Did you have a good weekend?
I'm starting the week with a touch of the Christmas spirit ..... still a bit early for some I know but it is on it's way!
And speaking of Christmas I've managed to get my countdown working properly ..... yeah!! Well, when I say I've got it working ....... I really mean hubby did it!!!
It now runs automatically when I log on ..... no need to click on the thing to set it going .... whoo hoo!! I know it was nothing major but it was driving me mad! It still might not run automatically for everyone that reads my blog ..... everyone on Chrome that is. If that's you and you're interested to know how we fixed it then check out this link ....... it will explain everything!
I'm getting this week underway by playing along with the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge ..... this month the key word is ..... POINSETTIA
I love poinsettias at Christmas ..... I haven't managed to keep one alive much past the end of January though so I have to get a new one each year.
Saying that I do have a fake one that sits on the fireplace during the festive season ..... that one I can look after. It gets dusted off, covered in a protective bag and put away with the rest of the decorations ..... simple!!
Anyway ..... here's another card for the Christmas box ......
So CAS, and another of my favourites .... white on white ...... always looks great!
I found these die cuts letters on my desk (done for another project but then changed my mind). I've layered two together for extra depth .....
and simply stuck them onto a piece of white card. I stamped part of a festive greeting underneath (from the HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments) and then added the required pretty little die cut Poinsettia.
A few tiny gemstones in the centre, and some dots of glitter glue here and there for added sparkle, finishes everything off nicely .......
Right .... better get a move on now. I've got a delivery coming this morning, a friend is stopping by to pick up a parcel so that'll be a coffee and a nice catch up and I've got to go into town.
I've also got a workshop to prep before Wednesday. Good job I got to spend some time in the old craft room over the weekend!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a great week.
Oooh .... Hello and welcome to my latest follower too! I've just noticed that Anita has joined us on the Craft Lane ...... thank you for spending time here, hope you enjoy your visits.
Cheerio until next time
