Baubles & Snowflakes

Well, all is calm on the kiddie front so I may actually get chance to finish this post before we have some lunch and then I'll try and persuade the kids to do a bit of homework.

Bought my daughter a new pair of boots yesterday and she cannot wait to get to school tomorrow to show everyone. She's so chuffed with them they were on as soon as she got out of bed this morning and she came in to me in nightie with new handbag across shoulder and boots on. She's been trotting round in them ever since!

My son bought himself a new XBox game yesterday so I can hear distant grunts and complaining (when he's losing) but apart from that he seems quite happy with his purchase too.

Now then, I have made a Christmas card which was inspired by Jillian Foster's card here.

The baubles, snowflake stamps and sentiments are all from the Hero Arts stamp set Magic of Christmas (CL462).

The baubles, snowflakes and outer edge of the card were all inked with Tim Holtz distress inks in various colours: Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain and Antique Linen.

I cut the bauble stamps out 4 times and pieced the centres after inking them. The baubles were highlighted on the stripes with some Prismacolor pencils in co-ordinating colours.

Finished off with some co-ordinating self adhesive gems and some lovely brown ribbon.

I have decided to go potty this week and enter this card for several challenges:
Creative Inspirations - anything Christmas or winter related
The Stamp Man - Tim Holtz
2 Sisters - snowflakes
Crafty Calendar - Winter Snowflakes

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
