 Hello everyone,

Christmas card #10..and feeling a little sting in my arms, the boy is home and we went for a walk today with the hot sun, bit of wind, and walked to Mitre 10 and bought shade cloth for the vege garden and the arms and shoulders got a touch of rays..

Anyway, onto todays card..

and a long way from traditional, but very pretty..

I die cut the flowers and leaves..

and a frame and even stamped a sentiment this time with a light grey ink..

I added a pretty corner detail die...

And LOOK!..glue got on there and clever me said you can fix...wrong, I ripped it.

Found these papers in my stash and die cut a little oval that the deer fitted inside..

Aww cute...

started adding flowers after they received a snow detail on their edges..

and placed gems and snowflakes in just the right places to cover up boo boo's..

and in the end, you can't really even tell..
unless you squint a bit and tilt your head..

So there we go, getting near the end..

 I have another huge commission to do, designing a 
Steampunk splash back for a new kitchen, exciting. it gets photographed, 
then pressed onto /into glass or something and then installed.
I'll get photos and show you when it is all done..

Thank you so much for stopping by,,

I'll see you tomorrow..

Can't wait to see the backsplash, if you end up all famous do not give your blog up, I would be devastated...:)) xx
