Yet another week has flown by and we are now getting so near to my very favourite time of the year....yes CHRISTMAS!!
Four weeks tomorrow and the presents will have been opened, the turkey eaten and our family will probably be giggling over a game of cards...Chase the Ace is one of our firm family favourites.
Meanwhile I have been making some more cards and I am entering this particular one into a few card challenges.
Here it is
I have punch cut some snowflakes in white and silver and used plenty of Stickles diamond glitter glue to give some extra sparkle. I also used silver card as backing card to give some festive shine.
My backing papers are Dovecraft and I have finished everything off with a lovely die cut bell and a blue organza ribbon.
I used a LOTV circular sentiment for my Christmas message.
I am entering my card into the following challenges;
Lili of the Valley, challenge Anything Goes
Promarkers challenge 127 Swirls and sparkles (swirls in my backing paper and lots of glitter and foil to sparkle)
Winter Wonderland Challenge Nativity (Baby Jesus)
Totally Gorjuss Challenge 108 Sparkle
Scrapbook Sisters Challenge 61 Christmas Time
Paper Crafting-Journey Anything Goes
Ribbon Girl Challenge Jingle all the way to Christmas
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine Snowflake challenge
Thanks for looking at my card!
Today has been another incredible mild day and as I was outside tidying a little I spied that I STILL have some of my fuchsias in flower. I don't think I have ever had them last this long into the autumn. Just look at them, still adding some colour and grace to my little garden.
We are still awaiting the cold weather and have not even had more than a couple of frosty nights. How good is that! It was 15oc this afternoon. It has meant that I have been snug with my little heater on out in my studio, whenever I get any spare time, to work on the last of my cards and jewellery for this year.
I will be back with some more Studio news very soon to show you how things are coming along but will leave you with a little sneak peek of my cosy creative space taken this evening...!!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I hope you are starting your Christmas lists? Thank you as always for your visits and for taking the time to leave such lovely comments. It's always such a pleasure to see you here.
Bye for now,
