Hello Everyone I hope you are all tickity boo, but if not , I hope you will soon feel better.
Well what a week for excitement... Trump for President, England beat Scotland at footy, well there's a surprise, they even lost the rugby, an even bigger surprise, lol, but most importantly the John Lewis Christmas Ad is released featuring Buster the Boxer, has anyone seen it, it's absolutely brilliant, Aldi have released their with Kevin the Carrot, he's a wee cutie and M&S has brought out one that bring a wee lump to the throat, which I think is the best one they have done for yonks. Oh yes we're speeding full tilt towards he big day, and talking about Christmas, it's time again for the ladies from the Christmas Card Club to share what they have been making for Sunday. This time the theme has been chosen by our lovely Lorraine and it's Reindeer, always lovely to see them on cards.
Here is what I've come up with;
I've used this beautiful stencil from Imagination Crafts and Sparkle Medium on to black glossy card and then matted on to card I've had for ages from Hunkydory, them gold card from Crafter's Companion, my sentiment is from a wonderful set by John Lockwood.
The image on this card is made with one of Imagination Craft's Art Stamps, and various colours from Memento, inked on with Ink Dusters from Inkylicious. The Embossed background is a folder from Sara Davis, tartan ribbon and a lovely little embellishment form Creative Expressions, then some gems. There is a sentiment there, embossed but not showing up well.
Finally, I'm sure you will recognise this sweet image from LOTV, coloured with Promarkers and Gel Pens by Sakura, lots of glitter, but not showing up. Gold glitter card and papers from an old pad from LOTV, sentiments from Little Claire, a little gold ribbon, a few gems and we're done.
Being part of the lovely group of crafting ladies is such a good way of getting ahead of the game by having your cards ready in time for Christmas, so it anyone would like to join us for next year please let me know and I will put you in touch with Margaret who keeps us all organised.
Just want to thank everyone who visited and left a comment, and this is for Mary from Carolina, a Gritter is a big vehicle that spreads grit when the conditions are icy and snowy, you will have the same thing over in your neck of the woods, probably just by another name.
Take Care everyone and see you soon,
