Merry Christmas

Back from our last visit to the Lakes this year and time to crack on with Christmas cards!

Poinsettia and branch stamps are by Chloe, sentiment stamp is by Sweet Dixie. I've also used a set of SU snowflake stamps with clear embossing powder on the red background.

The branches have been stamped on heat-resistant acetate and the gold spirals were made from off-cuts of gold card wrapped around the handle of an embossing tool.

I mixed some fine gold glitter in with normal gold embossing powder to give it a little sparkle.

This is what I get up to in the Lakes, although obviously that's not me, it's my husband.

Last week we climbed Blencathra which is a prominent fell just outside of Keswick, not much of a view due to mist and cloud but it was a good day's walking. At 2848 ft it's officially a mountain and one of three we climbed that day.

Not a card...

Okay so it's nothing at all to do with card making but I couldn't resist...this little chap should be coming to live with us in just over a month's time.

He's an apricot Cockapoo and his name is Fletcher.
I know I'm going to have my hands full, I need to puppy-proof my craft room and definitely need to crack on with my Christmas projects for the club before he arrives.
