I've been to the doctor's for some stronger antibiotics, as I've been in agony with an ear infection that actually got worse. I've only taken 2 of the new tablets and feel miles better already. There's so much to do, I can't afford to be ill now.
And I've had time to make another Christmas card for the facebook challenge, Sundays With Santa. The challenge is to use non-traditional colours. I feel I have to tell you that first or you'll wonder what on earth I've done:
I knew I wanted to use Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder colours together, as they make a fresh combination that I love using for Christmas. The two baubles are my new stamp set called Delightful Decorations. They are amazing. There's no other word for it! I know this may not be the best way to use them, but this just started out as a prototype card that worked in the end. I stamped the baubles and punched them out, but still didn't know where I was going with it (no sketch to follow). Everything was very straight up and down on the card. I decided to go and make a cup of tea while I considered it, got up, jogged the table and the lilac piece tilted like it is now, and suddenly, I liked it very much indeed! Isn't it amazing how the slightest adjustment can make a massive difference? I don't know if you can see, but there is silver string at the top of each bauble. I am so glad I was able to do that, and it's thanks to the lovely Jo for giving me the thread. Of course, it took 2 hours of searching to find it, but well worth it!
Now I'm off to try and get my head around a card for my son-in-law, which I have to make and post before we move. No pressure, then.
Thanks for dropping in today. Hope you're having a nice weekend. I'm spending time with the dog, who is worried we're going somewhere without her, poor thing.
