Xmas Crafts


Yesterday OH and 4 year old son went to Wembley to watch the Rugby League Double Header - Wales V New Zealand and England V Australia - and son was supporting the OZ's, he says because of Aunty Bren and Laurie (my best friend and her daughter who live in Sydney), but OH says it's because they were surrounded by young good looking Australian girls !!

Todays image is another Cat - my mate Janice keeps thinking i'm becoming a cat lover, but no that's not the case, just the fact that there are far more Cat PB's then there are Dog ones !!! I stamped the image in black, but for the snowflake i stamped in versamark and then embossed with silver and highlighted it with 'Crystal' Stickles.  I decided i wanted to make my own background, so i found some holographic silver paper and used CB 'Snowflakes' and for the white card used my PB 'Snow Scroll' and embossed with silver. For the snowflake i've covered it in Stampin Up heat & stick powder and dazzling diamonds.
