I hope your day has gone well .. .. yet another weekend about to start.
Where are these weeks disappearing too?
Today .. .. and call me mad .. .. but as I don't have any Christmas weddings to complete .. .. .. I decided I would make ALL of my Christmas cards this year. Something I have never done before.
So this coming week is going to be dedicated to quick and simple Christmas cards that are nice and flat, full of love, and quick and simple to make (perhaps even simple enough to get Mr Heart involved LOL!! .. .. .. though I won't hold my breath as the kitchen decorating is still a never ending work in progress!
This is the first card I will be multiple making:
Image: ATArtDigital "Gnome for the Holidays" (still on offer) and the full set (with an added heart) as used on this gnome I used here
Sentiment: Computer Generated
Backing Paper: LOTV "Cloudy Evening Skies"
Crystal Glamour Dust
My Trusty Sewing Machine
I put everything into Craft Artist 2, shaping the bottom edge of the sky background before adding the gnomes. I was tempted to add die cut falling snowflakes and gems to the background but managed to convince myself that I would be on the slippery slope of making a "simple and quick" card too complicated.
Of course the only problem is if I make all my cards this year then I am making a rod for my own back as everyone will expect them every year going forward! But part of me feels a handmade Christmas card is my way of showing folk just how special they are .. .. and how happy I am that they are still here for me to send a card to.
Anyway, this is my first quick and easy card. Six more designs to go.
I won't start a discussion on whether we feel comfortable in having a COVID jab .. .. .. or shall I?
