DCM Little Extra-Christmas Tree

Posted by manicstamper on October 19, 2007

As usual the girls at Daring Card Makers came up with the right dare when I needed a push to make a certain card.
I have been thinking about this card for ages and never got around to doing anything about it.
The stamping has been done with the Holly Doodles set from Tandastamps
Well I am still doing my prep work for Stockport and Totnes. This time I am making all the templates in advance which is taking quite some doing but I think it will help things to run very smoothly and it means the ladies get to take them home too.
As much as I am looking forward to doing both venues I am also looking forward to getting back and tidying up my room ready for all the new goodies I shall buy when I go the NEC next month.
I haven’t been for a couple of years except to the trade show for the shop and I have the hugest list of stuff I want to buy.
I wouldn’t have even thought of going but DD is insisting on taking me to look for my Christmas present……..she’s got awful bossy all of a sudden….lol!!! I think she has an ulterior motive though as she now does beading and jewellery making. It’s going to be fun to see who spends the most money.
I had a question posted in a comment on the Santa card with the tags in an envelope.
Yes it was a template I used for the envelope which I think was one I bought from Lakeland Limited last Christmas although I am not 100% sure on that as it may also have been one from a set of Anna Griffin templates I have. If it’s any help though the finished envelope is approximately three inches square after folding.
I am sooooo loving these cold frosty mornings and being able to wear jumpers and long sleeved t shirts without feeling like I am going to spontaneously combust. Not liking the cold feet much though. I need some new Pods and until I have time to go buy some I am still wearing my Crocs which are a tad draughty…!!!
I’m up playing catch up with myself as although I had a good night’s sleep on Wednesday I felt shattered when I got home from work and slept from 6pm to 10pm.
I work better though when everyone else is asleep so I am off to make a few cards ready for workshops with some new stamps I have seeing as how I am wide awake.
Catch you later
