Gazing Shepherd


Boo Hiss OH has fixed hoover, so i had to do some domestic duties, but on the plus side OH and son are driving to Yorkshire tonight (was going to go earlier, but as the M25 was shut it didn't seem worth it), as OH's team are in the Challenge Cup (Rugby League) semi final tomorrow and they are not coming back till Monday night, as OH has a meeting in Sunderland on Monday - yipee, therefore i can catch up with a couple of challenges.

The stamp i've used today i have been after for a while as my lovely friend Ann kept sending me Christmas cards with him on. I don't normally do white cards, as i always want to add colour to them !!, i have embossed and punched (small snowflakes strip) onto pearlescent white card and the large snowflakes - i used white glitter card. I covered the image with Stampin Up - heat & stick powder, then dazzling diamonds to enable it to keep up with the bling of the card.

Oh Sam it's beautiful, the white really suits it, this always reminds me of Chris as a wee boy, around your son's age, that's why you always get him,
