Pearly tree

Made a mess on my nice tidy desk! And boy did I enjoy it!!!
But I have earned several brownie points from 'he who put up the shelves and organised' as I HAVE put most of the stuff I've finished with away!

Finished my wedding commission (thank goodness) - took me ages as I couldn't get out of Christmas mode at all and I also have a couple of other projects which I want to finish so the brain cells were wandering thinking of other things instead of the task in hand!

Still, made a couple of Christmas cards and this one I managed to get a decent pic of before what little light we had  disappeared altogether.

Papers are Foundations Spots and Stripes, Kanban Christmas tree stamp inked with Aqua pigment ink and clear embossed then matted onto some matching card stock from my stash. Punched out a couple of snowflakes and added some aqua ribbon then finished off the tree with these scrummy pearls which were a challenge win.

Challenges -
Crafty Cardmakers - Photo Inspiration
Sparkles Christmas - Contemporary Colour Combo

The rain has not abated here all day but we're a lot better off than a lot of the UK - no floods thank goodness - hope your feet are dry wherever they rest tonight! x
