Yep, it`s me again!

I`m back!
with my 3rd ( and last) post of the day.
I mentioned earlier that I might pop back with a Christmas card. Well here it is.
  The design is based on a card by Andrea which I cased shamlessly. You can find her original and beautiful card HERE.
I think I went a bit over the top with the blue and maybe should have put a contrast with it but it`s done now and I do quite like it.
The DP are both from Elusive Images Artilicious Christmas Greetings CD.
The sentiment stamp is also by EI and is embossed in detail silver.
I`ve added a frame made with nestie labels 4 dies and placed it over the sentiment.
Then I just added some ready made snowflakes, a couple of plain gems to some and some silver ribbon.

Alan`s painting the kitchen and dining room today so I`m hiding in my craft room. As I usually do the decorating I do tend to interfere a bit and tell him how I would do it so I think it`s best for both of us if I stay out of the way. I did sneak down earlier to throw a quick meal together and he`d sandpapered all the woodwork and left the living room door open. All the cleaning I did yesterday is now 1/2 an inch deep in dust but I was a good wife, I bit my tongue and didn`t say a word.  ( Took some doing though) Lol.
He`s got the whole week off so I might be spending even more time locked away in the loft hee hee!

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
