Good morning lovely bloggy folk. Hope you're all well but if not, I send best wishes to you for a speedy recovery.
My last day off before working straight through to Saturday, then Sunday and Monday (I can see Kate and Maureen folding their arms as I type)............. .............Well, I just have to accept, in life, sometimes you're the dog and sometimes you're the lamp post lol!!!
Welcome to Karen and Ginny. Lovely to have you aboard girls and I hope you can visit often.
Before I forget, Maria, the flower border on my last card is a Hobbycraft border punch and Wendy (Yorkshire Butterfly) the flower and leaf dies are Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster.
Now, I'm fairly sure that this is the last of my Christmas cards from this last Christmas. This one went to our next door neighbours.
CE Frosty Swirls embossing folder
SW Christmas Tree Greetings die
SB Grand Ovals dies
Red funky foam
Teeny red bling
Same as the previous Christmas card, I have cut the Christmas Tree die out of funky foam a couple of times to add depth without having to struggle with teeny bits of foam pad. Plus, I think it adds a more solid depth, if that makes sense.
Once again, I covered the top layer in glue and dunked it (sorry, no biscuits involved again Elaine) in red glitter.
Simple but stylish, I hope, and very good for batch making.
Better late than never, here's a snap of my NEC purchases last month.........................
Very restrained, wouldn't you say? In fact, I think I spent more on the ticket, *parking and my lunch hahaha!!!
The Justrite background stamps were the big bargain at £2.50 each in Samuel Taylors bargain bin. Not something I was hankering after but at that price, it would have been rude not to.
The floral strip along the bottom, held down with the scissors and quilling tool is actually ribbon.
I saw it on a card on the Mei Flower stall and thought it was a die cut border but then discovered its ribbon. Its going to be a beggar to glue down, no doubt, but I couldn't resist it.
Sorry, that's as exciting as my purchases got. The highlight was my thrice yearly catch up with Mrs H (Christine).
Looks like everyone had a good time at Ally Pally so I'm sorry to have missed a catch up with Karenlotty and meeting some more of you lovely gals.
Val, Wendywoo will have many a tale to tell you when she gets home and John said she was a star.
Anyhoo, this won't get the lady a baby as my dear Mum used to say, so I shall bid you adieu until Thursday when I'm back with my latest MAWTT DT card.
Hope you can join me then.
Ps.........yes Kate, I know I'm working too hard but until you agree to minimum wage and my own room, I'm not becoming Teallach's groomer lol!!!
