I'm Back ....


I have had a very difficult few months, without going into details, as it is far to complicated, I can honestly say it has been the worst time of my life.  I have not been able to concentrate on crafting and had to step down from the design teams that I was on. Hoping now that things are going to be a bit more settled and I can get back to some sort of normal life.

So I have made a start on some Christmas Cards. I really enjoyed making this one. Was so pleased to be able to get hold of the Tied Together embossing folder, been trying to get one for ages and several places now have them in stock.

I have used Centura Pearl, embossed with the folder and the bottom half with the Hougie Board.  The stamps are from Joanna Sheen which I have embossed with silver.

So good to be back and crafting again.

Challenges:

Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Embossing
CHNC 2- Anything Goes (Christmas)
Deep Ocean - Christmas in July
Hobby House - Christmas
Joanna Sheen - Wet or Dry Embossing (used Joanna Sheen stamps)
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Fussy and Fancy
