No pink, no glitter.... can you believe it??

Morning Peeps

Happy Sunday to you all....

Yes, yes, yes, I can manage a whole card without pink and without glitter....and here's the proof!!  I saw something similar to this on Pinterest.... so thought I'd give such a simple card a go... and here is my take on it!

Very, very easy...  the circle is embossed with a circular nestie... using the embossing mat rather than cutting through...  I punched out some holly leaves which I used glossy accents on to make them shine...  I stuck on some red pearls for berries...  I used a Pink Petticoat Christmas sentiment... which I punched out with my favourite Stampin Up word window punch...  then I embossed some lines across the base of the card with an embossing tool.

And there you have it....  I think I can cope with making quite a few of these... they do the heart good after spending a couple of hours yesterday colouring a snowman and his mates..  I never knew snowmen were so damn difficult to colour.... anyway, you'll see the above mentioned card this week sometime... as yet it's only a coloured image with no card behind it!

Whatever you're up to today - enjoy..... I think eldest daughter and I are off to Costco....  not been there before so better keep a tight rein on my purse!  Youngest daughter btw is still travelling the world... she's in Dubai now after being a bridesmaid in India to her friend....(sari and all!), then spending a few days in and around India... looking at the Taj Mahal amongst other things...  and now Dubai for 5 days before jetting off back home to Bermuda... she's certainly a globe trotter!

Big hugs to all
