A winter birthday card.



Hi folks!

Hope you have all had a great Christmas. With the New Year nearly upon us I wonder if many of you will make New Years resolutions. Mine are the same ol' same ol'.... try and eat healthily, do more exercise, spend more time outdoors as a family and of course, try to use more of my stash mountain than add to it.



I made this card a little while ago for a friend of mine in a birthday swap over on the Crafttelly forum. I used the then current Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Sketch. I think the DP is Dovecraft (do correct me if I'm wrong), one of the layers is white glitter board, I scalloped the edge using my Carl paper trimmer. I used my Cuttlebug and Swiss dot embossing folder on the acetate layer on top of which I placed hand cut vellum flowers held in place by eyelets. I used a selection of Nestabilities to make the next few layers. Embossed Swirls on one. The sentiment is HOTP. The cute image is 'Winter Mimi' over on Pink Gem Designs. I have coloured her using my Prismas and snow writer and glitter for the fir trims.



Lookie here!! I have been given this award buy the wonderful Sandra over on Cherry Pickin's. Thank you so much sweetie.
I think this one has done the rounds so I won't pass it on but how about this.... if you are reading this post and it's still 2008 why not grab it for yourself as a thank you from me for stopping by.

Wishing you all a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2009



Hugs

Hi Buddy, thank you for your lovely comment today and for the stunningly beautiful Christmas card, I loved it, sheer perfection that I'll treasure! Wish my decoupage looked like yours, it's so perfect and I can never get mine to curve like that, I need a lesson from the master!!! Hope your Christmas was good, ours was quiet but very nice. I'm going to try and do a tutorial, a few lovely people have asked if I will, but it needs to be video based as it's about the brushwork. Getting someone to hold the camera seems to be an insurmountable prob in this house at the moment LOL! Soon I hope. I like your new year resolutions and I expect the not adding to stash one will be broken in the January sales tee hee!!!!! Thanks for always making me laugh in 2008 and the constant inspiration, you're the best. HAPPY NEW YEAR Sandra! Big hugs, Chris xxx
