Wow, can you believe we are half way through December? I still feel like I missed November somewhere .... Of course the BIG event is next weekend - try not to panic anyone!!
Just thought I'd share the Christmas card I made for my hubby (at least I have that done!)
This stamp was in a job lot from ebay, cost quite a bit in postage and there was only one other nice stamp in there but I had to have this one - LOL!!
I'm prowling around ebay quite often now looking for PB stamps as there don't seem to be many UK stockists anymore :-(
If anyone can recommend any please shout.
Back to the card, this stamp is called 'That Xmas Feeling', coloured with promarkers. I've combined it with an assortment of papers from my scraps folders along with a brand new piece of First Edition green 'Fairisle' paper which reminded me of knitting. I still struggle to start a new pad of paper, the stroking and admiring period can last ages before the scissors arrive!
I kept the embellishment fairly simple as hubby doesn't do fussy!
As it's Christmas, I glittered his hat ... me ... his pom pom .... the desk and floor!
Have a great day whatever you're doing and thanks for visiting!
Hope everyone is OK and the Christmas preparations are well under control ... hmm I think I need to work on that!
Over at Sparkles Monthly we are taking a break from Christmas crafting, instead our new challenge theme is
because we are celebrating our 7th birthday this month!!
Here's my card using another PB stamp from Ebay called, very appropriately, 'Let's Celebrate'. I've used a selection of peach and pink coloured scraps from my box and cut a glittery Happy Birthday using an Xcut die.
Love these cute mice and I couldn't resist adding a touch of stickles to their cake!
Today I've been sorting out a few things ready for Christmas, think I'm making progress although I have to confess to putting off writing cards again! Funny really, I love making cards but hate writing them!!
Maybe tomorrow ....
Anyways, I popped on to share this super cute PB mouse. I love this stamp, that pose and the happy dance always makes me smile - do you think he has been watching Strictly?
Here's the complete card
Stamp: Penny Black - Let it Snow, coloured with promarkers,
