A few weeks back Andrew took to his bed with a really bad dose of the flu … so I donned my Florence Nightingale nurse’s cap and looked after him. Dear little lamb really was poorly. Lucky enough I didn’t get a hint of the sniffles.
Travelled back from the UK two weeks ago after spending a fabulous time with all the family and guess who woke up the next day with the most horrendous racking cough and cold. How does that work???? Hence very little on the blogging front has been accomplished.
Whilst everyone was either at school, college or working I had three fabulous days of crafting with Irene. We each had two projects on the go which we were trying to finish. I still have two projects to finish!!!! Not even sure that Irene has finished hers yet either.
So the clocks have gone back and now we are into November which means a new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges where this month’s theme is ‘Traditional Christmas’. The lovely Brenda chose it.
Very different for me this time round, I have made an 8″ x 8″ card. Cut a window aperture with a very old Cookie Cutter die and placed a stamped image behind. The background was made with a brick stencil and molding paste. Painted and inked over when it was dry before finger dabbing with gilding wax.
Before putting the die cut window through an embossing folder I stamped all over with a background stamp then lastly finger dabbed with gilding wax. Used an Anna Griffin bunting stamp which also came with a little alphabet set and spelt out Merry Christmas.
I really hope that you can join us for this month’s challenge. To enter just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store.
