I hope this finds you well and ready to enjoy the weekend.
I'm feeling a lot better today and much of the improvement has got to be put down to the many get well wishes you have all sent me ... thank you :)
Still not been doing much on the crafting front so here's another I made earlier.
Possibly the last Christmas card for now! Well, until next week, anyway :)
The pretty paper was in a RAK from a friend, thank you Dawn, the die-cut bauble came in a candy win last year, and all the other materials and embellishments were from my stash.
Instead of matting the paper on to red card, I've edged it with a red ProMarker pen. Because of the Royal Mail's sizing policies and swinging postal charges, I'm trying to make cards that can pass through the dreaded guide ... not an easy task!!!
The bauble was inked in red, then dried before stamping with VersaMark and my favourite Christmas foliage stamp and brushed with gold mica powder. It doesn't show well in the photographs ... not even in this close-up :( The word 'Noel' was stamped over the top and heat embossed with gold powder. Almost hidden by the red ribbon bow is the gold embossed top of the bauble. The sprig of holly was stamped, coloured with Promarkers, cut out and adhered to the bauble before adding the glitter glue.
Not a Santa in sight - because he has gone into hiding - making it perfect for Hazel's challenge #106 over on CHNC.
Now that I'm feeling more myself again, I'm hoping to get back into the craft room and do a bit of creating - after I've cleared the clutter that has accumulated during my absence ... can anyone tell me how that happens!!!
And, if the weather is good, I'm planning to get out for a breath of fresh air this weekend. After a week or so of being confined to indoors, I need a dose of vitamin D, the one we get from exposure to daylight.
Take care all. I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
