A Christmas Card and an Award.....
Hiya! Things are steadily becoming a little more under control.... first Christmas pressies and cards have been delivered but there's still a way to go yet! This is the first christmas card I've actually sent out this year and it's for my dear old (less of the "old", Melanie!) Dad. I've used a LOTV image sent to me by Debs (thankyou!) and coloured using a mix of promarkers, glitter gel pens and glitter glue. I've managed to use Jenny's "out-of-the-box" technique to cut it out using my nesties without removing the top of the lamp-post (very chuffed with myself!). I won the the papermania ribbon from Suzanne (thankyou!) and I embossed the white card using the Sizzix polka daisies texturz which I think look more like snowflakes than daisies! I got the gold mirror card at the NEC aswell as the gold embossing powder I used to emboss the "Dad" sentiment - another one of papermania's clear stamps.
Phew! How did I ever manage to make cards without all my blogging pals, eh? I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Anything Christmassy/Winter
Sarah Hurley - Embossing
LOTV - Glitter and Glitz
Whoopsi Daisy - Holiday
Cards for Men - Christmas Cards
And, before I go I'd just like to thank Suzanne for thinking of me and sending me the above award for my blog! Thankyou so much!!!! And now I must pass it on to 5 of my pals:
Going to go and put the kettle on..... Have a fab evening!
Love 'n' hugs,
