No, your eyes do not deceive you lovely followers - I really am posting two cards in one day. All week I have been singing the Christmas Carol "Oh Christmas Tree" and seeing I'm not putting my tree up this year this is the next best thing.
It's been a very stressful weekend, for my husband's grandfather is critically ill and expected to pass away within days. Yesterday we spent the day by his bedside. He said his goodbyes to us all, telling me to look after his Grandson. It was one of the most heart wrenching things I have ever had to experience.
Today I wanted to do nothing more taxing than to colour in, glue things to other things and to play with paper. My husband is doing similar mind-numbing activities, he is esconced in front of his X-box.
I created this card after seeing a design using a freebie image from Bird's Cards many months ago. You can find the digi & the button idea here. I then forgot all about it until Shaz did a similar creation.
This card will be for my grandmother, as it uses both buttons and lace that were salvaged from her house before it was sold recently.
The DP is a lovely soft green but hasn't shown up as well as I would have liked in the photo. I used my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder for the white card. I have added silver and white ribbon, as well as the white lace for embellishments. The 'ornaments' are both buttons and pearl stick ons. The sentiment was a freebie but I have lost the details of where I got it.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Little Miss Muffet Challenge - Buttons & Ribbons
The Paper Variety - Inspired by a Chrsitmas song.
Until next time,
