Let it snow and sparkle.

Good afternoon all, a little earlier post for me today, although I have a wee dog sat at my heels, who would rather I was taking her to the beach.  That's my next job.
Today I have a Christmas card for you, shock horror.  Are you sitting comfortably?

I have used one of my stencils from Imagination crafts together with some Diamond sparkle medium to create the outer frame in Kraft.  The sentiment stamp is white embossed and is by the lovely ladies at Unity Stamps.  I have created a white frame to separate both craft layers, then finally added a "job lot" of pearls.  I started off just placing a few random pearls but I've kept going, even looking at it now I am thinking, oh I could get another one or two on.  Step away from the pearls!

I think I am going to like this stencilling idea!
Though I might refrain from as many pearls next time.
This is my colour combination over at The Great scheme of things this week, kraft and white, why not pop over and join us?

I hope you have had a good day so far?
I've had a busy shift at work, time now to walk the dog and then start the tea.  I think this evening I might relax or crochet.  We were planning on going to visit 007 but I might just leave it till the weekend.  Can you believe it is Friday again tomorrow?  Where does the week go?  I better go and dig out an oldie to share with you tomorrow.
Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Hi Erika, Well you've made a fantastic card with your glitter paste and stencil. It really works well with the kraft and white too. Something I'd not have thought of.

I've had a funny sort of day. The plan had been to craft all day today but I seem to have lost my mojo and spent most of the day poodling around doing odd jobs but nothing in particular I've got to look out an oldie too. Have a good evening. Barbxx
