Christmas Baubles

Good morning friends, I hope you are all well. Yesterday was such a dreadful day, the fog just didn't lift at all. Makes you feel so miserable doesn't it? Anyway fortunately I didn't have to go out and there was plenty of wood to keep the woodburner working all day long. The guy from Autoglass came to repair my windscreen because there was a chip in it. It was extremely small but I'm sure that would have changed once the really freezing weather started. The good news was they were giving  free set of wiper blades with each windscreen repair  and this was the last day of the promotion.

Anyway, enough of the waffle, let's get onto my card.

Had to use flash I'm afraid because it was just so dark the entire day.

I have made another Christmas card using LOTV diecuts so it was quick and simple. The papers are another very old set. They are the same Papermania range as yesterday but this time from the Traditional, rather than the Contemporary, set. I used the Memory Box Frosty Border and  Marianne Creatables Swedish Snowflakes.

Well let's hope the weather improves today and I hope you all have a good day.

Love from Christine xx

  1. Hi Christine, love your layout on this card and the soft greens are gorgeous! Carole Z X

  2. Hi Christine, I love using different colours for Christmas cards. Last year I used sage green and mauve which sound terrible but the turned out Ok. So I do love your creation and LOTV Die cut. I am going to visit the LOTV stall at the Hobbycrafts show at the SECC Glasgow this weekend and buy some of their products, I have my list LOL.

    Hope your weather improves today.
