A special Christmas card

Evening Folks,
Hope you are all getting prepared for the big day.  Me and the youngest daughter survived the trip to Tesco for the food shopping.  Although, it was touch and go up some of the aisles lol.  I find it hard to believe the amount of food some people buy.  Mind you, my daughter was keeping me on track.  She kept saying 'Mum, you are not feeding the 5000'.  I must admit I do tend to go a bit overboard but I would hate anyone to go hungry.

The card I am posting today took me an absolute age to do.  That is because it is for my Mum who is a cardmaker and scrapbooker herself.  She always does me such a lovely card and I wanted hers to be special too.  Here is what I came up with.

I used  a cute decoupage Tatty Ted image as the centrepiece.  I then used my lattice die to cut a framework out of white card which I mounted onto white glitter paper.  Another memory box die was cut out of silver card as the backing for the poinsettia flower. Some white ribbon, sentiments and silver glittered snowflakes completed the card.  Apologies for the darkness of the photo.  I needed to photograph it last night and it was just so dark.

I gave the card to my Mum today when she arrived and she loved it.  She gave me the most gorgeous card and I will take a picture of it tomorrow to show you all.

Thanks for popping by.
