Good morning to you all! Hope you had a lovely weekend - don't they just fly by! We went for a lovely walk on Friday afternoon along the seashore, splashing in the sea as we walked along! Invited my sister around for a BBQ on Saturday but first we all went down to the beach with her dogs and had a walk again. Yesterday was cooler so managed to get some crafting done!
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme this fortnight is Christmas in July. Now I am a last minute panic kind of girl where Christmas cards are concerned so it does feel a bit weird for me to be doing so many festive cards and projects this month! Here is my card:
Slightly wishy washy picture I think! I decided to go for a vintage type look not sure if I succeeded or not! The picture is on my file in my pc and it is before I started putting where I got them from so I really apologise for not knowing - I do like to give credit. I have used Spellbinders die for the mat and the snowflake. The card was cut using a Go Create XXL die. The paper is Pion - I finally used a piece of it (I have had it ages and never could bring myself to cut into them). I used two rubber stamps and gold embossing powder - the music sheet is a LOTV acrylic stamp unfortunately it is starting to perish and is in about three or four pieces but I managed to use it! The sentiment is Tickled Pink stamps. Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, another thing I have difficulty using - far too pretty to cut!! I have used Frantage around the card and on the snowflake and all over my craft room too - it sure blows all over the place even heating it from below.
