Hope all is well with you wherever you are ... it's nearly Friday and that's where the weekend starts and that can't be bad :)
The card I have for you today was actually made some time ago, I just hadn't gotten around to posting it. And that is just fine because I think it fits in well with Hazel's CHNC challenge this week to 'cut it out'.
The papers are snippets of Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium. The top one has been stamped using Penny Black's Winter Bough stamp and Tim Holtz Festive Berries distress ink. And to finish it off, a length of red ribbon decorated with a few more Anita's not so teeny gems.
Winter Bough is stamped inside and on the back ... can you tell I love that stamp :)
I'm submitting this card to the following:
CHNC 142. Of course ... I've 'cut it out' as required :)
CHNC Challenge Extra for September - where, as always, the challenge is for anything as long as it's Christmas.
Pixie's Crafty Snippet Playground Week 90 - the Graphic 45 paper and the red mirror matting are the snippets.
The insurance assessor popped along this morning, to look at the damage caused by the fire for himself. He was most sympathetic and hoped that the person responsible will be caught. Somehow, I rather think that is not going to happen any day soon.
Packing is going full steam ahead. Two more boxes filled today ... mostly books and a few personal items. I've learnt from experience to pack only one layer of books in a box and top up with lightweight items, otherwise the boxes become too heavy and there's a danger the bottom will come apart ... it doesn't bear thinking about.
Oh, and talking of experience in the moving department, chatting to my daughter last night, I totted it up and I have moved 31 times in my 65 years. Most of the moves were due to army postings ... my father was in the army, then I was in the army and, of course, my first husband was also in the army ... the experience sure gave me itchy feet :) However, this is definitely the last time ... no more ... not ever again! Somehow the excitement seems to have gone out of it for me :))
I'm hoping to sneak a bit of time in the craft room this evening, for a bit of rest and recuperation. Perhaps I'll do some scrapping ... it's a wee while since I did any.
I hope you all have an enjoyable evening planned too.
