I am so fed up with broken heating, condensation and assosiated problems, and drainage issues that today I shut myself away with a fan heater and frequent cups of coffed to try and forget about it all for a while.
Here is a card I made:
The current challenge at Merry Monday is Bells. I scratched around for ideas, not having any bell stamps or dies and plan a and b failed before I remembered that I have some actual bells. These are left over from a sewing project.
I stamped this wreath in Meadow then added the pine cones in Espresso. I mounted it on some green paper then glitterd around the edge using double sided tape. I can safely say that everything in a 1/2 mile radius is now covered in glitter too.
I made the tiny double bow and then sewed on the bells with gold thread, stitching them right through the card so they will not fall off. The having the thread lying about, I twiddled some in the middle of the card too.
After several false starts I finally had someting to show. Not one for posting though...
The stamps are all from a set I received with Creative Stamper magazine.
I'm also liking to Rudolph Days February challenge - make a Christmas card.

What a beautiful card you've here created Alison and the colours are just perfect, I love it. I've used some of the same stamps on my card for this month's Rudolf Day Challenge and aren't they fabulous. I've used them more than stamps that I've paid a fortune for! Great card :)ReplyDelete
