That's everything ready for Christmas..

Everything is ready and waiting for Christmas day and I have a whole afternoon to myself today. This morning my House Mouse stuff arrived (excellent delivery from the Joanna Sheen website - ordered Wed night and delivered this morning). But I am going to finish off a few other projects room is littered with half finished stuff. 

So, in the spirit of finishing projects, I have finished the cards from one of the Gorjuss kit I got and here they are. Sorry about the quality of photo - the sun is so bright this morning (not complaining).

For this one I used a flourish stamp and burgundy ink to decorate the backing paper and a few jewels just to decorate:

This next one is the same image but decorated slightly differently. Used a flourish stamp and burgundy ink to stamp the top of the backing paper and then used gold liquid pearls to highlight parts of the flourish etc.

This one is my favourite I think - again used a flourish stamp with charcoal ink on the background paper with three black gems and three white ones at the bottom:

This is the last one and yes you guessed it, used the flourish stamp with green ink (backing paper is green but somehow this is lost in the photo). Added a heart and gems to finish:

Off now to crank up the Cameo and work on my shadow box. Have a good weekend everyone and thanks for visiting x
