Shabby Chic Holiday

Hello friends,

This will be my last post before Christmas and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your visits during 2014. I wish you all happy holidays and a Merry Christmas. Enjoy this very special and festive time with your family and loved ones.

I have another pink Christmas card I put together and want to share with you. Fortunately it is hand delivered and will still be in time. Once again I used the lovely inspirational picture at The Shabby Tea Room  to create this last-minute card. I love the soft pastel pink, aqua, silver and ivory and added  lots of glitter and silver mesh to bling it up for a shabby Christmas feel. I stamped and wet embossed the Christmas tree with silver , added some pearls, silver bling and roses and then layered the stamped image on a beautiful die cut from Wild Rose Studio. Two silver bells, aqua wax cord , a silver star and pink heart complete the card. The sentiment die cut is from Spellbinders.

Challenges:

    Hallo, Amelia, ek moet darem net gou inloer om hallo te se en om vir jou ‘n wonderlike 2015 toe te wens!!!! Ek weet nie waar Desember heen is nie – ek het so baie goed beplan om gedurende Desember te doen en voor ek besef Desember is op ons, was ons oppad Kaap toe en ek het nie by een van my blogvriende uitgekom om darem Geseende Kersfees te se nie!!! Ek glo dat julle ‘n geseende tyd gehad het en die vakansie geniet het!!! Ek hoop ook dat 2015 vir jou ‘n besondere jaar vol hoogtepunte gaan wees!!! Ek sien uit om al jou werk in die nuwe jaar te geniet!!!
    Jou kerskaarjie is so pragtig – ek’s mal oor die pragtige kersboompie wat so lieflik versier is met al die rosies en fyn detail!!! Die pienk en blou is so mooi en ek hou van die skattige klokkies!! Ek weet sommer die person wat hierdie spesiale kaartjie ontvang het, het al jou moeite baie waardeer!!!
    Baie groete en ‘n lekker Dinsdag vir jou!!!
