More Christmas Cards
Hi all, well the heating is now getting put back on as the days are getting colder. Chloe starts Nursery on Wednesday - now the new chapter of my life begins. Apart from the year of being backwards and forwards I am looking forward to having about 2 hours to myself a day. However I also know I am going to miss her terribly but hopefully the days will go quick.
Well there is a garden centre in Sunderland not sure of the name think is it Lampton Garden Centre (it is where the old Lampton Lion Park was). They have a crafting section which I love to go everytime John wants to get a few flowers for the hanging basket. (dont have a garden so we are limited - thank goodness) well they had some gorgeous Forever Friends Christmas stamps and lucky me John got me both sets at a good price of £8.99 per pack and they are nice big stamps. So I have made a couple of cards and have a few stamp images ready to make some more.
The first card I have to show you I have made is A5 size. I have coloured my Forever Friends image using promarkers and the tree I stamped in black ink first and then went over again in green ink for the effect. For the first time I stamped wording directly onto the card.
