Toasty Chestnuts

Hello.  Welcome.  They say today could be the warmest day in May since they started recording.  I don't think we are going to break records where we are, but it's toasty here!!  I had to re-ink my archival, and most of my glues were stubbonly not wanting to come out of their tubes/bottles, except for the UHU, which positively galloped out of the tube.  It's amazing how frisky solvent based products get when the craft room is too warm to be comfortable LOL.  So I decided to make a christmas card!! Well, that white hammered card always reminds me of snow........

I was inspired by Chriss' card over at Muse Christmas Visions, and it also reminded me of the YNS sketch.  I used Stamplorations Poinsettia Row, stamped, coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut.  Then I used some chrismas ribbon (God Jul is Norwegian for Merry Christmas) and a Papirdesign die for the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment once from red card and twice from black, layered and added some red glitter glue.  I also added some gold glitter glue to the center of the flowers. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
