Heya! How are you? Enjoying your weekend? I hope so! My sweetie and I went to check one apartment on Friday and we really liked it. It's not very big, but it's good for the two of us. Of course there's A LOT of work that needs to be done, but in general the apartment isn't bad. I've even picked a place where my crafty corner will be. He he. We'll call the real estate agent on Monday to place our bid and then we'll go from there. Fingers crossed everything will be ok.
Yesterday I got some more free time and I managed to do some crafting; I made another Christmas card. I hope you are not sick and tired of seeing those yet. ;) I really want to make plenty of them over the year so I'm not going crazy when December comes.
Here's my card ...
This time I use a Magnolia stamp. This one is still one of my favourite Magnolia images. I colored Tilda with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils and then I also added glitter glue on her wings and the white part of her dress. I used some TH spun sugar distress ink on Tilda's cheeks. Around Tilda and on the banner I created above I used some gold star confetti from my stash. On the banner I also added some gems. Those came from my stash as well. The papers are from Folia. The die cut behind the image was made with my new Spellbinders die that I got from my sweet friend (she knows who she is - thank you SO much girl!!! *mwah*) On the bottom of my card I added a mesh that I've had in my stash for a long, long time. Over it I layered a red velvet bling ribbon from Crafty ribbons. Those stars that I added on top of the bling ribbons are from Crafty ribbons too - you can find them here.
I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Natalie and Amy: Things with wings
Time for Magnolia: Wings
Through the craftroom door: Anything goes
Papertake weekly: The sound of music (inspired by one of my favourite songs - Robbie Williams' "Angels"), I also used Kaisercraft's music notes stamp for the embossing
Abc challenge: N for Not just one (make a card with 3 or more embellishments) - my embellishments: ribbon, gems, confetti
Cupcake craft: Lots of layers
Bearly mine: Lucky dip (I chose diecuts, ribbon and gems)
So much from me today. Have a great day!
