How is everyone? Good I hope! I got down to some crafting at the weekend and picked up some bits and pieces so I decided to set myself my own challenge. It is just under 6 weeks until I go out to visit Hubby again, so every week until I go I have to make two Christmas cards. I can't sub them for something else either, has to be Christmas. I figure then at least my close family and friends will at least get a home made card even if others have to get a shop bought one - I hate doing that though. I like to give everyone a home made one but sometimes it's just not possible. I don't have a great deal of time at the moment so I have to make the most of what I do have.
Well I went to the devil zone that is Hobbycraft at the weekend... their stock was not great! I was very disappointed especially as I took my brother with me and he was desperate to get some things and they didn't have anything he was after. He was quite let down and I felt really bad for him. I managed to get some of the new Boofle Christmas goodies - hey it's not LOTV for once! lol
This is my creation using my Boofle Stash and there'll be more to come for sure, cos he's such a cute bear!
Unfortunately the paper is very shiny so it's a bit difficult to photograph - so there's quite a bit of glare.
Here's my wee bears close up! I added the glitter, it's stickles ice glitter glue, it's made my paper a bit wibbly-wobbly but it's better now it's nice and dry! lol
Here's the inside of my card, the stars are from the inside bits that are on the front, I just thought it added an extra wee something.
Tomorrow I will be back with my Brother's Challenge card for LOTV, I need to tidy up the pictures a bit before they go up. I hope you guys like and if I stick to this challenge (not if, I WILL stick to it) then you'll be seeing a lot more Christmas cards! Take care and thanks for visiting, Lyns xx
