I hope that you're all keeping well and happy.
I've had a busy morning, catching up with some housework and I've made two Christmas cakes which are just starting to smell amazing. It's made me think that I really need to start getting organised for Christmas as today is the first time this year that I've given it a thought and it will be here before I know it!
I'm here today to share a card that I've made for this week's challenge over at Allsorts, their theme is 'White on White.' Now is not very often that I make a card without using inks, so this one is quite different from my usual style and I hope that you like it.
I went to the Stamperama show at Harrogate on Saturday. It was a fabulous show with lots of stalls and a great atmosphere. I was quite relieved really after the last show at Doncaster had been so much quieter than it usually is. I had a lovely catch up with Jean and Malcolm from Crafty Individuals and also with the Inkylicious crew. I also met and had a chat with the lovely Judith Smith who's the head of Chocolate Baroque's Design Team. There were lots of fabulous demos going on and I really enjoyed watching John Lockwood using the new stamps by Two Jays which he'd demoed on Hochanda last week. It's the first time I've met him and he's such a lovely chap. The samples on his stall were beautiful and I was tempted into buying the Cut and Emboss Snowflake border that I've used on today's card. There were some beautiful samples made with it and I just couldn't resist. Here's my card:
Some of you may have noticed that I also used this folder on yesterday's Remembrance card too. I've just a put it on a white 6 x 6 card and used a snowflake die which I think is by Memory Box, but don't quote me on that. I've used Ranger Liquid Pearls on each of the border's snowflakes. It's a very simple card to make and you could easily make large batches of this in a very short time, which is exactly what we all need in the run up to Christmas. I may be temped to add a gem to the center but I've left it off for now to fit in with the them of the challenge.
I think that's all for today. It's been lovely to have a little more time to chat as I seem to always be in a rush these days.
Take care and I wish you lots of happy crafting x
