I made this card back in July, and for some reason hesitated about putting it on the blog, I wasn't totally happy with the colouring and thought it looked a bit plain. But after letting it sleep in a folder for months, I pulled it out and really like it on second viewing. Maybe I should have wrapped a ribbon around the dark blue strip. Never mind. What do you think?
This weekend there is a spooky happening going on over at the Making Spot, the blog for Papercraft Inspirations magazine and it's sister publications. Go over and take a look, lots of ideas. I will be joining the party tomorrow, so be sure to come back to see what I have done
I do know that it's only October, but I keep buying Christmas magazines, full of stuff about decorating your house and baking cookies for your neighbours. Now I like my neighbours, but really can't imagine that I will be baking sugar crusted pecan cookies for them and presenting them in a cute jar with a handcrafted label. One decorated house looked lovely, with handmade frosted glass candle holders glowing on each step of the stairs, but the reason for my pre-season excitement is that this year, for the first time in years I have all my chicks together under my roof for Christmas day - which means that I will have the little chickadees as well - I can imagine the mayhem if I put delicately crafted candles on the stairs............maybe I better plan to cook some of those sugar crusted cookies for the fire brigade......
Come by and see my new video tomorrow, oh and a giveaway too x
