Bright Christmas

The end of another gruelling week – two down and four to go! Not quite as achy and broken this week as I was last but I’m certainly running on below empty right now and in addition to the blisters I seem to have many nicks and cuts on my hands and fingers. One of the things that has kept me going has been reading all the lovely comments that you have been leaving on my blog. It currently feels like I’m living on a different planet so when I am able to touch base with my blog, the comments make it feel like I’m back in the real world. Thank you πŸ™‚

Back with another postcard and very happy to have given this one the Xmas factor.


Naturally it had to be something I could whip up quickly and naturally I made a meal of it but I got there in the end. I’ve layered torn book pages on to the postcard then added Stormy Sky distress ink and Storm Cloud acrylic paint.


Pretend you didn’t spot where it says “FBI” on the book page!


The little trees are from Β Darkroom Door’s Stitched Christmas stamp set and I’ve stamped them on to some ofΒ my Kate Crane papers and cut them out. I’ve added a little shading and then topped it off with some printed words.


I am sharing this over at Sunday Stampers for this week’s Christmas/Winter challenge.


Thanks for buzzing by.

  2. Yeah, I am just back after a cooking weekend with the kids and now I got freshened up from your card, so nice and such a cool feeling, love your background Lisette, and your fir trees are wonderful!

    • Thank you! Oh my – a cooking weekend with children – welcome to my world πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Where did you go and what did you cook?

      • We just spent some time in the local waterpark resort and cooking well I was cooked all the time by the kids, my son and his friend. But today later we leave for a real time family together, hopefully cause my hubby was still called away as usual, but anyway me and my son will hit the road, roaming in Europe, cooler part, I enter Germany, then Austria, I’ll go to Hungary and on the way back Austria and probably Switzerland, we did it 4 years ago, was great. We have 10 days. I drive and we stop wherever we feel like and whenever we feel like πŸ˜‰

        • Oh that sounds such fun – I haven’t been to Hungary but my son was very taken with it. I have done Vienna, Cologne and Geneva all of which were amazing. Have an amazing time. Next trip make sure you find time for the UK too πŸ™‚

          • Oh I have to already, I can’t without fish’n chips you know wrapped in the daily, miss it, here it’s not the same πŸ™‚

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
