Miraculously, I have managed to complete this week's Christmas Card. I've tried something new again this week - well, new for me :) I've used a scalloped circle of white cardstock and made a little wintry scene beginning by sponging the sky area with grey distress ink, then spritzing with water to get the mottled look to suggest it's snowing. I've watched demonstrations of this technique but it still amazed me that it worked!
I stamped the cottage in another grey ink then gave it and the area in front the fluffy stuff and iridescent glitter treatment to create the snowy scene. The trees are stamped in green, some of them got the ink, dab and stamp treatment to suggest the cottage is in a forest and then the trees were frosted with glitter.

It's not been a productive week for me, my mojo has deserted me for a while, but hopefully next week will be better. I'm attending a workshop on pain management on Monday which should give me pointers on how to deal with the bouts of pain that have been bothering me recently. I'll let you know how I get on and maybe my mojo will make a welcome return : )
Hope you have all had a great week and that your weekend is going to be fabulous.
Bye for now
