Busy day ahead ...... there's still quite a bit on the 'To Do' list for this week, and it all needs to be finished by the close of business TODAY! It's time to lock myself away in the old craft room and get some work done!!
I've a nice weekend to look forward to though, starting tomorrow ....... my big brother and his family are coming over for the weekend - yeah! That's why I need to get everything done.
It's Merry Monday time again ....... my weekly Christmas card! Yes I'm still keeping up with this challenge ..... I received another Honorable Mention last week for my Rudolph card,
The theme this week is .......
Use HOLLY on our cards
I had to think about this one .... then I remembered I had a die that I didn't get around to using when doing last years festive makes (hmmmm .... there's a surprise!) so I thought I'd give it an outing.
The die's from Penny Black - Holly Berries (51-019). It's a really pretty, delicate die and cuts beautifully.
I used green cardstock, and added the berries using fine red glitter
You can see I've been Fran-taging again (I love this stuff!!) I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock (Penny Black stamp 3243F .....the most)
I cut two of the holly sprigs, and cut one down a little for the front of the card. Nothing was wasted though as you'll see later. I added a pretty satin bow to tie them both together
I mat and layered with the traditional red and green colours (to match the holly) and here's where the left over bit went ......
..... to decorate the inside, along with one of my favourite Christmas sentiments .... another from Penny Black.
Well I suppose I'd better get a move on ..... things to do and all that.
Thanks for popping by today, enjoy your Thursday.
I'll be back tomorrow for the new IndigoBlu Challenge. If you haven't entered the current one there's still a little bit of time left ..... the theme is From the Heart and you have until 8pm TONIGHT to get your entries in. As always there's a great prize up for grabs ...... but you have to be in it to win it!
Cheerio for now ......
