Good morning my little duckadees. Hope your fettles are fine and everything else for that matter. Can't believe we're in December, who pinched the rest of the year without me noticing? Mr Duck's birthday is the week before Christmas so I always have a double whammy for thinking of pressies. I did suggest he may like to sponsor a tiger/panda but that was met with a stare, which I read as "no". Did think he may like to sponsor my crafty endeavours or a week in the Bahamas but thought that may be met with a similar stare so didn't suggest it.
Thanks everyone for your comments on my embossing mask. I've done a snowflake one as well and some none Christmas ones too. Yes Sue, its a much cheaper way of doing it (I confess, I'm tighter than a fishes oojits) and you get a pattern you want/need.
Thanks too for your good wishes about the job. I have worked my socks off, so if they don't keep me, it won't be due to laziness. 12lb lost in just over 3 wks so I'm not slacking. I'll need to keep working to afford the new wardrobe I'll need hahaha!!!
Hi Donna. I'm very flattered that you think I should apply for the HOC DT. I shall try and fit something in before the deadline so thank you for your suggestion.
Ita, thanks so much for your comment. It was lovely to hear from you again chuck and glad to know your on the mend. Glad I provided a bit of amusement for the nurses too.
Now, today's card was a quickie (a common thread at the moment I'm afraid). Its an A5 white card base with a layer of silver holographic card straight on top (gutted in the centre. . . . .being a good girl for Patricia).
I then cut a slightly smaller piece of white card and ran this through the GC with a Splodgeaway "White Christmas" mask (there are three in the set) across the middle. The song instantly pops into my head when I see this but I resist the urge to warble out loud as poor Bing would spin at warp factor six if he heard me.
I stamped the snowflakes (25p bargain bin stamp from my local craft shop) with VersaMark and then brushed with silver mica powder.
With some holographic snippets, I cut four Marianne's Creatables Snowflakes and made two fuller snowflakes, sticking two of them together, than added bling to the centres.
It does look better in real life as it was a tricksy business trying to photograph it at the right angle to capture the embossing. Having a white background behind the card was probably not the smartest move (will withdraw that job application to David Bailey lol !!!)
That's all folks for today. Hope you have a super day and keep warm and well.
