Christmas Adornments

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all having a good start to the week. I was given the opportunity to make this Christmas card today when my computer crashed and I had to wait for “The Guy” to come and fix it. What else to do while your waiting. What made it better was the postal delivery man showed up with my latest items from Stampin Up. What perfect timing!


The lovely Edgelits Dies called Adorning Accents along with the matching Textured Impressions Embossing Folders were among my order. Couldn’t wait to use them! I made a kind of frame with them by using the piece that was cut off the base mat of Very Vanilla CS. The straight edge is hidden beneath another new (to me) item, Victoria Lace! Did you happen to notice the sprinkling of shimmer on the base Real Red CS? I even had time to make some Shimmer spray!


I must at this point say thanks to Trish and Treasure for lending me her Bird Punch, I’ll have my own sometime I promise! I’ve put a little matching button on his eye and painted his wing with some gorgeous Shimmer Paint!
The girls at 52 Christmas Card throwdown have inspired the button! Thank you ladies, I’ll enter my card this week Smile I also will hook up with the Make it Monday linky party, just to share it around, I'm quite chuffed with the results. To think, I nearly was working all day instead. (Best get on to that now - work that is aaaghh it'll take me all night!)
I decorated the inside too, just because I could!


I hope you like my first go at using the new edgelits dies. They are available in the Winter Mini Catalogue and are very reasonably priced! You can check out the catalogues from my side-bar and if your an Australian resident, you could order anything you like from those catalogues from me – just email me to organise it!

Have a great week and I’ll see you again soon.
