We Have Lift Off!!!

A Sizzix Christmas tree die cut with the bottom trimmed off which has been stamped with a border stamp from the Holly Doodles Set and embossed in gold.
The leaves have been filled in with a dark green glitter gel pen and the berries have been embellished with Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red.
Paper is BG from the Dasher collection which has been layered over stamped text and also used to cover a piece of chipboard for the greeting plaque
The Dot & Stripe Christmas Set has been used here and the tag has been stamped and embossed onto red and green card then cut out and layered.
I then stamped again onto gold card using Stazon and cut out the star which I embossed in the Cuttlebug.
The background is a piece of gold card with a piece of BG paper from the Fruitcake collection attached with glue stick. This has also been embossed using the Cuttlebug.
Holly Doodles again........this time I have stamped the holly border onto white gloss card with Versamark ink and dried it with a heat gun. Once dry I have rubbed Adirondack ink over it.
I did the same with the stamped image from Stampendous but this time after applying the inks and buffing to remove any moisture I applied a coat of Versamark and a layer of Crystal embossing powder to glitter the image and then embellished with lilac crystals.
The greeting stamp is by DeNami

Well here's a bumper batch of cards to share today.
At last Picture It seems to have sorted itself out and I have been able to scan my cards.
I've been working with the Holly Doodles and Dot & Stripe Christmas sets from Tandastamps making more cards for classes at the shop. It seems already like I have been doing that forever but we have a long way to go before Christmas and we have quite a few ladies who come every week to the classes which means different cards every week so I like to have a good selection by me.
Still not feeling 100% me which is getting annoying now but at least I feel better than I did so that has to be good.
I know I said I was going to be good and not buy any more paper but I have been very bad and bought a stash of BG Dasher paper which arrived at the shop yesterday along with a couple of sheets from the Phoebe collection which I love. Also several new stamps in singles and sets which I am hoping to have time to play with over the weekend. Some nice coloured eyelets for my Cropadile and some big brads with slits in for tying ribbon through and a pack of MM flowers and brads in cream and black which are just yummy.
I am assuaging the guilt by telling myself that as I worked an extra day at the shop this week.....I flippin' well deserve!!!
Right I had better go and do something seeing as how I fell asleep as soon I got home from work and didn't wake up until 9pm.
Bye for now
