Instead of a card ……..

Hi everyone,

Boy am I behind this week, I’m having a few problems with my laptop, I think the poor thing is on it’s last legs.  Oh no!!  Guess what I’ll be asking Santa for ………

Anyway, my fabulous tech support (aka the other half!)  has managed to get me up and running again, how long for, who knows.  So on that note I’m going to keep this short and sweet.

This week I’ve been busy making Christmas cards (about time I say!!).  They’re nearly all done, just need to write them and get them in the post now.

I also made this hanging decoration too, just as a little something different.

I made the rosettes from some Christmas papers from my stash and used the Retro Christmas rubber stamp set for the Santa and the Holly.  I kept the whole thing quite simple, just stamped the images and cut them out.  Added a bit of colour to Santa using Copic pens, sprinkled him with a touch of fine glitter and added a pompom onto his hat.

The ‘Merry Christmas’ is from the Here Comes Santa stamp set.  I’ve used the Chariot of Fire flake then cut it out and made a banner.

The small rosette on the bottom has been decorated with the lovely flourish from the Wreathed in Smiles set, again done with the flake.

I’ve used some gold thread to join the rosettes together and skooshed with a glitter spray (technical term there) to give the whole thing some sparkle.

I’ve left space on the back to write a festive greeting (this is actually going off to Indigo Blu HQ.  Well they said they wanted something to put up in the office).  I think it makes a nice change to a Christmas card.

Congratulations! to our winner of the 1st Christmas Giveaway.  Well done Jackie, enjoy your new Indigo Blu stamp.

Don’t forget there’s a brand new Giveaway running all this week.  Enter your name onto the linky and you could be in with a chance of winning the fabulous Bare Forest rubber stamp.  Good luck!

Enjoy the rest of your week.  I’m off now to finish my Christmas cards.
