Phew, it's been a busy ol' week, very tense and quite emotional at times, and I thank God that I am so blessed to have my three wonderful guys to come home to at the end of the day! But it's another week gone now and another one closer to Christmas OMG, how close?? Just about 33 days, I believe, and I received my first Christmas card on Thursday! But you're going to have to wait a couple more weeks before I can show it off because it was from Vicki, one of the lovely guests we have helping us over at Winter Wonderland. The theme over there this week is to make something without using any Christmas images or Christmas dbg papers!! That was a challenge, but one I thoroughly enjoyed, and these are what I came up with:
Both of these were so incredibly simple. The wreath was made by cutting out a chipboard circle and then cutting out an inner ring then sticking the leaves on. It's so basic and simple that I shan't embarrass myself or insult you by giving a step-by-step guide! The second card was simply a computer generated text with a swirly stamp in the corner, a touch of bling and a splodge of glitter, Hey Presto, CAS!!!
Next up is this week's Promarkers challenge. I haven't managed to play for weeks due to other stuff taking over my life, but I was determined to play this week and Oh my, what a challenge - the colours were Marsh Green and Burnt Umber. Well, they're not top of my colour combo fav's but I gave it a shot, and Hey, isn't that what a challenge is all about?
And finally for now it was my lovely friend Penny's birthday this week so I made her this Easel card. I bought the stamp a loooooong time ago when Penny first moved to the coast and never got round to using it, but I finally managed to do something with it this week and here's the result. I figured that as it was such a busy image and the bg paper is a bit, well, stripey, I didn't need to put a lot of 'extras' on it and decided to keep it 'un-fussy'!
Well that's my lot for now. I hope everyone is keeping safe and warm and these awful storms aren't giving you too much bother. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you leave with a smile on your face and maybe a little inspired! :o) xx
