Well after Simon Says Stamp sent me the Ornament and Presents stamp set, the least I could do was make a few cards. for this one I used the rather fabulous large Fiskars fuse snowflake, covered with my new favourite glitter called a hint of glitter from Katysue Designs. - it has a wonderful large 'grain' and really glitters, perfect for snow. The silver snowflake circles, little background snowflakes and the sentiment are from the stamp set, and I am loving using regular silver sewing thread.
A new trick of mine is to cut down my 6 x 6 base cards to 6 x 4 1/2", that way I can hang sentiments and elements off the side of the card and they still fit into the envelope, so after years of doing square cards I am enjoying this size at the moment
So I did another stint in the charity shop, apart from clucking at some of the rubbish people donate (why would they do that? Do they have a clear out of old underwear and socks and realize their dustbin is full, so have a lightbulb moment and think 'aha, charity shop.....), there was one amusing moment when a woman came up to me with a top in her hand and said 'have you got this in a size 16' I felt like saying, 'madam, this is not Harrods' but I was very nice and smiled and said nice things. Proud of my restraint...
Our little Max started his new junior school yesterday, growing up fast, and I think a quick lesson was given by Mum on how to tie a grown up tie...I bet he didn't look as tidy as this when she picked him up!
Almost the weekend again. Have a good one, I'll be back tomorrow x
