MAWTT Challenge 75 - A card for someone special

Hi Everyone

Sorry it is a very quick post from me today. Mum is still in hospital and having many tests for which we are awaiting results, so I haven't had much time for making and blogging this week.

But I did manage to make a 'quick' card for Lisa's challenge over at MAWTT, which is to make a card for some-one special. So mine is a Christmas card for my Grandaughters.

I experimented with using embossing powder on a print straight from the computer. It worked, but next time I will choose my fonts, sizes and shapes a bit better.

I also tried to get an angle to show you the sparkly bits - you can see some of it here.

The sponsor this week is Whimise Doodles who make the sweetest little doodles about. They have their store where new images are released on the 5th of the month. Every Friday there is a featured image/s with 10% discount off them. Tuesday is technique day and there is often a tutorial.

We all received an image to play with and these will be launched on the 5th December.

I hope your week is going well and your preparations for Christmas.

Take care.
