Camden was here long enough to tell us he was buying a horse...I am not thrilled about that, we only just found a home for Aimee's horse, but there you have it. Horse will be staying in Mosgiel, so long may it stay there!
This weekend I had planned to catch up on some scrap booking, but instead i spent the weekend making a Christmas card, crazy I know, but Tickled Pink had a free give-away on their blog last weekend, a cute little elf which I really wanted to have a play with, and they are running a Christmas challenge with an awesome prize up for grabs, so I just had to have a go!
So, without further a-do here is my first completed Christmas card for 2011....
I've added red lace...
... and a bow, complete with a bell, cherrie's and gold beads, which I threaded onto craft wire.
Next I have gold embossed two pieces of torn paper and added Rub-ons, by Fancy Pants.
Behind the paper I attached tulle, then I hand sewed the tiny beads into place.
I used more rub-ons over paper, attached this to card and sprayed with glimmer- mist.
Next I embossed a chip-board shape, and attached it to some Christmas paper, which I swiped with ink.
Then I created my festive bow.
and then I put everything together, and added a few more bits and pieces, including my elf.
Wow! That's a long post!
Now I'm about to clean up, I have created a huge pile of mess while I've been making this card.
Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting to you all.
