Happy Monday? How was your weekend? I hope you did something nice. On Saturday we visited our daughter and son-in-law and had a lovely meal together. We discussed our plans for visiting Disneyland Paris next year to celebrate my big birthday. Then on Sunday we had our friend, who lost his wife last year, over for lunch it was lovely to have a catch up. One of his daughter's and her husband have bought a working dairy farm in France it is all very exciting.
Last week I settled down to make some batch Christmas cards for which I needed to create backgrounds. I used water colour card and a mixture of Pixie Powders and Brushos. When they were dry I thought they were rather too pretty for what I had planned. I ended up making some different cards.
I stamped and heat embossed snowflakes in silver and white onto the background. I chose mats and layers to match the colours in the Pixie Powders and Brushos.
A DL card with die cut snowflakes with and pearl added to each. The die came free with a magazine last year. I used the last of the ribbon on this card.
Another DL card this time just three die cut snowflakes and a different ribbon.
I had one tiny scrap left over so I made this tiny card. The Santa is a Creative Expressions die and the sentiment was cut with some Britannia dies. All the decorated paper has gone now.
Here they are altogether. They do look rather splendid on the side. I still need to make the batch of cards I was planning I will have to make some more backgrounds.
I would like to enter challenge 179 at the Crafting from the Heart Challenge blog and challenge 45 at A Snowflakes Promise Challenge blog.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
