A little innocence...
Hi Blogging Friends..
Hope you're all well and getting near the end of your Christmas 'to do' list. Why do we leave things till the last minute and get so stressed?? LOL! We KNOW for twelve months prior that it's going to happen... yet year after year we're in the same mad rush the week before! I don't think I've heard anyone this year say that everything is all done and they're twiddling their thumbs waiting!!
Today I'm sharing a card with you that (believe it or not) has no pink anywhere.... but it really was a joy to make. It's using one of my favourite (at the moment) range of stamps - Pure Innocence by MFT and it's called Presents for You. The sentiment is also from the same set.
I coloured her with a mix of Copics and Promarkers and the DP I've used is a double sided Kaisercraft one which appears now to have been discontinued.... such a shame as it's a nice bright Christmas paper. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the red Bazzill. Some glitter on her hat and gifts and it was finished. Hope you like!!
I treated us to some new Christmas lights for the outside of the house at the weekend... and this morning we fastened them up... it's a tricky operation with Barry in the garden holding the lights up through the window to me with a washing line prop as I'm hanging out of the window (imagine the picture).... ANYWAY.... I had them all fastened up... with various pieces of string through each of the windows holding them in place... then closed the window with the wire coming through to the plug... and chopped one of the wires right through!! So the lights only worked for about 10 seconds... and they were expensive too!! Seems I put the wire too near the metal part of the hinge... D'oh..... Ah well, apparently they can be mended so all it not lost!!
Did you all watch Last Tango in Halifax? Wasn't it good?!!
Hopefully I'll be back before the big man arrives...
Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
