Ho, Ho, Ho

Morning Sassy Fans,

Where does the weekend go? Seriously I seem to be living for the next bank holiday or day off work lately.  I think we should do 3 day weeks, wonder whether my boss would agree with me, ummmmm, best put that on the back burner.

I love making Christmas cards and usually aim to start in July and still never have enough.  I have used Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy "Secret Santa" which will be available for sale after our blog hop this Saturday, oh yeah put that date in your diary, this release is not one you'll want to miss.

I have used lots of texture on this card with Geso, Acyrlic Paint, Dimensional/Irredescent paint and also puff paint heated with my heat gun to give it that puff.

  8. oh Tracey ...what can I say, this is stunning!!


  9. I like your offestting of the sentiment & the scalloped circle behind it & how that is carried through with the muslin weave behind the image panel. It really does look as if there is s dusting of snow all over this & that big flower is intriguing. This is what I would call a very daring card - & I love the way you have used the cool reds & cool greys adding to the wintery feel of htis. Love those hints of aqua peeking trhough in the patterned paper & the way your stamped swirls around the image echo the curls in her hair.
    Brilliant seeing this following from Lou's use of the same image - so utterly different.
