I'm back today to share another Christmas card- YAY!!!!!!! Card making has been quite slow lately, I have explained at the end of the post why.
A few weeks back I was going through my Christmas stamps and came across a few that I have not even touched yet. It's just like Christmas finding new stamps that you kind of completely forgotten about! LOL.
So here is Stamping Bella's Chickadeer. How cute is this image?
Again, I used Polychromos pencils and gamsol to colour. Once coloured I cut a some snowy hills using The Greetery Drifting die set. Love this set, it cuts and pierces.
Paper used is from Penny Black Holiday Trimmings. I was debating on whether or not to put a sentiment on the front, so played around with several and ended up using the sentiment from The Greetery called Sentiment Suite : Christmas Stamp Set and matching Sentiment Suite die set. The one good thing about the sentiment sets so far from The Greetery is that the die set she created matches her last 3 sentiment sets. I'm probably not explaining it correctly, but if you go the The Greetery or click on the link's above I created you will see what I mean.
For finishing touches I used some twine and glitter.
I hope I inspired you today, have yourself a fabulous day!
PS - on the health issue I have been having with my RA - Rheumatoid Arthiritis - well I went for my yearly checkup with my specialist today in London and the reason my feet have been so sore and my right wrist swollen and left hand knuckle issue for months is that my RA is doing a major flare up. I haven't had any bad flare ups in a couple of years. Normally my flare ups are very painful and only last 2 days, - the type I have is called Palindromic Rheumatism. My feet have been so sore and as of late they are so painful it even hurts to walk or to even rest my feet my bones in my feet are very painful, and my ankles throb terribly when I'm standing or moving. Here I thought it was Planters Fasciitis all along, had a pair of orthotics made for my running shoes and no relief, actually my feet were getting worse. I never experienced pain like this before in my feet so believed it was something other than RA. She sent me for xrays and blood work and will follow up with me once she gets the results back. Card making hasn't been very fruitful lately, with being in pain I have no desire to stamp. I still continue to dabble at it, but I really need to get going as I have a few orders plus my own Christmas cards to make and time is slipping away. Sorry for blabbling on and thanks for listening! :)
