Hello, I hope everyone enjoyed a good weekend and is feeling reshreshed and ready to face the week ahead. It was a quiet one here, a lovely visit from both my daughter and my son + small granddaughters but not much else going on so I thought I'd knuckle down and make a few Christmas cards while I had the chance.
It's a fairly simple design, I cut a square from a die cut rectangle of white card then embossed the remainder with a snowfall EF.
I had previosly made some inky card panels playing with Distress inks, brushos and mica sprays in shades of blue and purple so I cut one up to make the background behind behind the die cut snowflake in the above card. I added the die cut sentiment and a gem. Nice and quick so I used the same design to make 3 more similar cards. The black and the purple ones have glitter card behind the snowflakes which were rescued from one of the cards I received last Christmas, 4 more for my (sad little) Christmas pile.
Now that the weather has turned colder I've dug out Marvin's basket which we put away for the summer months as he was too warm in it and preferred his memory foam mattress or the cool kitchen tiled floor depending how hot the weather was. We did buy him a gel- filled cool pad...but he ate a hole in it , it lasted less than a day. As you can see he still fits in the basket....just ...and he appreciates having it back! I'm actually amazed that it survived those early puppy days when he took great delight in ripping everything to shreds. If he grows any more he'll need a bigger one though!
He looks so innocent here...butter wouldn't melt- don't be fooled- the camera does lie!
Thanks for visiting
