I had chance to make another card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Seeing Stars" I decided to make my first Christmas card of the year and dusted off an old favourite of mine, the Hero Arts Snowman stamp and die. I have coloured with Zig Markers. The background is a die cut with my Silhouette machine and placed onto a blue distressed background. I have also added some Stickles for lots of shimmer.
I shall also add this to the Merry Monday Christmas in July Summer Link Up.
This second card I made for my oldest friend, I have known her for 50 years and she is a very special fried so I wanted to make her a special card. I have used Altenew's "Beautiful Day" set which I stamped and watercoloured with distress ink and then fussy cut out. The background is a Tim Holtz stencil. This is my third card for the Summer Challenge over at Virginia's blog.
We are off back to Surrey for a few days to visit old friends and some family, I am looking forward to catching up with everyone.
