Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends who are celebrating today … wishing you a very special day surrounded by those you love and care for! Actually, I wish that for those of you not celebrating too … taking time out to give thanks for our blessings is always good … so I will … for all the joy you bring me through your friendship, humour and warmth … a heartfelt thank you, I’m so blessed to be part of this wonderful community 🙂
My card today is a Christmas one … not surprisingly, it’s just about the most favorite theme of the moment, so I’ve done just a little combining. At Waltzingmouse Fanatics, Deborah and Tara have set quite a toughie of a challenge … to create a Christmas card using non-Christmas themed images … phew! Luckily, over at Less is More, Chrissie and Jen came to the inspiration rescue as they’re asking for a Christmas card including a bird … mmm … seems to me that could be a non-Christmas image. Lastly, at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, there’s an Anything Goes week, so I’m linking up there too.
ETA: Simon Says Stamp Monday’s theme this week is Countdown to the Holidays … a countdown of any kind to Christmas (including how many cards still to make!) … so I’m playing along there too.
On an aqua pearl card panel, I stamped the image, embossed it in white and then re-stamped and clear glitter embossed it … I wanted to create the impression of a frost laden tree. The birds were stamped, trimmed out, coated with Glossy Accents and once dry, they flew off to perch in the tree. I stamped and white embossed the sentiment and then
frosted glittered the strip along the bottom. The gems were the final touch, before the panel was mounted on a white base.
I’m looking forward to a wander round later on to see what everyone else has been inspired to create. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments really are a delight! Anita 🙂
