Chock full of Cheer....

What a miserable dark and wet and windy day its been today....and I left it a bit to take a photo of my card that I made today its not easy taking a photo of a mainly white card at the best of times.

Stampin UP 'Chock full of Cheer' was the stamp set we were given at our Stampin Extravaganza day on Saturday and although I should have been doing the ironing today I just wanted to have little play!
Stamped the bauble and popped it onto a S.U embossing folder called Holiday Frame which I then cut out with a nestie and layered it up.  I used Creative Expressions 'Tied Together'  embossing folder for the background.
The words 'Noel' are cut from the 'SU Cheerful Christmas roller border.

Wont be crafting again now until next Sunday as I have an Angels outfit to make for my granddaughter who is an angel in her school nativity play and we are also baby sitting for two days....but the Stampin Up order should be here in the next couple of days so more new goodies to play with next week....

It's lovely, Anne, and so much better than getting the ironing done, he hee.

good luck with the angel costume - I'm sure yours will be better than the ones I remember from school, which consisted of a white sheet sewn into a cape, with a circle of tinsel on our heads. Don't think we even had wings either. Times were hard LOL.

Carole of Brum said...

PS meant to say how great the embossing looks, a fab background for the bauble.
