b’day wetsuit and surfboard.) Perfect waves today … but for the rest of the week … the cyclone (way out) in the Coral Sea will be affecting the swell … and it will probably be too big for beginners!!! 😀 So they were determined to get down there today!
Well … off to have some brekky … a nice cool shower … and then get into my cooking! I hope all your prep is going well … and that Christmas is a safe and happy time for you all! Take care … Hugs xxx
