Christmas With a Friend

Oh my! Here I am again , another posting . Just got to  love it . There is something about creating a mini work of art such as a hand made card  that is so good for ones health and well being . If you are not too hard on  yourself  , if you can understand that sometimes your project will not turn out exactly as you had visualized and ..... if you can accept that there are no  mistakes  only opportunities  for embellishing  , then you are well on your way to really enjoying your paper craft .

Hi there visitors to my room . Thank you for calling in .Please do let me know that you have been  here so that I can visit you too .As you have probably gathered  by now I do love to chat .......

Tonight I share some images from a set which I used the other day

This time I did not use the die set that matched the stamp set but decided to cut out by hand ..



The new stamp set is Snow Place , SU and I have used  the snow man , the penguin  , the hat and tie along with the sentiment that I divided into two parts The embossed back ground was given to me by Jane . I added a little Wink of Stella to the hat and tie . The snowman is added with foam dots. I stamped the penguin twice and 3D him adhering to front with double layered  foam dots to make him look closer than the snowman .
Thick white card base from SU . Real Red card mat from SU .

                                                                     INSIDE

Here I have used a sentiment from the SU set , Christmas Messages  surrounded by snowflakes from the Snow Place set .



Christmas is a tonic for our souls. It moves us to think of others rather than of ourselves. It directs our thoughts to giving.

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
