A family card from Times Gone By

Hi folks! Have been meaning to blog for ages...... but I've been soooo busy, please excuse me. Missed you all lots. Hoping to catch up soon. Today I am sharing a card I made using the Glynn Williams 'Times gone by' cdrom. When using a cdrom I always head straight to the decoupage section as I love the dimension they create once the cards are made up.
I printed out the backing paper from the cd. I felt it was a little too strong so I decided to add a sheet of vellum on top. To add a some interest I used my embossing board to score some lines on the bottom half. I thought it gave the impression of wallpaper and so I adhered some ribbon across the middle to look like a dado rail.
Here is a peak at the inside. Just a little matting and layering (using my Nestabilities) a ribbon bow and the sentiment printed from the cd.
Before the school run this morning I took a moment to write down in my diary 'what's happening' in December in the Dry household.....and it's crazy! Nativity shows, carolling with the band (and other band engagements), Christmas fairs, puppet shows (my eldest is in the puppet group at church) Panto show (twins drama club) .... and that's just off the top of my head! I may not be around too much, but I'll try. I really want to share my samples for the next Joanna Sheen show, which is on this Sunday at 11am Create and Craft (Sky671) as it's the launch of my stamp designs as well as the beautiful cdrom by Josephine Wall. I hope you will be able to catch some of the show.
Must dash... school run beckons.
Ciao for now!
