The papers and most of the embellishments used are from Papermania's Vintage Notes collection, the base is pale grey Bazzill Basics cardstock ... other materials were shopped from my stash.
The base is tent shaped, made by simply cutting an A4 sheet of card vertically and folding in half. The strips of paper were trimmed into various lengths and given fish tails to create the banners, and edged with Shabby Shutters distress ink. The topper was created using small labels dies from Spellbinders. The die-cut trim, ribbon and gems were from stash.
It's last minute, but I'll still be skipping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 101 with this snippet card.
Above I mentioned that even now there is still some stuff packed away. Part of the problem is lack of storage space but the EM is, as I write, coming to the rescue ... he's putting up a ton of shelves to accommodate my huge collection of books, albums and folders. This will help immensely and he's my hero :)
Box of decorations update ... it's been found. We left it in the attic of our old house ... and that despite the fact that we were sure we had emptied everything out of there! So Christmas will come to the new Casa Worthington after all :))
Follow-up from yesterday's gales ... some fencing blew down, wheelie (garbage) bins were overturned and the contents were redistributed around the garden, some very big plant pots were blown over too. But we have been so lucky and the aftermath is nowhere near as bad as many folk have suffered in the east of the country, and the north of Wales ... my heart goes out to everyone who has been flooded out.
To close, I'd just like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has very kindly sent us 'new home' cards and the Christmas cards that are already popping through our letterbox. They have cheered us up during the weeks of ups and downs we've been going through.
Time for a break before tackling the next item on that to-do list :)
Take care everyone and happy crafting,
