Penny Black Christmas card

Hello everyone,

Well we didn't get to go to the Lake District because of the heavy snow there :( so my trip for seeing a host of golden daffodils and cute lambs gambolling in fields will have to wait. I also had to miss the PTI Blog Hop yesterday so it has not been a good start to the week for me. However, the weather has been so wintry it has put me in mind of Christmas so I thought I'd make my first festive card of the year and start a pile that will hopefully grow before it gets frantic in November and December (always supposing I'll be able to remember the safe place I put them in of course).

.

I used a holly bough from the Penny Black 'a wish for peace' set that I got at the Northern Papercrafts show a couple of weeks ago and I used a water pen to colour it with ink and added some red glaze pen for the berries.  The top right panel used a couple of dies from Papertrey Ink and the greeting is a Sizzlits phrase die that I added some liquid applique on to add fur to the cute little hat.

I would like to enter this into the Festive Friday challenge which was to use the trigger word 'merry',  the Rudolph Day challenge over at Stamping for Pleasure, and the Christmas Card challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and stay warm.

Hugs

  4. Hi Carol, Di again! Thanks for calling by and leaving a lovely comment about the micro beads card. The secret is in the sticky backing - it's not cheap but is made by Woodware, comes in A4 sheets with the red peel off backing like the Ultra Sticky tape you can buy, Those little perishers stick like anything to that stuff :)

    Do think about coming to play in the Snippets Playground sometime - no tough 'rools' - just use snippets/scraps and have fun! We love new playmates. A prize every week too :)

  8. I love the holly border, and the fluff on the hat is adorable! I hear ya - I constantly put stuff "Where I know I'll find them", and then I never do! I keep all my holiday cards in their own little box right in my craft room - if they don't wander, they can't get lost! Thanks for playing along with Festive Friday, I hope you'll stop by on Friday for our new challenge!
