11 Dec 2013


Hi all, I am still getting used to my computer and have already noticed that there have been so many changes I don't know whether it is because I now have Windows 8 or not.  I cannot print anything as I cannot find the original disc for my printer I know I have put it somewhere safe but I have had it for a few years so it could be anywhere.
I have managed to catch up with commenting and visiting most of my favourite blogs I have been so inspired by you all.
I have managed to complete a Christmas card using the colours red and white.  The main image is a stamp that I bought from Stamps By Chloe a little while ago, I have heat embossed it using WOW Gold Embossing powder also some of Debbie Moore's gold glitter, I then added some Red Pearl glue to the centre of the snowflakes and star-bursts.
The white card is Centura Pearl I used my 8x8 snowflake embossing folder the image shows up lovely in this picture.  I used my EK Success circle cutter for the central mount and Marianne dies for the Poinsettia and leaves, the sentiment is from the Tonic Christmas Cracker die it comes with 3 die cut sentiments this is one of them.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I thought that you might like to see one of the latest pictures that I took of my mum and Jess they love each other so much and Jess brings my mum so much joy, she laughs quite a lot when she is with Jess and me. 

Well that is it from me for today, I hope to continue my visits to you all very soon until then take care.

Oh and so cute photo !!

MaryH said...

Lovely card with all the sparkling gold. Haven't used the gold WOW as yet. I have some of the white. Great embossing on the background as well. Very festive altogether. Enjoyed seeing the picture of your Mom & puppy. You can see a lot of love there! Had to laugh about your PC woes...doesn't that always happen? All my software is in a safe place too...where I won't forget its storage place. Can I find it when I need it? Not usually! I'm waffling about migrating to Win8...guess I'll have to, when we update this computer. I still maintain XP on an older pc, as I have software that won't work with newer Windows versions. TFS & Merry Christmas.
