Blimey, it feels like ages since I have posted anything ..... did you all have a good Christmas then? I hope none of my UK blogging friends have been affected too badly by the horrible storms we have had over the past ten days. We are fine here, we are high and on sandy soil so any rain simply drains away, but I know there are many who have not been so fortunate.
We had a wonderfully relaxed Christmas Day, and a fun day with my parents on Boxing Day - mum might be in her late 70s now but she can still do a really mean roast dinner! And I was lucky enough to receive lots of lovely crafty goodies in my stocking, including the new LOTV baby stamps (some of those to come in the not too distant future) and a Xyron Creative Station! Thank you Mr Toad. And thanks to some special bloggy pals who also sent crafty gifts which have been very much appreciated.
And because I must have been such a good girl in 2013 (!), I have had several thank you cards to make. I had not been near the craft room for several days so it was bliss to get stuck in for a while this afternoon. Here are a couple of simple cards that I made before I lost daylight.
Unlike me to do elegant!
I used a Hero Arts sentiment for the main focus on a
Nestabilities Gromit Tag. The centre of the tag I inked with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink
Then I embossed the frame through my Grand Calibur using an ornate Nestabilities die
and finished off with three simple retro flowers with Card Candy centres
And these cheeky little chaps are Tiddly Inks birds
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
I am pretty sure that the picket fence die is MFT Die-namics but I have lost the packet
Papers are Nitwits/LOTV Perfect Pair
And a Personal Impressions sentiment stamped on the squint
I'm not back to work until 2nd January so I still have three days to play, which I intend to do!
Hugs to all
