we had decided to use the Emboss Resist Technique which I love because it's another chance to get well and truly inky with my favourite Distress Inks and luckily my desk was covered with loads of Hero Arts Christmas Stamps and Timmie's Distress Inks.....so here is my "rushing at the last minute" effort.....in fact I was in such a hurry to get a pic in what little daylight was left that I forgot to glitter my snowflake....a snowflake without glitter....oh the shame....that is almost as much of a sin as naked buttons
Hero Arts: Fabulous Flourish
Sentiment: Merry Christmas Trees
Lace...cord and thread from Simply Create
Self Adhesive Gems from my stash
TH Distress Ink....Dusty Concord
I have a big dilemma which is driving me crackers...obviously I had to remove the lens cap from the camera before I could take this pic but where did I put it...I have turned the cubbyhole upside down....emptied the bin....pulled my storage units away from the wall and believe me that almost killed me...I've looked high and low and it's nowhere to be found..disappeared off the face of the planet.....and NO the Furry Boy hasn't eaten it...so where the heck IS IT????? One of life's little mysteries right enough. My lovely bloggy buddy Anne is popping round this morning for a coffee....little does she know she will be on a "down on her hands and knees mission" to find the elusive Lens Cap before any coffee is served.
I know I promised you all a tutorial on the Poinsettia Christmas Hanger BUT I haven't had time to get it all put together.....big apologies folks but for anyone who is interested here is the template for the leaf shape in the meantime.
and you will need a 5" circle to place all the leaf shapes onto...
a little reminder of what it looked like....if you want to give it a go...and the red leaves are used flat
and what on earth is Mr Blogger playing at...throwing his toys out of the pram last week and preventing me from leaving comments with his Error 503 message....he seems to have got fed up of that one but now he is on a go slow uploading pics.....if it isn't one thing with that awkward sod it's another. So while the going is good I spent last night with coffee and choccy digestives for company visiting some of my bloggy buddies over at WOYWW before he throws another spanner in the works.....nothing like a good snoop around other folks' workspaces....and before I forget it's only.....
sleeps and counting....
Catch up with you all tomorrow for a sneaky peek
