A Cosy Christmas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Whew where did the weekend go?  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, Rick and I did, we went to Kath and Steve's for a meal on Saturday night.  Yesterday I spent most the day chilling and colouring and wrapping all the Christmas presents, which as you all know is not one of my favourite things in the world to do.  Another job done for this year.

Today I am showing you Kath's card which I made her for Christmas, I wanted to give it to her before I showed it on my blog and have her blessings to show you all.


Recipe

1. 6 x 6 square Kraft card which I have matted and layered cream card which I have distressed the edges with Vintage Photo and wrapped lace around.
2. The Image is one of Sheena Douglass' A little Bit Festive set  which I have stamped with Adirondak and embossed with embossing powder and coloured with a mixture of Copics and Distress Ink.  I have used Wink of Stella glitter pen on the roof, bushes and ground.
3. The sentiment has been stamped with Adirondak Chocolate and embossed with clear embossing powder, the distressed around the edges with scissors and matted and layered onto the lace.
4. To finish off I added a couple of pine cones from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx

This is so gorgeous Linda. I would never have thought of doing this colour for a Xmas card. I have a stamp which is labelled as Ann Hathaways cottage. Would you mind if I used your idea? Xxx
