It is Saturday and boy do we have a busy day ahead of us. First my husband has to go to the University to set up his departments stand for the Open Day. Then we are going to a Craft Fair in Newbury at the racecourse. After that we are having lunch with our daughter and her boyfriend. We will be dashing back to the University to tidy up. In the evening we are going to a joint 50th Birthday party where they will be having an Elvis impersonator. It should be fun. We will need Sunday to get over it all.
Today sees the start of a new challenge on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog - this time the theme is Spots and Stripes.
The stripes are provided by the Brushstrokes A6 stamp by Stampin Up. I looked all through my other stamps and I spotted the spotty Robin and Sentiment by Sam Poole (Creative Expressions) and that is why I made a Christmas card on the hottest day of the year so far.
I coloured the robin with Promakers after stamping him with black archival and heat embossing with a clear powder.
I stamped the sentiment with a red Distress Ink and heat embossed with a clear powder. The Christmas ribbon came from my stash.
This is my very first Christmas card of the year. Though I did post one last week for the release of the Christmas images at Delightful Digi's but I did make this one first.
I hope you have a good day and that the weather is not too hot for you.
