Yep! You read it right. Only 6 months, 26 weeks, or 182 days or 5 pay days until the day when we will hopefully have been visited by the man in the Red Suit!!
So in preparation for this I join in every month with my Mate's Rudolph Day Challenge.
Last night I had a rummage through my Christmas basket and came across my last piece of paper which measured about 7.5" square and wanted to practice a bit of thiftiness and get as many cards as I could without cutting the paper into small pieces. So I cut it on the lines in the pattern on the paper horizontally, and trimmed to fit on a 7x5 card and chomped the corners with MS snowflake punch. Now what next? I found a strip of pale turquoise cardstock left over from a layout which matched as well as some white strips of TH "lace". An idea was born. On my desk, left over from a recent project was some dark turquoise card. I cut three pieces of the pale turquoise to fit below the PP, I cut some more "lace" from Snippets of white, pale turquoise and dark turquoise card. I remembered I had some fine silver thread so threaded some through the top layer of lace.
Next I put it all together, having first cut some small squares of turquoise and placed behind the top corners. I cut some snowflakes using Spellbinders dies and punched some tiny snowflakes which I adhered and then added Stickles in there.
Now to prove I made more than one..
I have two of something else I can share with you today too. Two newbies to the Snippets Playground who were bought for me by Mr Hettie for my birthday...
Meet Hinge and Bracket. Some of my older readers will know who they are. Younger ones please feel free to Google them!
That's enough posing for you, time to find some food!
Right, off to call by at the Snippets Playground to check on my new Girlies and take my cards as they are made entirely from Snippets with only a few small bits left over. Don't worry, I will use them too.
Why not make a few Christmas cards and join in to the Rudolph Day challenge? You have until the end of the month and there is a prize to be drawn.
Thanks for calling by.
