Hello everyone, hope you are all ok?
Did you have that lightning storm last week – it was amazing. I don’t think I’ve told you yet but Jess has been back home for a while, she was kicked by a horse and has a dislocated elbow. She came home for some TLC from her Mum and Dad and boy is she milking it, she’s running us ragged! Anyway, she and I were hanging out of the bedroom window for over an hour, the sky was just lighting up and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it in my life, certainly not in this Country.
Onto my Papertake Weekly card and as it’s the first one of the month it’s…
… this month’s optional extra is to do Christmas In July and make a card or something for the festive season. I know that many of you are on with your Christmas cards already but if you can’t face the ‘C’ word yet it’s only an option!
I chose to go with Christmas in July and used my favourite James the Bear. This is from the Furry Christmas art pad and is also available as a stamp called James Santa Stop here.
I used the new Sunny Side Up papers, they’re not meant to be Christmassy but I thought the little chicken feet looked like footprints in the snow!!
I embossed the backing paper and then put a layer of tulle between the layers. The little snowflakes are done with a Cheery Lynn die and the sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Christmas Wishes set (very useful set) I finished as always with some stickles, got to have a bit of sparkle!
Hope you like it, I love to get your comments so let me know what you think
I’m off to start my food now, my friend next door is coming round for a meal later with her Husband. They move house on Thursday so they’re surrounded by boxes and it’s a bit of a goodbye (although they’re only moving to the next village!) I always notice things that need cleaning though when anyone is coming so I’ve got poor Keith on his hands and knees doing the kitchen floor lol
Have a lovely week crafters, see you on Sunday for the new Ribbon Girl challenge,
