Weekend's on it's way again (yeah!)
Had enough of Christmas yet? No ...... oooh good! If you're screaming YES!!!! at me right now ...... sorry, because I thought I'd stick with the festive theme for this weeks Less is More Challenge
It's Sketch week and here's what we had to follow ......
Very simple and straightforward ..... lots of white space as always.
Here's my take on it .... what do you think?
I've turned it round a little ..... gone for landscape rather than portrait. Still CAS enough I hope ....... and I've included the partial panel on the front ... sort of ...... with the dusting of ink.
The snowflakes are a mix of Stampin Up! ( the large one in the centre) and Penny Black for the smaller ones ..... and they've been stamped using various shades of blue ink
Once these were dry I brushed over the top using Stormy Sky Distress Ink to get the look of the panel from the sketch ....
The sentiment is from the Happy Little Stampers ...... Mixed Christmas Sentiments
And I finished off with a touch of fine crystal glitter on the main snowflake ..... done!
It wouldn't be me if there wasn't something on the inside too .....
More sparkly snowflakes and a nice festive greeting ....... perfect!
We were down there last night for the Christmas preview evening ..... lots of festive displays full of glittering baubles and twinkling lights, with the odd Christmas carol being played in the background ...... Ho! Ho! Ho!
No mulled wine though this year (sigh!) ..... maybe we were a little too early!!
I couldn't resist topping up the old tree decorations though, all the sparkle got to me! ....... a little red and gold for the main tree .... nice!
And some icy silver and white for the one that's usually in the hall ..... pretty!
Now I'm a bit weird when it comes to buying baubles ...... I always have to buy them in odd numbers. I just didn't realise that last night I ended up with 13 (oh no!) .... unlucky for some ..... unlucky for us actually!
When we got back to the car we realised that hubby had left the headlights on (long story but, the car no longer beeps when you get out and leave the lights on ..... so you forget sometimes)
Now we hadn't been in there that long but, the battery was dead! Car wouldn't start, nothing there .... completely drained ...... just marvelous!!
We had planned on going on somewhere to get dinner out but instead we were stuck on the garden centre car park!
After a few phone calls to see if we could get some jump leads, or someone to pick us up we decided to get a cab and go on to the restaurant anyway ..... Lauren's boyfriend could come to the rescue (again!) but not for a couple of hours. So off we went .... well, we were out anyway!
We had a fabulous meal down at a place called The Forge ..... good food, nice wine and we virtually had the place to ourselves, there was only a couple of other people in there.
We got picked up later, went back to our little old car and would you believe it ...... tried the engine and she started straight away ..... what was all that about!!!?
So, no messing around with jump leads in the dark ...... the evening ended well after all. I must remember to buy a couple more baubles though ..... I'm not leaving it a 13!!!
Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.
Cheerio until next time
