Christmas Time !!

Have had a lovely relaxing craft day today, making christmas cards! Managed to make 2, what with Elliot needing attention, tea to drink, lunch to cook and eat and gossip to catch up on I think that I did pretty well!!lol

Used some clip art and decoupaged it then added glitter.

Two less to worry about!

Also managed to post a birthday card to Australia - should have been there yesterday, never mind!

Posted a RAK of to Nicks yesterday, as a thank you for the I Dare you Swap.

I used my new favorite crackle paint for the base coat. Then stamped and embossed using some gorgeous embossing powder by Sparkel and Sprinkle. The roof is fantasy film, inked with alcohol inks. A friendly plastic face on german scrap wings.
The window frame is a slide mount, inked and then utee'd with some added embossing powder. I cut the window out of the house and then used a transparency, in the photo I have put paper behind it so that the image can be seen.
Finally added a key charm on a chain.
I can not believe that it is nearly Friday again already. Where does the time go?!
