Hello there! How are you this fine morning? Well we're all good although Penny's tired after her opening night - all went well though so thats good. Here's a picture of most of the children involved in the changing room just before curtains up. They did so very well - amazing really! I get to sit in the audience tonight so I'm looking forward to that.
Its not such good news with my dad - the doctor has diagnosed vascular dementia - although he still has to have a scan to confirm this. The symptoms are all there though - we just have to hope that he doesn't deteriorate too quickly I guess.
Today I have a Christmas card to share with you made using a set of Chocolate baroque stamps that I bought in the sale - I couldn't resist these and have enjoyed playing with them. I have been toying with the idea of applying for the DT - not that I would have stood a chance - but now the deadline has been brought forward and I'm too late - nevermind - obviously not meant to be! Lol!
I made the background using one stamp from this set - I simply stamped in versa and repeated the pattern down each side before adding red glitter Wow powders and heat embossing. Then I added pan pastels to add the colour. The main image was stamped onto card in versa and then heat set with black sparkling wow powders. Then I added more pan pastels with the colours intensified for the topper. The flower is an extra one I made from felt for the pan pastel GDT that I did in december - you can read about that here.....the sentiment was cut using a britannia die.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
pan pastelpanpasteluk ; not just card and paper
wow powderswowembossingpowder: fabric
ABC Christmasabcchristmaschallenge: B is for bare minimum of embellishments
Thanks so much for dropping by today and for any comments you choose to leave! Big Hugs to you!
