Well, last week I was saying how mild the weather was and this week it’s the exact opposite.
I think winter has finally arrived with a vengeance because it’s now wet, cold and windy and I even heard someone on the radio yesterday saying they were taking their dog for a walk quite close to the area where I live and it was SNOWING. Can do without that I think!
Glad I’m all cozy inside and I’ve had a couple of nice, enjoyable days crafting this week, so I think I’m finally getting into it again after the upsets of past year.
I thought I’d take the photo from the other side of the table this week to give you a better idea of my space and behind where I’m standing is my computer desk and the filing cabernet where I keep all my card stock and some of my stash of patterned papers.
Here’s the aftermath of last nights crafting session……………looks like a bomb has hit AGAIN!
I’m still working on Christmas Card Orders and yesterday I made my very first step card……I’m getting so adventurous Lol!
It was made easier by the scrummy papers that I used……the MME Christmas Glitter Book and I also used my new Snowflake nestie for the first time too.
This one was made using the same MME collection of papers and the gorgeous Papermania stamp ‘A Christmas Carol’, which was a gift from a very dear friend……Thank You Lythan.
It was stamped and embossed in Gold twice and then I’ve coloured the baubles with Promarkers and cut and decoupage them over the top of the first image. The card and the topper have been coloured with Distress inks.
The last card is another step card but is still a work in progress as I still need to add the rest of the Reindeer to the steps.
The stamp I’ve used for this one is Stampendious ‘Prancer’, embossed in Gold and the papers are again from the MME collection.
This mornings task is to get all the inserts done for the cards that I’ve already made so far and then I can see how many more I need to make, so best get on.
Don’t forget to drop by Julia’s Blog and join in the weekly blog hop and thanks for stopping by my craft room.
I didn’t do too well visiting last week but I did get round a few so I’m going to make a big effort to get round a lot more before next Wednesday.
Thanks for stopping by.
