Well this is the last card I have to make, now just the just in case cards then that's christmas cards done for another year and we can start looking forward to spring.
Talk about plans go to pot, my son came home yesturday and before he had even got in the house announced as he only had one lesson today his head of 6th form year had told him it wasn't worth him going in and he could work from home. I of course thought he was winding me up but when I phoned school he wasn't. He still gets his mark but I had planned on a bit of housework, a bit of washing, putting up the tree etc and a cuppa and some crafting before he came home at lunchtime.
He says if I wait till he has done his work he'll help me , well it's good to know he finally has his christmas spirit as he didn't want the tree up etc but as I know he will get distracted with facebook and Sims and whatever else there is on his computer as well as sauntering through doing the work he has I think I would still be there at 6pm tonight. I'm hoping he get so distracted I can get on and he won't notice. The best laid plans and all that. I have to admit though it's nice that he wants to help and will keep an eye on the washing and tumble dryer if I'm busy, so at least I know I've trained him well.
This card is for my hubby Tim, who also happens to be my best friend next to my son and mum, 3 best friends aren't I lucky. I decided to use the LOTV winter bunnies stamp again as I do love it and more white on white as I found hidden amongst some other papers some pearlised white. I did lots of dry embossing both on the base card and the pearl paper and finished with some ribbon, white and red to tie in with my colouring of monotone with a splash of red. I love all the different shades of grey in my promarkers, and thought it would make hubby's card a little more unusual than traditional colours, hope he likes it. Of course there had to be some sparkle so stickles and sakura stardust glaze pen for that.
Sorry about the picture but I took this yesturday and had to have the lights on as we were having a snow downfall at the time and it really makes the photos look grainy. I tried no flash, soft flash, auto flash micro mode and auto focus in various combinations and messed with the picture in photo editing and this is the best I could come up with. If we have any fine brightish weather today I'll try again, time and son and memory permitting of course.
