Bright Christmas

Hi everyone, I will have to be using my scanner for the next week as my daughter has taken my camera away on Guide camp. I have never used the scanner's not that bad.

I have made a start on some more Christmas cards.
This one I started with a blank white card then a layer of purple Bazzill card.  Next came this wonderful new combo Christmas paper from Blue Edge Crafts.  I just love the colours.  The blue strip is sandable Bazzill Card each comes with an embossed shape....this has a star shape which I thought was perfect for the card.  I used my emery board to sand it back a little.  I cut three pink trees from a scrap of the combo paper to add to the blue strip.  I have tied some twine across the top .....this twine is all the way from my friend Ilo in Germany.  Thanks Ilo.  Added a silver rub-on sentiment.  Now the image is a Mo Manning design....I so love colouring her artwork.  I have used my copic pens, a touch of Kindy Glitz and Dimensional Magic on the globe.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend.
I plan on a little crafting, time with hubby and catching up with a couple of girlfriends.
See you all Monday.
