Hello and thank you for visiting me! It's not a card from me today - its advent calendars I made for my Granddaughters Freya and Millie. Well, I said made I actually decorated the 25 drawer wooden units that I bought quite cheaply from The Works.

Hello and thank you so much for visiting me! I have a Christmas card today and it is the first one I have made this year. The time has gone by so quickly I can hardly believe its December next month.
I used a clear stamp set called O Christmas Tree by Creative Expressions. I bought it in an online sale very cheaply recently and I love it! It cried out for snippets of left over patterned paper and fussy cutting. I stamped the trees and pots in Nocturne Versafine Clair on leftover pieces of patterned paper - the starry paper is Lily of the Valley - I treasure my pads of their paper and keep every snippet as they only do digital paper now. The pots I am not sure which paper pad the snippets are from. The tree stumps are stamped on snippets of white card and stamped with Distress Oxide - I think I used Frayed Burlap. When they were all stamped, I fussy cut them out and glued them onto a white panel then used my Misti to stamp the stars and sentiment in the correct places, I used Versafine Clair Glamorous. Everything is from the same stamp set. Then I got my quickie glue pen and glitter and added oodles of sparkle to the whole card - well it is a Christmas card! The panel was then added to a card base. I was going to make a coloured card base but changed my mind and went with white.

Hello and thank you for visiting me! A bright and cheerful card today.
The flower and butterfly stamps are from Sentimentally Yours and were stamped in black Versafine Clair and embossed with clear powder. The butterfly is stamped on a snippet of card as well as the panel then glued on top of the stamped image. The colouring is done with Sentimentally Yours Watercolour brush pens and the die which looks like wood along with the 'Hi', are from a set by Waffle Flower called Message Boards. They were cut from snippets of card. I added lots of stickles for sparkle.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Pixies's Snippets playground - Use Snippets.
Darnell's NBUS Challenge - Never Before Used Schtuff - Mine are the flower, butterfly and Message Board die set.
The Flower Challenge - Circle/Circles - There are circles in my flowers.
We Love Chocolate Baroque - Anything Goes.
Make my Monday Challenge - Orange as dominant colour.
Well, it looks like the Covid numbers are going up here in the UK. Not good at all! They are not as high here in the Bournemouth area as in some other parts of the country but are the highest in the South. Hopefully they will remain under control. I am still staying firmly indoors and staying safe! Although I am off to have a flu jab tomorrow and had to go to the dentist earlier in the week but apart from that not going anywhere.
Anyway, please look after yourselves - take care and stay safe! Hugs Christine xxx
