I can't believe it's already September. For me this means the end of one thing and start of the other. Back to school, back to work, back to the gymming regime, coming back home later in the darker afternoons and also less time for hobbies. In other words - back to crafting after hours. Is it me or does it really feel a bit nippy outdoor as if autumn was lurking round the corner. There is something invisible in the wind, in the air and in the fact that we start the "-ember" months that brings that longing for long sunny days and holiday time. Even now, as I'm writing this to you, I'm sat on the sofa, wrapped in blanket with hot cuppa next to me. Getting cold aready! ;)
Anyway, more Christmas cards with kiddies dressed warmly for winter ;) This time I experimented with blues and purples. It's a bit unusual Christmas combination but sometimes I like to diverge from the traditional take. I used the same set of stamps as previously.
Some embellishing bits and bobs - die cuts, gems, stick-on snowflakes, all for the wintry frosty look :)
And how a bit of layering and texture? The card below was made using a card sketch I found ages ago on the web. I also used on this card my favourite Sizzix embossing folder the texture of which reminds a jumper :)
I really enjoyed making these :) Now back to my festive stitching. This lazy Sunday afternoon just seems so perfect for it.
Have a good Sunday evening x x
