Have you got snow? Ours has all disappeared (sigh!). It came down on Wednesday evening, and disappeared on Thursday. It stuck around on the mountains a little while longer but even that's all gone today.
If you've got a covering of the white stuff ..... stay cosy and warm. Why not join in the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge ..... it's definitely the weather for it!
This week it's all about Carol Singers or Music ....... 'deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la laaa la la la la!'
(ooops .... sorry for the ear worm!)
It's going to be those trees all over again (used on nearly every card from last year!!) .... only this time it's my little carol singing mice .......
Yes they're having another outing on this weeks entry ...... to be honest they were never put away from the Critters week!!
A bit of a different look though ...... I've kept their colours to neutral shades with a little splash of red
The words and music is a Clarity Stamp ...... I've stamped it directly onto the white card, then stamped it again on a separate piece, and embossed it using a clear powder.
I then cut away the words leaving just the band of music. Colour was added using Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress inks, and then it was layered over the top onto the finished card
The final touch was to add the holly leaves ..... stamped, coloured with Copic markers, then cut out and attached to the edge of my snowy scene
I kept the inside clean and simple .....
more holly, and one of my favourite sentiments from Clarity Stamps.
Well .... that's January nearly over. The 'To Do' list has been done so I can have a nice relaxing weekend. I don't even have to cook this evening, it's take away for tea ..... the football's on! Important game this evening ........ VERY important!!! My boys in blue (Chelsea) are taking on Man City. We're currently 5 points clear at the top of the table, and we'd like to make the gap bigger!!! So maybe this evening won't be so relaxing after all ...... tense I think would be a better description.
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy your weekend.
Cheerio until next time ........See you in February!
