Isn't nice when you picture something in your head & things turn out more or less as you'd hoped! Maybe you know the feeling well, but for me, it's more of a trial & error process. Rather more error than I'd really want, truth be told!! Anyway, I'm really pleased with my card for this weeks recipe challenge at Crafts for Eternity. This week, we would like you to follow the sketch, include an image of Santa & use brads on your card.
My Santa imageis by Personal Impressions & is one of the first stamps I bought, a few years ago. He scrubs up quite nicely with Promarkers! The sentiment is from last Xmas' Magnolia collection. It quotes one of my favourite Xmas songs! The DPs are Basic Grey, Wassail - again! Getting bored of these now, but I bought too much. I have to keep plugging away at them. To create the circle I used brads & I wrapped embroidery thread round each one.
Well there you go. Sorry I'm a bit late with this, but it's been quite a busy day. We took the boys to see Planet 51 this morning. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought after I read a one star review of it yesterday! I'd give it 3. But the boys really enjoyed it which is the main thing! Then I had to go to Jack's school Xmas fair. By the time we got there, there was not much left, so I hope that means they made loads of money!! I've just found 5 minutes for a cup of tea, before I tackle the European ironing mountain!!
Thanks for looking. Please pop over to the C4E blog to see the sketch & the fabulous creations of my fellow DT colleagues. Michele is also offering another set of her cute digi images as a prize. What more incentive do you need to knock another Xmas card off your list!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
