Post Early for Christmas!

Well lookie here, 2 cards for one challenge - there's a first for me!  I am just loving the summer holidays, even though I'm not going to get away this year (violins out!!).  Any day now I am going to start doing what I'm meant to be doing - having a clearout and makeover and NOT sit with paper, glue and scissors!!  I have been feeling a little Christmassy this last few days though.  It always happens to me during the summer holidays, I get the urge to start Christmas Crafting.  So I've chosen Midweek Magnolias Easel Card theme again to get me in the mood.  I saw a card in cyberland that had used some of a Nitwitville collection and immediately this idea sprang to mind
The card in my head was just chocca with embellishments though, but once I'd begun assembling, I found it didn't really need anything more than the gorgeous pieces that came with the digi kit!  And Edwin sporting his parcel was just the most perfect thing to take to my Post Office!
You can't really tell from my photography, but the ground that Edwin is walking on is actually a photograph of real footprints in the snow.  I used one that I'd taken along the footpath that runs alongside my house and cropped it down to size.  The sign above the door did say Nitwitville Post Office and I wasn't too keen on that, so I made my own.  Unfortunately, the glossy accents I used hadn't quite set when I began pressing out the seams and posing it, hence the bleurgh! in the middle of the word! T'uh!!!

That's me done for today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! xx

  3. Oh wow wow WOW Anne, this is one of the most stunning cards I've ever seen!!! And being a blogger, I see LOTS of cards. This is just absolutely gorgeous!!!!

    Thank you so much for all your sweet words about the wedding stuff for my daughter! It was a labor of love. And I'm so happy with the way the tiles turned out. It's not a hard thing to do...just a matter of taking your time and going slowly. I'm sure if you could make a card as incredible as the one you made, vinyl on your Silhouette will be a piece of cake for you!!
