Merry Christmas

Just popping in to wish you All  Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year.

At the moment I'm still without my computer  - didn't realise I'd miss it so much - and without a keyboard I find blogging so slow, sorry for lack of visits.

Best Wishes,
Avril xx

Santa's on His Way

Well, hopefully Santa's on his way, as there's only a week left before the big day and this card  also fits in as a reminder that you still have a week left to join in the last challenge of the year at Try it on Tuesday, where our theme is Christmas is Coming.

I masked Santa, before stamping the background and added some holy stamping before adding to a tartan layer for a traditional vintage look.  Some festive greens and jute ribbon to complete.

I'm hoping to do some visiting, but it's a bit slow a the moment - (my computer has developed a very wicked gremlin with a mind of it's own, but hopefully, the nice man in the computer repair shop can  get rid of him) so any commenting will be using my phone for the next few days.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

Christmas is Coming

It's the last challenge of the year at Try it on Tuesday and the them is a nice easy one Christmas is Coming - and as usual it's up top you what you make.

I've opted for a card and used this jolly Santa, stamped onto white card, then masked while I coloured the background with Tumbled Glass DI.  I stamped some second generation snowflakes with Iced Spruce.  The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with clear EP.

The rest of the DT have some great inspiration so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find all the challenge details.

Have a great day.

The First Snowflake

Hello, well after a lovely relaxing holiday, I think I  need to get into panic mode and finish making some Christmas cards otherwise I'll end up buying some.

I did die cut quite a few snowflakes before I went away, so they were just waiting to be layered up and all I needed was the background.  This background has been lying around for quite a while and the swirls were already brushed with silver paint, so I used a mica spray to add some shimmer before using a silver mirri base card and then added the snowflake which was silver - white glitter card and then a lovely pale blue glitter card, unfortunately the colours just don't show.

It's a start, just need to find some more backgrounds for the stack of die cut snowflakes!

I am going to enter this at  Allsorts  where the theme this week is Snowmen/and or Snowflakes.

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx
