A quick christmas card...

I am on roll with my blog. Hope it lasts! To be honest with the school holidays it has been a busy time. Lots of fun things happening even if the weather was against us! Can't complain at least we only had bad rain some places had major flooding and over the seas the weather has caused death and destruction.

We went to Legoland and stayed overnight...Twycross Zoo...Kids Kingdom...Bike Trips...Brixworth Country Park (followed the Little Grey Men trail and went pond dipping).I also passed my (car) theory test...
I love the holidays having my boy at home with me and when he goes back the house seems so empty, although he does miss having his friends to play with. The key is not to let boredom set in...

On the whole not much time was given to crafting most of the projects posted are old BUT I did manage to squeeze some cards in...
I was sent some cuttlebug embossing folder samples from a good friend. I must admit only having used 2x2 goosebumps I wasn't a big embossing fan. Now I have a list of cuttlebug folders. I didn't want to waste the samples (us crafters are resourceful people) I made some cards but because alot of the card surfaces were shiny it reflects off the camera. Did manage to get one though...


I painted the berries and leaves, used a green pen to draw branches, mounted the card onto red then pinking sheared around the edge.
Gold embossed a greeting banner and added to the bottom of the card.




Thanks for looking.
