Hi all hope you all had a fab bonfire night although listening to all the bangs outside I think many people round here are just carrying on with the party.
My first card tonight, now my son has finally deamed to let me onto the computer... well after our lengthy visit to pre admission clinic for his up coming surgery (and I decided it wasn't worth the hassle of getting him back to school for his PE lesson , which he does physio in anyway and after being messed about with wouldn't have done much) he opted to do some geography course work and needed the computer. I don't want to put him off that, but he decided after 2 1/2 hours he needed to unwind by playing Sims. I tried hovering behind him and asking if I could go on the computer but only now 'has he finally got his family to a place to save.'
More important things my card, well my first card.
I bought this stamp last year and only used it on one card but I think its so sweet, but my great granny would have gone mad had I given her a card with it on, she was so superstitious and wouldn't even have pictures of birds in the house as birds indoors brought bad luck.
My little cuties I decided to experiment with, I know robins normally have red chests but one of the challenges I'm entering it for is over at Cute Diasy May and they wanted a Blue Christmas.
Colour Create also have a theme of blue, white and silver with optional winter and glitter, so now you know why my cuties are blue breasted robins.
I thought I might also enter this card into the new challenge over at Susies Sassy Challenge as they have a theme of christmas and I did make this as a christmas card.
Lastly but by no means least the layout of the card the starting point, is from cupcake challenge #64, and I think its a fab layout and may well be going into my little book of favourite layouts.
The picture doesn't show up the colours or glitter very well, or the snowflakes on the paper I used for the strips and the medallion snowflake I made.there is silver glitter around the edges of the verticle strips and on the embossing of the snowfake, sorry but I know your all good at visualisation, you are crafters afterall.
