Winter's Evening

Good Afternoon, my crafty friends, followers and visitors

How are we all today, weather not been to bad managed to get my garden done
and boy does my back know it.
              I told you the other day that hubby was taking me out for the day and would 
             not tell me where, well I can tell you we went to Quarry Bank Mill in Styal
          Cheshire ( it's about 40 mins drive from us).    If any of you are watching 
          The Mill on Sundays thats the mill that its based on and some scenes have
       been filmed there, mostly where the machines are.  We has a super day 
and its a nice place to visit, lovely gardens, nice cafe and the weather 
 was kind to us, what more can you ask for.

Well today I thought I would share another Christmas card with you again
using the Tattered Lace window Die (I do like this die)


1. Started with an 8 x 8 scolloped edged card to which I have
added another piece of card that I have embossed with a snowflake

2. To enhance the snowflakes I have used Pinfliar Buff-it in Silver.
Before the panel was mounted onto the card I took  a piece of
tartan  ribbon and wrapped it around.

3. Using red mirri board I cut out the window with the Tattered
Lace Window die, I then took a winter scene from Robert Adams
CD Christmas Trees cut it down to fit behind the die then
adhered it to the card.

4. The pointsettia was cut using the Spellbinder die out of cream
centura pearl card and glittered (although its not showing up)
a red gem was added to the middle.  The flourish was again cut
using the same centura pearl cream card and also glittered.

  5. To complete I used the Tattered Lace Winter Wishes die for the
           sentiment  and  added another piece of ribbon that has the greeting
 Merry Christmas printed on it.

Well my friends I am afraid that is it for today, hope you enjoyed 
your visit.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
