Hi everyone

I have not posted as promised as I have just lost a dear dear friend after a short illness, such a shock to us all and I am sure you will apreciate I just don't feel like crafting. Time will heal and after the funeral next week perhaps I can get back to normality.

Bye for now

Reindeer All in A Row

I know it has been ages since my last proper post - sorry!! I could tell you my life history as events have happened over the past few months - but I won't - just to say Life has been Topsy Turvy and recently my Mom ( who is 88 in a few weeks; but don't tell anyone she'll kill me!!) has been unwell so I have been living between 2 houses with no time to craft and play with my new Stampin' Up goodies from the new catalogue!!
Mom's on the mend (hopefully) so today I have been playing;
Here is a Christmas card using colours from the Stamp with Us challenge. My Mojo wasn't flowing so the card came about by accident really, while stamping out the colours used in the challenge with the first stamp to hand, which happened to be the reindeer from the stamp set Winter Post (I love this set) I noticed they looked really cute all in a row. So I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for snow and on their antlers also within the dots of the New Eyelet Border Punch - just couldn't stop playing with the glitter but I am pleased with the way my card has turned out - you have to have glitter at Christmas - don't you?
Hope you like my creation too.

I will be back with some more creations using the Fab new products from Stampin' Up! very soon :-()

Card: Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy, Ballet Blue, Whisper White
