Merry Christmas Everyone!


Merry Christmas to all my followers and visitors.

Hope you all have a wonderful  and peaceful day. Thanks so much for visiting my blog during the year, and hope you will continue to visit into 2013.

Today I would like to show you my very last Chirstmas card for 2012, and it is the 8" * 8" Christmas card I made for my darling husband ... I always make his card on Christmas Eve, and this year was no different.

I used this gorgeous LotV stamp "Feathered Friends" which I chose specially when I had a LotV voucher win, as I know he loves feeding the birds in the garden so I thought it would be romantic. I already used this stamp for another family member, but this time I have held off on the flowers and substituted some hearts and snowflakes instead with a big silver bow.  The sentiments were actually quite tricky - the "husband" sentiment was a combo from a Fizzy Moon stamp set; and the "Sending Love At Christmas" was another combo of two sentiments from a Crafter's Companion "Mulberry Wood" set .. it took me a few goes to get the relative positions right for the two stamps!


Stamps: LotV "Feathered Friends"; Fizzy Moon "It's All About Him"; Crafter's Companion Mulberry Wood;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; glamour dust on little girl's collar and hat;
Papers: LotV "Frosty Christmas";
Supplies: silver mesh ribbon and bells from The Ribbon Girl; gems from The Hobby House and Papermania; narrow silver ribbon from my stash;
Tools: Whimsy "Winter Jewel 3" snowflake die; Marianne D heart die.
