Good Afternoon Ladies, well the last few days have been busy for me and hubby, weve been preparing for our new washing machine, we were under the impression it was going to be delivered today but like all good promises it didnt arrive and now we are having to wait till next Friday, lets hope they dont let us down again as Im extremely dissappointed. We cleared out the back porch on Wednesday, I painted the walls and woodwork and then had some new lino laid ready. We then had to put the old washing machine back which wasnt on the cards but there you are it never turns out like you expect does it. Oh well at least after spending three days outside in the pouring rain, the washing machine at least did work first time after being being reinstalled which is a godsend as I had a pile of washing to do.
Anyway lets get away from that and get one with my card today, its for the Lili of the Valley Challenge "A sketch by Bev" and A Spoonfull of Sugars "Christmas in August", Ive used this cute little dog whos trying to post a card, mind you Ive yet to meet a dog that can do that but there you are perhaps you know better. Anyway Ive coloured it with my promarkers and glittered the snow with some glue and glitter. Then cut it out with my square Nestabilitie die and make a mount out of some red card and a scalloped one, the sentiment is done in the same way but this time Ive used a ribbon tag die and threaded some stary ribbon through the holes.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of red card and one of two papers from the new Dovecraft "Let it Snow" pad, its a mixture of double sided and glitter patterns on card rather than paper. This first one is a red pattern with penquins on and on top of this Ive put a piece of green card and a second pattern which is a cream and red Christmas tree design. Ive wrapped the ribbon with sentiment around this piece and attached it to the back, this was then positioned at the bottom of the first mount. The mounted image was then mounted at the top and some red gem stars stuck either side in the top corners.
This card is being entered in the following Challenges:-
