David, Joseph and I will be partaking in a New Year's Eve Party however, and I must say I am looking forward to it very much. We are going around to one of Joseph's parents houses, and there is sure to be lots of frivolity and joviality to say the least! When I am feeling up to it (the after effects of a couple of glasses of plonk can have repercussions for days, now I'm old!) I will post the what promises to be the most hilarious photographs!
I thought I'd better share with you my final (I think) offering of Christmas card Cheer for this year. It seems wrong to show them next year, for tomorrow, all the Christmas decorations will be removed in my quest for the turning of a new leaf.This is Sheila's (my bestest friend ever)Christmas card for this year. I made this card with the gorgeous BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper pack, and then of course that forever handy core'dinations cardstock, available in every colour you can imagine! The stamp (bought last year from Little Claire's, and only used for the fist time here - why do we do it!) is coloured with Promarkers. I also added shimmer dots to the tree and irridescent glitter glue to the snow covered ground.
Now, I'd better explain the greeting "Why would an Elephant Hold a Star? (printed on my computer). I chose the image on purpose, having an animal doing something it might not normally do, as Sheila has this thing about that. Whenever we go to a Crafy show, I usually look at the Penny Black stamps, and Sheila always says - "Now, whenever would you see a mouse having a bath in a cat bowl" or " whenever would you see a hedgehog dressed as a ballerina" She just doesn't get it. So inside the card, the greeting continues...When it's Christmas of course, DUH! ha ha ha!
I stamped the tag in Colourbox merlot ink (I think my favourite colour) and embellished it with a Papermania white gel pen and crystal Sakura pen. I covered the base card with Papermania Bare Basics kraft paper and stamped the snowflake background with Colourbox frost white ink. The patterned paper is BasicGrey (either Wassail or Figgy Pudding - can't remember which now). I created the greeting on my computer and printed onto white patterned paper from the same pack. Lovely Jubbly!
