Sorry-Christmas Again!!!

Sorry for the lack of blog posts the last couple of days. The heat is making me cranky and all out of whack with myself. I just can't concentrate on anything much at all except trying to cool down.........even resorting to wearing wet t shirts........Ooooo'er Mrs!!!...............LOL.
Despite the heat the ladies in my two classes today have been elbow deep in Christmas cards and the card above is one we made with the Holly Doodles stamp set I designed for TandaStamps last year.
The card design is new and I have used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to emboss onto Poinsettia Coredinations cardstock which has then been lightly sanded.
The holly image has been stamped and embossed onto a piece of the same card and then again onto a piece of designer paper from Making Memories. We cut out those leaves and added them over the other image on foam pads. A bit of matting and layering with a squeeze or two of stickles and the job was done.
Just want to say a huge THANK YOU to the lovely Judith who had read about my struggle with the heat and came to the class armed with a Sheila Cooling package of a face spritz, a 4711 Ice cooling stick and a pulse point lavender gel. I was really touched. Judith you are a star!!!

Well I have to get back to work now. I need to design a couple of new cards with the Bondaweb technique ready for a class on Thursday. Once that is done I have three days off and hopefully will spend the weekend stamping and getting messy now that I am getting more comfortable in my workroom. I am still a very untidy crafter and I don't suppose that will ever change so most days I have to clear my work table before I can even think about doing!!! Trying to train myself to be better but you know what they say about teaching old dogs new tricks....ha ha ha!!!

Thanks for dropping by.
