Somone special at Christmas

Morning All,

A really quick post this morning, as I need to get my skates on...but I wanted to share a card with you quickly and I know I won't get a chance after work. The Creative Cottage have given us a lovely theme this week "someone special at Christmas" I decided to make a card for my mum.

I don't usually give Christmas cards to my parents, probably because I see them so much, but I know how much my love loves this stamp and so I thought a card using this image would be lovely.

I've used blue backing paper, a lovely snowdrop paper and some more of that gorgeous blue ribbon for the background. I then stamped the mini version of the tree twice. I backed these with some lovely white shimmer paper before attaching them to the card with 3D sticky pads.

I then went mad with my blue and white glitter glues! Although you can't see that from this photo!

Finally I decided to handwrite my sentiment on white card and back this with some blue paper.

I now need to hope that mum doesn't suddenly become web savvy and find this post!!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Wedgie xxx
