 Hello everyone,

Well, all my overseas Christmas cards have been stamped or printed, hand coloured, inserts in, tucked into envelopes, and awaiting stamps. I'm doing much better this year although every year I send early....just in case.

So here we are with Christmas card # 16 a really easy peasy one, just a bit of die cutting, shading, cutting felt and not much more..

This is the die set, one cute deer with his bunny friend and a bird..

After die cutting a bit of shading was in order..
and some teeny tiny eyes [ gems]

All shaded up, eyes in place, never lost any today..

time for some freehand cutting of felt, soft, thin, fluffy felt.

Stuck that down with double side tape and added some splatters..

Bambi in place with the bunny on his back and the birdy on the bunny's head.

Decided to have a play with silver embossing powder, I bought this stuff when time began and used it maybe twice, so time to get is aired and see what happens.

I stamped and embossed with the silver onto tiny tags..
and added some snowflakes onto the background...

and tied them onto the branch with a few choice words as all my fingers turned in thumbs!!

Nice and flat.

and here it is..

What cute little critters..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
