It is late evening on Christmas Day for me and can you believe I have made a card LOL! Everyone is winding down and I thought 'why not' that is how I unwind - I am sitting in the dining room and the kids are just finishing off watching Christmas movies - so I am kind of there!
I used a SU image of Gum Blossom that I have had sittng there for ages - it has been coloured with a Blender Pen and Chalks and then has Kindy Glitz added lightly to the leaves! The right edge has been torn and then the image layered onto white CS and then Black CS. This has been layered into the embossed red argyle and a smaller panel of white embossing with the Divine Swirls folder. I have added this little House Mouse who is on his way to the Tuesday TeaParty at the Rodent House - as you can see he is bringing a touch of 'Australiana' with him - which explains why we are late - CUSTOMS was not easy to get through - LOL!! The House Mouse has been popped up on dimensionals.
The sentiment circle has popped up on dimensionals and black gems added as a final touch! Instead of adding the strip of ribbon across the lower part of the card, I used faux stitching and then decided to carry it all of the way around the edge of the card.
Thank you for looking and for your encouraging comments - you always make my day! For some of you, your Christmas Day is just beginning - enjoy and make the most of the moments - for some of us it is quickly coming to an end - and already we have precious memories. Merry CHRISTmas to you all! God bless you! You can find me and more on my Blog: http://lovelylindascraftcentral.blogspot.com/

Your card is beautiful but I really enjoyed reading your commentary. I use card making as a get away. It brings me comfort and gratification to create something pretty to share. So many seem to appreciate this. Your Christmas wish for us is much appreciated too.
