Good Morning Friends,
Hope you are all well and staying away from the colds and viruses that seem to be doing the rounds! I've had another busy week, plus a mid-week visit by my cousins from Swansea - we were joined by some more family members for a lovely lunch celebration on Wednesday, my one day off work this week...it was a lovely pre-Christmas get together.
Before I continue, I would like to welcome my latest follower Pamellia. If you don't know her blog http://mylittlecraftthings.blogspot.co.uk please do visit, because her creations are simply stunning. Thank you Pamellia, for joining my blog friends.
Coop update: Tilda has settled in amazingly well, so well that I let her free range with Cara within a few days of her arrival and now they are besties...how about that then!
I must get my blogging up together between now and Christmas, as I have lots of projects to share and not much time left....not many of them are paper craft. All my cards were very CAS this year and most of them posted without photographing first, as it was such a rush. I still have the last few presents to get and then I'm finished..phew!
Today I am sharing a Christmas lantern...do you remember the autumnal 'rusty' lantern I made? Well I have repurposed it for Christmas! Just as I dabbed the orange paint on for the rust effect, I dabbed dry white paint for snow.
To create the windows, I used masks (from Stamps Away), which I stencilled through using Cosmic Shimmer glitter embossing paste.
To finish I added an LED candle and foliage inside. The lantern is now displayed in our porch window, flickering softly.
That's it for today, thank you so much for stopping by!
Love and Hugs
