Merry Christmas

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Friday everyone I hope you have all had a fabulous day.  Woohoo the weekend starts now as it is after 6.00 pm.  What are you all up to this weekend.  Apart from the usual housework, washing and ironing I will be playing with my Gelli plate which arrived today as well as some new masks.

I have had such a stressful week that I plan to chill in front of the telly tonight and I might even have a drink or two :)  Welcome to my new followers too, lovely to have you visit and I hope you enjoy your visits.

Anyway less babbling from me here is my card for tonight, LOL yes I know it is a Christmas card but if you are anything like me I have loads to send out each year so I make them all year round so as I don't get stressed out at the end of the year.


1. 8 x 8 square gold pearlescent card which I have made into an easel card.
2. I have stamped the Ickle Christmas Tree from Indigoblu with my Glue Pad and used gold metal magic embossing powder on black pearlescent card and layered onto the base of the card, I wrapped gold organza ribbon around the centre of the card and added a bow to act as a stopper.
3. The easel part of the card is cream pearlescent card and black pearlescent card.  I have stamped IndigoBlu Bauble Flourish and Wishing you a Merry Christmas stamps with my Glue Pad and then embossed with gold metal magic embossing powder.

There you have it a Christmas Card that doesn't need any other embellishments as I think the stamped images "speak for themselves"

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
