Good morning Duckadees and Haaaaaaaaapppppppy Neeeeeew Yeeeeeeeeear !!!
I hope that all you wonderful folks have had a super Christmas and not too much of a headache this morning. If you're seeing two ducks, go and lie down.
We had a lovely quiet Christmas time which suited us and a lovely dins. Daft but my favourite thing about a roast dinner is roast potatoes. I have managed to perfect the crisp outside with the fluffy middle and there's nothing quite like a spot on spud!!! (I'm easily pleased)
Not too many left overs with the 3 birder so didn't have to resort to turkey rissoles, turkey fricassee or the legendary turkey trifle.
Stayed in to see in the New Year as I have to work today, the curse of retail but I can't complain. Thanks for your lovely congratulatory comments about the job. I was moved from baubles and tinsel (a somewhat depleted section now) to . . . . . . . . Arts and Crafts woooooo hoooooo!!! They knew I had a penchant for crafting so the manager on that section was happy to have me and I'm like a duck in muck!!!
Anyhoo, you all have better things to be doing today, like another roast dinner for some, hair of the dog for others and is there a James Bond on?
Now, I'm going to show the last couple of Christmas cards today and next time so I hope you don't mind.
This is a bit similar to Patricia's last post (here). It is a 5x7 cream card base topped with the largest of the SB Elegant Labels Four cut from burgundy PMD card. I then cut the next die in the set out of cream card and also the tree from the SB Holiday Tree 2012 set.
I nipped away the bottom scrolly bits (a technical term) from the tree, see above, then used it as an embossing mask to emboss the cream label.
I then added gold bling as baubles, foam padded this to the burgundy layer and voila!
I like to emboss this way now as sometimes using the die, its too harsh and cuts the card or you can't nip bits to fit, like with this one.
I don't think Christine has read my last post so if you're in the pond today Christine, check the last post then email me.
Thanks again for all of your fabulous and supportive comments and here's to happy, healthy and wonderful times in 2014 for us all.
