Well, I am really sliding in under the wire...for a while there I thought I might even not get my card submitted in time!
We have been busy in the garden this month...whenever the sun breaks through the gloom, we have been found in the garden, digging and dividing up our perennials...well...DH has been digging that is!
It hasn't been done for over 6 years so really was needing to be done. I will post some pictures when we are finally finished up with it.
This has put me quite a bit behind in the card creations department let me tell you! I have quite a bit of catching up to do with my visits as well...I try to catch up by paging back and commenting on any posts that I missed, so hopefully I have not missed too much or missed anyone completely!
Here is my card for Rudolph Day. It is a Stampin' Up image and the card has been kept simple to allow the simple beauty of the tree image to shine through. No patterned paper was used...just a bit of snowflake stamping with some versamark ink and heat embossed on the brown card base...just to the right of the white scalloped border.
I played with the idea of putting stickles on the trees just to kid of sparkle up the filligree look but so far I have resisted...what do you think?
