Sunday morning post

Morning all,

I know you don't expect a post from me on a Sunday these days but, the weather has been such that the only thing for it has been to stay in and craft - so I have!!!!

I do believe we've escaped FAIRLY mildly ... we HAD been expecting blizzard conditions and up to 30cm of snow and, whilst we've got more than that depth in drifts, elsewhere there's little to show





At least the birds can see the food we've been putting out!
So, here's some of the crafting keeping me from going stir crazy!

My card
And a closer view of my image
   
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

  • White 5" x 7", 300gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to fit
  • One piece of red card cut to mat
  • MFT image and Inkadinkado sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour the image
  • Tsukineko gelly roll glitter pens in black and gold
  • Stardust stickles used to accentuate image and sentiment

This is such a cute and fun image Kathy and love your sentiment too, and has made a super card. We had maybe a little more snow than you and haven't been able to get out, but today it is thawing quite quickly and is a good deal warmer so back to normal tomorrow I hope. x

Oh that is a cute Elf card.

You had a lot more snow than I did. Used to love the stuff, but each year I like it less and less!

I do join you in wishing your friend Jan a Happy Birthday.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
