Another Christmas Card Done



Not much to report today except one of those dreadful senior moments I just had when I accidently hit the wrong button and instead of putting some library books on hold, I deleted the entire list. Groan. I re-found most of them and requested them and then froze them correctly. Too many books come available at the same time and it was time to freeze some until I get caught up.

Today’s card is the one I made for the Stamping Bella weekly challenge. This time I made another Christmas card because the challenge was to make a card, using one of he stamps of course, from a photo she posted featuring a Christmas wreath in red and green.



I coloured the cats with my trusty old Prismacolor pencils, blended with gamsol. The background paper is from an old 6x6 paper pack. I had made another background with the other two pieces of paper for a card earlier in the year so I just taped this one together and put it back in the paper pack for future use – which was this week.  I used a square card that had the rounded bottom so I put another strip of paper from the same paper pack on the inside so it peaks through at the front. I didn't like the white showing. There is a gold sticker line over the seam – but not behind the square. Why waste a gold line that will never be seen. That’s why I keep all the small bits left over from other projects. The sentiment and the three stars are also  gold stickers.

That’s it for another week. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
  
Cheers
Violet
