Back to the trees today.....lol!!! They are one of my favourite things for Christmas cards.
Here I have masked and chalked the background using a paper mask for the snow and peeloffs for the snowflakes which were then removed after chalking.
The tartan card is from Kanban and the trees are from a stamp set by Artemio.
Finished off with a little Stardust Stickles.
I had quite a nice day yesterday. Went and got my glasses sorted and while we were waiting for them we had a mooch round town. Mr Manic was in a very generous mood and bought me the giant red teapot I have had my eye on for some time plus a couple of kitchen things I needed. Then we sat on the market place in the sunshine and had a cappucino. I was very sad to see how the market has shrunk. I remember it being such a busy place on a Saturday morning and now there are hardly any stalls outside and lots of empty stalls in the market hall.
Being a glutton for punishment I tried not one but two new recipes yesterday. One I cobbled together myself which was a pork and apple meatloaf and the other from a farmers cookbook for a marrow, tomato and onion layer bake with a cheese topping.
Both were very nice and hubby was chuffed because the marrow was from our own garden.
Didn't get much time upstairs as Saturday night is now X Factor night so I am up there today. This morning I have had a bit of a mucking out session and now have a nice tidy desk to work on this afternoon.
Hope you're all having a nice weekend too.
Thanks for dropping by.
