Christmas Friends

Evening peeps

It's been a busy couple of days at work again, so I haven't had much time for crafting.  We had to do the Christmas layout changes on Sunday after the store closed, we didn't finish until 12 that night and then I had to be back in again the following morning.  I have to say that even with the long hours, I am still loving this job.


Anyway, my first card this week is a Christmas card.  The digital stamp is called Winter Friends from Bugaboo Stamps and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Red card stock
Double sided adhesive sheet
Tattered Lace Delicate Snowflakes embossing folder
Diamond Press Nested Tags die set
Die'sire Snow Is Falling die set

Tonic Merry Christmas die

Snow White

Evening peeps

What a busy few days, it was my Mum's 70th Birthday on Saturday so we decided to take her out for the day in London doing a couple of the tourist things that we never get the chance to do.  We started with a visit around Kensington Palace, she was over the moon when we realised that Prince William and Prince Harry were just leaving for the remembrance parade.

Our next stop was the top of the Shard, what an amazing view, you can see all of London.  Because my Brother doesn't do heights, he met up with us after, but we didn't tell her he was coming so that was a nice surprise.  To end the day, we got the river bus down the Thames to Greenwich for a nice meal.  It was a very long day, but well worth it.


Anyway, this is the first card I have made this week.  It is a Christmas card with with all dies.


Materials used are:

White card stock
Red card stock
