Well the hot summer temps are set to plummet today 30C tomorrow 17C almost a fifty percent drop, no more sleeping with frozen hot (should that be cold)water bottles 😄 and I have been enjoying the overcast days bringing some relief from the heat and it allowed me to get to my craft space and have a play with some of my goodies that arrived late last year before Christmas.
My aim for making 4-5 Christmas cards has gone out the window, here I am with one day left of January and I have made just one, maybe I’ll catch up next month post-surgery while I take things easy, or not. I have made enough progress for my Bondi Physio to send me off to see a local physio for yoga/pilates stretches and treatment- which will begin in April as she is a popular physio. I can now last 15mins on my feet before I start feeling ill, only issue is as my Physio has untwisted my muscles other problems have been stirred up, meaning my stamping/colouring ability has shortened😞 my arm gets tired and I turn white in the face. Progress is progress and slow and steady is working well. Small steps everyday. Whinging over. 😊
I made a 5x7” card using a mix of papers and scraps from my stash, I had thought of this card when I ordered the semi circle and reindeer dies from AliExpress last year, it turned out a little darker than I planned on, not being able to find the paler woodgrain paper I wanted to use. Quite a masculine card, I think it would look great using some tartan paper too...
Here’s my Card:-
What I used:-
White 5x7” card blank-12.6x17.8cm
Green, woodgrain, white and kraft card and papers
Glitter paper black and silver

I would like to enter this card in:-
