Glittering the Tree

Good morning chaps and chapesses. Hope this finds you all in fine fettle (what is a fettle anyway?). Hope those sunning themselves in St Lucia and Leicester are settled into their new surroundings. Makes me want to get away (not to Leicester. . . . . .no offence but its not that far from me). Haven't had a holiday this year yet as we are looking at September/October. Now I'm getting back to normal (I do mean that loosely Patricia lol!!!) I'm thinking of a trip to a foreign pond.

Now, we have another Christmas card. I told you I would go mad with this stamp. Thank you all for your lovely comments about my last card. Don't worry, I'm expecting divided opinion on this one hahaha!!!
Sorry Wilma, but as you can see, the number of germs I have, is not inversely proportionate to the level of "not in your face" with my cards. 
The base is a 6x6 white card blank. I then cut a slightly smaller mat out of a piece of card that I had left from my shaving foam shannanigans. I stamped this with the Baroque Christmas Tree stamp in a mid blue pigment ink and then heat embossed with my Ranger sticky embossing powder. I then added some superfine twinkly blue glitter (this looks so sparkly when the lights on) onto this and rubbed it in well. Pink heat embossed sentiment and all done.
I could get used to this speedy crafting mularky. 
Well th, th, that's all folks. Have a super splendid day wherever you are and thank you so much for popping by for a paddle again.

  13. Good afternoon,
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my card.
    I did the "rolls" for my lace and thought popping them in the pretty basket was a good idea. If I keep it "tidy" I can leave it on display in my bedroom. Well that's the theory anyway!!!
    Hope you have had a good day
