I was missing last week as life just took over and it was Wednesday before I had time to breathe! This week I am writing my blog again on Monday night and shall hopefully link up on Wednesday!
This week my desk is littered with Christmas stash after an afternoon (trying to avoid all the sport on telly) of Christmas crafting. I have in fact tidied up a bit for you….
The small sissors were used for cutting out the embossed white scene in the left in the corner. (I know why I don't do decoupage!)… hopefully to become another card. The tree scene also on the left stubbornly refuses to be made in to a card that I am satisfied with.. I have tried several layouts with it but nothing looks right! A pile of Lili of the valley stamps in the front in various stages of being coloured in. Then some completed cards on the right!
This is a huge step away from my usual more traditional cards. The stamp was one that I borrowed on our stampathon night at craft club and I used silver embossing powder on black card. I do like it but won't be doing anymore in black! I'm a traditionalist!
I also finished another reindeer and I've called him Midnight!
I could get addicted to making these little fellas!
I will leave you with two more photos, nothing to do with crafting but really cheered me up this week. The first is the tub outside my front door. I almost pulled the flowers out a few weekends ago as they were looking past their best, but look what a little Autumn warmth can do! I hope they last a little longer.
Secondly, the sky over the house at sunset last night.. absolutely spectacular!
Isn't nature wonderful?
Well, I am looking forward to visiting your desks later.
Have a happy week
