Festive Fun

Hello Everyone,

OK own up Who has taken the sun today?? its been cloudy all day and the
temperature  sure has dropped a few degrees.  Hope you have all been busy
doing your own thing, me I have been doing housework, boring I know
but you have to do it.  Managed to catch Christina on C&C at noon, it
was her first time and I must say she handled it great.  She was demonstrating
Spellbinder and yes I did end up purchasing a couple of items - well you
just have to don't you!!.

Today I thought I would enter into the spirit of YES Christmas, hope
you like.

1. Started out with an 5 x7 card base to this I added a piece of
red mirri board.
2. Taking a piece of white card I embossed it with a snowflake
      design, I then added definition by using Metallic Gilding Wax
Ultramarine by Creative Expressions to the snowflakes.

3.  The image is by Amy Design and its called Christmas Couple.
       This I stamped onto a circle die cut frame from Spellbinder and
               coloured using pro-markers. I then added an overlay of snow acetate
and using foam pads I adhered it to the card.

    4. Taking a piece of polka dot ribbon I threaded it around the frame    
 and  added pieces of holly to give it a wreath effect.

5. The sentiment was die cut out of red mirri board using the
Robert Adams sentiment dies.

                    And there you have it, I would like to thank you all for taking the
               time to follow me and to welcome my new followers and to
                  thank  you  all for the comments on my work, I really do love 
reading them  and appreciate them.

So Folks that's it for today, hope you will come back for
another visit.

 As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
