Did I mention that I have fallen behind on visiting and commenting too? I cannot apologise enough to all who have actually made the effort and time to visit me. I hang my head in shame.
When (If?) we put our tree up tomorrow, I might just climb up and hide in it, together with the Partridge. Call me when Christmas is over, will ya! In the meantime, I'll leave you with this card, which had me humming a certain Christmas carol all day long. (It's maddening when a ditty makes your head its new home...and refuses to leave!)
|This is a large card: 6" x 4.5". Had to be in order to accomodate the stamped image. No patterned papers on this one, just black, green and tan (read crumb cake) CS.|
|To finish, I tied some red raffia into a bow and did some stitching to mimic a frame border. Why?Because TMS #175 made me do it.|
|On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Chocolate Baroque's "Warm Christmas Greetings" set in Memento Tuxedo Black.|
Inspiration for this card came from Tuesday Morning Sketches #175; Dillybean Challenge "Traditional Christmas Colours"; Freshly Brewed Designs #125 "Christmas"; Colour Throwdown #221; Charizma Cards #48 "Christmas" ; PaperPretties Wednesday Challenge #235 "Christmas Inspired" and Fairytale Challenge #53 "O Tannenbaum".
And, as always, you'll find me playing in a fun little sand-box called MIM #119. Don't forget to check it out!
It's Friday, no reason to remain frazzled (or so I tell myself). Enjoy your weekend, my friends! Thanks for taking a mo to visit me and we'll catch up in a couple of days....if not sooner. In the meantime, I am committed to doing some visiting later today....so don't forget me just yet! :-) Toodle-loo!
