Good morning and a very Happy New Year to you all. I sincerely hope that 2016 brings you all health and happiness and if maybe not rich in pocket, certainly rich in love and laughter.
A quick post as I'm sure you will have better things to be doing today. Sadly, I am at work. Yes, someone higher up the food chains' (and who wouldn't be working!!) idea to trial opening on Boxing Day and New Years Day and as my poor manager would have been saddled with both days with our working pattern, I volunteered to swap and do New Years Day for her (I know, I'm daft and soft but at least my conscience will be clear).
Now, my first card of 2016 is the Christmas card I made for Mr D's brother and his partner. I went down a sort of contemporary route and flattish as it was a postal jobbie.
Silver mirror card
Platinum card (Lime Tree)
CE Frosty Swirls embossing folder
SB 2012 Holiday Tree die (cut out of double sided sticky & gilded....very tricksy!!!)
Silver gilding flakes
Double sided sticky sheet
Silver bling (Mei Flower)
I have also done a version in gold (hope I remembered to photograph it) but my goodness, combining a detailed die, sticky sheet and gilding flakes was like juggling with treacle........sticky and messy lol!!!
I apologise in advance that I have a few Christmas projects to show over coming posts so the memories of turkey and tinsel may linger, somewhat like other turkey lingerings at this time of year lol!!!
Hopefully, the neighbours won't have created the racket they did last year (necessitating my knocking on their door at 2am) or I may not actually be at work and be helping the local constabulary with their enquiries instead lol!!!
At least the tent with a paddling pool inside didn't re-appear this year..........mind you, that's probably down to the gale force winds and torrential rain.
Thank you for support during 2015 and I look forward to seeing you all this year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
