No apologies for another Christmas card today, I know it's early, but I need to get organized - I am hoping to avoid the headless chicken dance this year. For this one, I used a scallop card base, and the Grapevine wreath from Memory box. This was cut three times from kraft paper, and stacked so that the wreath was nice and full.....
The holly leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch, and the tiny red berries are the 'waste' from a cropodile. I coated the leaves and berries with glossy accents
When I am over here in the States I seem to watch a lot of rubbish TV - we don't subscribe to cable at home so it's a bit of a novelty. One programme I am addicted to is 'Say Yes to the Dress'. Hours and hours of watching women trying on wedding dresses. Quite why I find it so fascinating I don't know - I am a couch potato fashion expert - 'nooooo' I wail at the TV 'don't buy that one, not with those hips'. One thing I have discovered, they keep saying every bride is beautiful. I am an expert because of my addiction to this programme, and take it from me, some are far from beautiful, they may not even make it to the passable mark, especially since they ignore my advice and buy the frilly dress.....and why do middle aged (I am being charitable here, certainly mature would be apt) women renewing their vows, or getting married for the second/third or fourth time insist on getting decked out in a gown of virginal white that would look better on a sixteen year old cheerleader? It's all a mystery to me
See you tomorrow
