Shh! Santa's here!
Let's see the card then .. .. ..
I've been playing around with the fancy labels 8 dies again, I'm determined to get some use out of them seeing as they cost so much! I've created a base card and edged it with red ink, then simply added the layers. I am not happy with the way it cuts, or perhaps it's the paper that stretches on the second pass, see at the bottom there - hopefully one of the non-crafty neighbours wont mind or notice!
Because it's so plain and simple I added the red patterned paper from Marianne Design to the inside as well with a plain 8 label to write the message on. The text is from a MD set of banners and stamps, COL1325, and the felt die cut snowflake is from CR1227.
The Allsorts challenge is for Christmas Cheer, I think this Santa with the little pup fits that theme just right!
That's if from me today folks. I have got my car back, and things were not as bad as expected. The exhaust was an easy weld for my Smart man, but I did have to have a new back tyre as it was almost flat and he was too scared to pump it up as the canvas was showing in places!! How I didn't have a blow out he doesn't know - probably because I'd been driving around with it almost flat! Thankfully it didn't cost an arm and a leg - just the leg! I need to get out to get my happy pills, but as the weather is blowing up a storm here I am thinking one more day of being mildly depressed wont matter .. .. .. .. and I do have a couple more cards to finish off, and there's a carton of fresh chicken soup in the fridge that needs using up as well as some of those part baked rolls to cook, so I reckon there's no need to venture into the storm today!
