I’ve been quiet for a few days as we’ve been painting our house (not fun!) so I’ve haven’t had a chance to head to my craft room and play until today. I’m combining challenges for this card – Colour Throwdown Challenge #173 & Merry Monday Challenge #1 (which I’ve just discovered on Lesley’s blog). I said in a post a couple of weeks ago that I was kinda over Christmas, but after finding Lesley’s challenge I think it’s a great idea to make a weekly Xmas cards and that way when Xmas sneaks up on me this year – I’ll be ready. It also gives me a chance to use my only used once Christmas set – Christmas Lodge. We don’t have this set in Australia yet so I had to buy it off ebay.
Here’s my card:
Here’s a close up of frame that I made using Lots of Tags die in my big shot, my slot punch and threaded ribbon through to hold it down. It also shows how messy I am with dazzling diamonds!
Thanks for stopping by.
