Friends in the snow


As promised I am back with my second post and it's another Christmas card but I made an easel card for a change. I do love these. I've used another of my new LOTV stamps coloured with Promarkers with lots of glitter for the fur on the hat and the snow. I've distressed all the edges and used DI Work Lipstick. I sanded some Core'dinations and used it with a MS snowflake border which I don't use very much. I don;t know why beacuse it is lovely so I shall make an effort to use it more.  I used a TH on the edge file tab which I bought on eBay. I mainly wanted it for scrapbooking and as I haven't had any time for that lately this is its first outing. Sanded Core'dinations again with a LOTV stamped sentiment. The star butons are from America and I used baker's twine. Can't have naked buttons, unless they are very tiny.

It's damp and dreary here today but an afternoon in the craftroom is planned before heading off out for a meal and the theatre to see Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty. It's funny how everything we wanted to see was on in November. This is our 5th show this month then nothing until after Christmas.
