Blue Christmas

Evening Folks
Sorry about this late posting but you know how it is.  Time just seems to have slipped away from me tonight.
My hubby has gone out to see a band at our local so I have the TV remote and the house to myself.  Not very often that happens.  A chance to sit in my pyjamas and watch mindless TV while doing some blogging.

I am now well and truly getting on with my christmas crafting and today is a card that I have done for one of my nephews.

As you can see I have done another easel card.  I decided to use my favourite colour combo for christmas cards - blue and silver.  The image is a stamp from the Mulberry range by Crafters Companion.  The papers were also from Crafters Companion and were some freebies that I got in a craft magazine.  Everything is matted onto silver mirror card.  I added a large die cut snowflake which is cut from glitter card (white and blue).  I love these little trees and blinged them up using some gems.

Thanks for popping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
