Its Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!

Because I have made another two Christmas cards tonight, I have even had the dreaded glitter out again, brand new pair of jeans covered in sparkly black fairy dust now in fact an awful lot of everything is covered in glitter, including the keyboard...its so pwetty!!!

I love the Penny Black girly stamps and bought this one last year but I had an idea to use some flocking on it...Oh my god this card has probably took me a total of four hours to make... flocking is a little flocker...and will only stick really nicely to dry adhesive so I have painstakingly applied double sided tape to all the areas I wanted the flocking to stick to. I have really gone to town on this stamped image as its also been decoupaged, glittered, water coloured, glazed and I have even added liquid applique to resemble fluffy bits!!! I will be saving this card for somebody very special believe me.

The other card I made I finished too late to take a decent photograph...oh how I miss the lighter evenings, before we know it its going to be dark at 4pm and we will only have three hours of daylight to take decent photos in!!!

Talking of photos, I started my photography course today...I have learnt a lot already and
even got to have a play in photoshop, and not the cut down version either, Oh My God I need this program but I think I would have to sell my entire craft collection to pay for it and there is no way I am sacrificing my Penny Blacks or my Cricuts Carts.

I am off to clean up glitter...again...roll on summer!!!

This is gorgeous Esther, your photography looks great already to me (I just point and press the button and hope for the best). Hey, I have just started designing for Papercraft Inspirations too - we must ask Jenny if we can have a DT Xmas party :) Now wouldn't that be fun............
