Hello peeps,

I hope you are all keeping well.  This weeks desk has Christmas cards in progress.....yep, I admit I am having to make some!

I coloured tags with Dylusion spray inks and added a stamped image of an elf.  I added a strip of red ribbon (which came off a gift from earlier in the year!) and some fake pine and holly, securing it with my tiny attacher (I coloured the staples with red pro markers to represent berries).

I plan on mounting these on some homemade backing papers and edging with green foiling for a little seasonal bling.

At the back in the middle is a roll of leaves that look like a cross between holly or laurel....with a few red berries attached.  Either way, it is 2.75m long and cost £1!!  Bargain...from  a shop called Tiger....not sure if you get them outside London (think they are a european shop)...they have some amazing items there...all cheap but well made!

My 'Man Bites Dog' cards this week....Wife Stabs Rehab Nurse!!!!!
