Hope you are all having a good weekend. As our daughters are away on holiday at the moment hubby and I are having a quiet day today. We normally cook a lovely Sunday roast for everyone but today we are having a day off and going out for lunch. I might even sneak some crafty time in this afternoon while hubby is napping lol.
It has been a pretty exciting time this week in crafting terms. I have won a couple of challenges and been invited to join the Crafting Musketeers design team. The Crafting Musketeers run a monthly challenge and my first challenge with them with be on the 2nd October so look out for that. I also have some more exciting news but can't share that at the moment, just watch this space.
Today's card share is a little christmas card made with my new punch around the page punch from Martha Stewart. I had some gift vouchers from Amazon that I hadn't spent so decided to treat myself to a couple of Martha Stewart punches. The one I have used on this card is called Cherish.
Just love the shape from this punch and I can see me using this a lot. After punching the base out I used some Tumbled Glass distress ink around the edges and added a few pearls for interest. The topper is from The Hobby House and is so cute. I did ink lightly around the edges and mounted onto some blue card. The background paper is from my stash and was a loose sheet and really can't remember where I got it. Added some blue organza ribbon and a bow. The bow was topped with a dazzler also from Hobby House. The sentiment and little snowflakes were in my stash.
Did you notice the little watermark in the bottom corner of the card. I have finally mastered adding a watermark to my creations using a free photo editor called Pic Monkey. It is so easy to use and you can create your own watermark or add a custom one. I am not really sure I like the one I have done myself so might have to treat myself to a custom made one lol.
Thanks for popping by and look forward to hearing what you think of my little creation. I do enjoy reading all your comments and really appreciate them.
