Here I am with a CHRISTMAS CARD. Actually, I've been doing a few.
Trying to get 'em done. Thanks to Margy M and her continual inspiration
over at her blog!!!
This one is for RUBBER DANCE STAMPS challenge:
I've gone with the last mood board from March 2016 ~ the colours
worked well for a festive card!
I'd seen Becca use vellum and heat embossing for her sentiment...
so I've stamped my sentiment using that idea:
It's not that I didn't KNOW that idea. But sometimes you simply forget them!
So I was pleased to be reminded!!!
And this card SPARKLES....doesn't look it above, eh?
Tried to capture it here:
As well as this, I've been taking part in a few Face Book challenges. They seem
to be more popular these days.
SCRAPBOOKING TOP 50 has a special monthly challenge called 'The Block'.
Here's what I've done so far:
The only thing I don't like is that the photos loaded are
so small to view ~ it's hard to check out all those little details. But, I must say, it is a lot easier
than writing blog posts.
Here's the other one I completed:
Maybe Face Book challenges are the future!!!
Won't make me majorly happy ~ but I guess whatever will
be will be:)
Also, I tend to take those photos with my phone ~ much quicker to upload.
And then, the quality is CRAP when you upload them here! Aaaaah well.....
I'm also getting the KITAHOLIC KITS atm. This month's kit
was mostly 'Father's Day' orientated & it included some deer.
Well, for me - MORE CHRISTMAS CARDS is what I thought!!!
The background silver paper is really old - funny how eventually one uses stuff!
So there y'go! I've also been doing some happy mail....& receiving some. It's such FUN!
I've been creating vellum butterflies and hearts, then heat & dry embossing them!
One of the 'happy mail' flair from Funky Flair Studios. LOOOOVE them!
The little word stickers I've created myself:)
I've been enjoying going through my stash & pulling out bits and pieces that I can use!
And I know it's OVER STUFFED [!!!].... but this is my first shaker pocket that I
made for Happy Mail.....that was FUN!!!

Righto..... must go before this becomes a BOOK;)
Take care now & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
