Good day everyone ....

Its been a busy few weeks , i'm trying to get as much done for Christmas as i can . Last year was my first year in many that i wasnt working , and because of that i thought i had more time to do all that i had to do ..haha not so !! ..I ended up with far too much to do and the few weeks before Christmas was nothing but rushing and a bit of stress thrown in , so not this year if i can help it . I've managed to just about keep on top of things , i'm wrapping presents as i buy them , done the jars of pickled onions ( i've already had to taste them , Mmmm very nice lol ) . First week in December i'll do the pickled eggs and start soaking the fruit for the Christmas Puddings . The only thing i havent done and i must start like SOON is the Christmas cards !! ..I cannot make my mind up what i want to do with them !! . I've laid out most of the Christmas stamps on my work table to try and help me make my mind up ...has it helped ??!!!!!!!! NO lol !! .. Oh well i'm sure it will come to me but sooner rather than later i hope lol !!

Anyway the card i'm adding today is the one i've done for my daughter Rachel's birthday .. Hope you like it .. I stamped the image using a stamp from LILAC LEMON DESIGNS , they do some lovely stamps and they are very reasonable . I coloured the image using cosmic shimmer water colour paints and then picked out parts of the dress with glitter , cut the image out using spellbinders . Added some flowers and ribbon and made a box which i stamped and embossed
Hope you have enjoyed looking at my card ...please come back and visit again , i'm not quite regular in posting because of my illness interfering with my daily life but i love to visit other blogs and love people visiting mine , please leave a comment to let me know what you think and i'll pop along and visit yours as well .... Well its bye for now ..take care love and hugs Melita xxx
