Hello there blog friends and followers - I hope you are all enjoying your day, it's overcast here so I don't feel guilty that I am not gardening or anything else strenuous!!! I could be ironing I suppose - then again - nah still too strenuous!
I made these two cards just before I became a blogger. I was going to post them later on but I feel they are appropriate for Sandra's August Rudolph Day Challenge at http://stampingforpleasure.blogspot.co.uk/ .
This card is called Too Many Sherries - my hubby says it is really me 'n' him after we have had a sherry whilst cooking Christmas dinner!! I haven't used too many 'add-ons' because of the really glittery background card - it stands out on its own. I do like the ribbon through the red mirri because it just matches the colours of the Christmas trees!
This is my second entry and is entitled "Santa's On His Way" - I just love this stamp because of the expression on Rudolph's face - bless! The mirri card has little holly leaves on it - not thumb prints! I don't use much mirri at all, but I do like it at Christmas. The ink was dragged in towards the picture - something I like to do sometimes instead of the normal circular motions with Cut 'n' Dry foam. This will be going to my little neighbours next door!
Two apologies to make - the first is that I can't tell you which stamps they are at the moment, simply because I need hubby to move 8 deep plastic boxes of card to enable me to get into my stamp cabinet. If anyone does want to know - just say so in your comment and I will be able to find out next week. The second apology is the quality of the pics - hubby wasn't around to do them for me, so I did them myself - methinks we should stick to what we are good at lol!!! It was quite dark and I am useless with cameras.
Anyway thank you for stopping by and having a peep at my blog - I hope you like my cards. Any comments are gratefully received.
Have a happy afternoon.
Hugs to you all
