Traditional Christmas

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well and getting ready for the big day.  Did my last stint at work today until the New Year so I am one happy bunny at the moment.  Going to do the food shopping tomorrow with my daughter.  My Mum is arriving tomorrow and is staying with us until Thursday.  Our Christmas day will be quite a quiet one as the eldest daughter is going to her fiance's for the day.  However, on boxing day my Sister and her hubby and my nephews are coming over for a couple of days so the house will be a little less quiet lol.  I do love spending time with the family at Christmas.

Anyway, believe it or not, I think I have now finished my Christmas cards.  It will be so nice to be able to make something other than a Christmas card.  I do need to replenish my stocks of birthday cards too.

My card share today is a Christmas card I have made for my sister and her hubby.  I have kept this one more traditional.

The tree in the centre is a glittered tree done on acetate.  It is so sparkly in real life.  The papers are from Papermania and were matted and layered using mirror card.  I used some lovely ribbon with snowflakes on across the centre and kept the other embellishments quite minimal.

Thanks for popping by and hope to be back with another post before christmas.  Hopefully, I can now catch up with some commenting.

Hi, Mags - first, Merry Christmas and a big thank you for visiting my blog recently. Next WOW - your card is amazing. Love the way you captured the glitter so beautifully. What adhesive do you use under the acetate? Do you "color" with the glue, sprinkle the glitter, wait for it to dry, and then repeat with the next color glitter? Beautiful card! ((Christmas Hugs))
