Morning all! well wasn't sunday a wash out?! And yes we were in the pouring rain serving coffee! We got given some of those plastic ponchos you get in theme parks on water rides but only after we were already soaking!! Anyone who has seen my facebook photos will get an idea of how drowned we looked!
Today it is super cold in my house as the gas men who are updating the pipes in the road have turned the gas off so no heating! It should be back on this eve I hope so or it will be 3 pairs of socks in bed! I also went to my works xmas party last night so I need a little warmth in my home after a long night!
On to my card for today which is another of my GDTs over at papertake weekly sponsored this week by the fabulous Whiff of Joy and this time the theme is I'm dreaming of a ..... (your fave colour).. xmas and I chose... well I was going to choose green for a change but still ended up back in the pink!
I have used beautiful papers from Black market paper society's sugar plum range along with snowflakes and icicles cut with Mariannes dies. My flowers are mostly wild orchids with a fab crown pin also from WOC which I have attached some other beads to. I have used silver pearls and cheesecloth from stash along with my white ribbon. My fab sentiment is again from the brilliant waltzingmouse.
My stunning image is yet another one of those beautiful elves from mo manning how cute? I have coloured her with Prismas and added some stickles and glamour dust to her white fluffy trimmings. I have edged with worn lipstick di and machine stitched.
