Not long now! - Monday 10th December

Good Morning Blog Friends,

I hope you are all in fine health and not too cold! I am sorry I didn't get to all your blogs yesterday, it has been such a busy weekend, with a visit to Cirencester for a nice frosty walk in the park and a stroll around the market (and some mulled wine), then friends to stay and a meal out in a lovely local pub Saturday much going on that I haven't crafted at all...I am never going to get those last few cards made!!
Today is a quick post featuring another card made with the '25th December' stamp by Woodware. This time I stamped it twice and covered the bottom layer with Tom Holz Frosty Film. The '25' and the holly, I coloured with promarkers and then used a versamark pen to coat the 25 and the berries, before heat embossing with red glitter embossing powder.

I matted and layered this on a tag, which had been distressed around the edges with Vintage Photo and then pricked with my pokey tool.

A busy week ahead, but I'm determined to get those few cards finished..have a great week friends!
