Snowflakes and Swags. . . . . . . . .


Good morning all. Hope you are well. Happy Black Friday!!!

Thank you for your kind words for Nesta. I think that she is in practical mode at the moment and it will hit her at the funeral.

I'm at the hairdressers this morning then lunch with a school chum I have kept in touch with. I'm thinking of re-instating my fringe. Those of you who have met me know how long my hair is so there will be about a foot of hair coming off to create a fringe lol!!!

Now, I'm fairly sure that this is the last of the samples I made for John's last shows and I'm currently in the thick of preparing some for next weeks shows.......keeps me off the streets lol!!!
Its one of my favourite Christmas cards I have made.


Ingredients
Cream, red and green card
John Next Door Snowflake Circle embossing folder
John Next Door Build A Wreath stamp set
John Next Door Winter Trees stamp set (sentiment)
Sue Wilson Snowflake Gemini die
CS Berry Red PVA pearls
Various green inks dib dabbed onto the stamp


The bottom layer is embossed to half way and the top layer also by hanging the embossing folder over the edge of the GC plates.
The green card forms a drop shadow and is a one piece layer.......you cut the Gemini first then line up to give the shadow and mark where to cut the top and sides to give a sigle piece layer.

Hope you like it as much as I do.

Final GP of this season this weekend so I shall apply for custody of the remote control. I'm sure Mr D will be happy to surrender as he knows I'm not likely to nag him or make him vaccuum when the GP is on lol!!!

Have a great weekend and see you next week.

Ps.......relieved to hear that the "full frontal" Wisty attack has been suspended but am concerned about a tunnel. If you apply for planning permission for that, it will take months from this council lol!!!
Will have to take subsidence into account too.........especially for us middle aged ladies lol!!!

  2. Gorgeous card today. My style too. Have to say I'm getting fed up with making them probably because I started too late and they're a rush. Just got specials to do now.
    New look Ang? Please let us know.

  5. Hi Ang,
    I am so sorry to hear about Nesta's Dad.
    I still miss mine terribly even after 4 years.
    My deepest sympathy to her and her family.

    Your card is gorgeous, and very stunning.
    Super design and brilliantly created.
    Love all the red berries too.
    Sorry I have been away so long I have been very busy creating for the bazaar.
    Lots of crafty love, and hugs. Jenny L.

  7. Hi Ang a beautiful card, all those little berries must have taken you ages to do. Pleased to hear Nesta is coping ok but as you say there is so much to do that grieving is delayed. You are certainly being busy with getting samples done for next week. Is cutting off your hair to make a fringe to help with weight loss?!! Have a good weekend love from Jackie xx

  8. Hi Ang

    A very stunning card indeed!

    Hope you like your fringe if you decide to 'go for it'. I qualified as a hairdresser some 250 years ago and 'we' liked nothing better to slice away from no fringe to a fringe lol

    My sincere thoughts are with Nesta, her family and you dear lady

    Take care

  10. Hello Ang,
    This is a gorgeous card, and I'll let you have my address any time ha ha.
    I hope you are feeling much better now and enjoy the GP, I'll be watching paint dry instead! I also hope that Nesta is bearing up.
    Now then Yorks Butterfly. Forget tunnels, we'd get all hot and sweaty. Auntie Mary's red silk bloomer balloon is famous among my friends and has the bonus of being silent and efficient. Just the job for a wisty attack from a great height and Ang would never expect an attack from above. I'm preparing the abseiling ropes as we speak!!!
