Vintage Christmas

Good Evening Crafty Friends and Followers

Welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy your visits and enjoy your time visiting my blog.

Today another cold day here in Warrington, it has been raining for most of the day.  I have had a busy day today getting the shortfall in Christmas cards made!  I am so going to playing in my craft room for me tomorrow.  I am all Christmas crafting out now.  Will start again in January for next years cards.

I hope you have all had a good crafty day.  Are you all ready for Christmas now?  I am all presents bought I have just got to wrap them up now and then play Santa delivering them all!  That is the fun part.

Today's card I made a few days ago for a couple of the challenge blogs. 


8 x 8 Card base which is gold pearlescent
Green mirri card and patterned paper from Kraftyhands Vintage Christmas  CD which I have wrapped ribbon with stitching on around.  I then took a Copic's pen and added faux stitching around and distressed the edges with my scissors.
The Topper has been matted onto Green mirri card then the layers added.
To finish off I have added holly from my stash and made a bow with some wired Christmas ribbon and added 3 stick pins.


Thank you for stopping by Today
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Day
Hugs

Lovely card, Linda, so peaceful and vintage in style. Just one thing, though, if I follow the link from your message, it takes me to Google+ and I cannot leave a message there. I have had to do a Google search for your blog - you are not the only one I have this problem with. Thank you for your visit and I quite understand your lack of time to do that. I hope you have all your cards done now and are completely ready for the great day. xx Maggie
