Busy... busy... busy........... and it's COLD outside!



Morning all from a very cold Yorkshire!

Well here's my latest card - doing loads of these as they're for us to send ourselves! Image is from Digi Stamp Boutique and is called Christmas Doodles - really nice for when you want a small image with little shading...! I've used my nestibilities for the scalloped edge, then mounted onto red card stock.... Then I used my brand new Sizzix TimHoltz Embossing folder...... which is YUMMY as the embossing is soooooo deep! I've mounted THAT onto a further white matt, then it all goes onto plain white cardstock! I like the effect, but would love to know what you think! Of course, Rudolph wouldn't be Rudolph without his red nose - so I used my glitter accents to make it shiney and then added some nice glitter onto his bell and collar! I LOVE my glitter - what would a world be without it?
Anyway.... I haven't been over the doorstep much this week - only yesterday - so getting a tad fed up of this 'seasonal' weather! And as my OH is working all weekend - I guess I won't be going anywhere till next week either! Furthest I get is the end of our drive - with the snow shovel of course! hehe
I've put on a little photo of what we're facing!! When i opened the curtains this morning, these were hanging outside the bay window! So, as I don't want to turn to ice......I'll happily stay in!
Bye for now - keep warm!
