Good morning crafters, you’ve got me today as our poor Dawny has had a few problems with the horrible weather we’ve been having here in the UK and couldn’t do her post this morning
She’s been without power and of course that has a knock on effect to other things, what a nightmare, I hope you all escaped the storms and the awful floods that we’ve been seeing on the news. Thankfully we seem to miss the worst of it here and just end up with everyone’s recycling all over the place when the bins blow over!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed a few days off, it’s been a quiet one for us this year and to be honest it’s been really nice, I’m getting too old (and lazy) to do hectic!
This is a Christmas card that I made for my friend’s new baby nephew. It was meant to be my Papertake Weekly card before Christmas and I just never found time to take a picture so I’m happy to be able to share it with you today…
The cute image is called Just Arrived and is one of our new baby stamps which can be used for so many occasions
This one was from my colouring lesson using Distress Inks, our lovely Gretha spent some time teaching me when she came over in November,thank you so much Gretha (although I daren't tell my husband that I’ve gone off my Copics and Promarkers just as I’ve bought them all!!) Gretha also adds a touch of Twinkling H20 on top which adds some subtle sparkle and a bit more depth of colour than you get from the ink …I like the effect very much
I used gorgeous Fancy Pants papers which matched perfectly and made a little tuck away tag with my DooHickey star die and put his name on it
The trees are DooHickey slender fir dies. These Magnolia DooHickey dies are very popular and we have a selection available in the shop now (the shop re-opens on January 6th)
Hope you like it, thanks so much for stopping by everyone and I’ll be back on New Year’s Day with the rest of my top picks from 2013
Our Debbie will be here tomorrow with another lovely card so make sure you pop by if you get a minute
