Dashing through the camera files...

Hope you are all having a nice Christmas. I realise it’s over in America but over here we keep Christmas going right into the New Year, don’t we? We have a day off from entertaining/visiting today, which is good as hubby has a stinking cold/hacking cough so could do with a break.

And it's snowed today! Big juicy flakes, leaving about half an inch on the ground... on top of the two inches we had last week... which are resting, in places, on the big piles of snow from the first big snowfall. So we haven't been without snow now since the end of November - pretty unheard of for us! 

I’ve just found this Christmas card on my camera. Sorry it’s a bit late but you can file it for next year perhaps! The picture is a bit ropey but it’s so hard to get decent pix when it’s dark all the time!

So, just in case you can’t tell, the colour combo is River Rock, Cherry Cobbler and Elegant Eggplant, with Dasher stamped onto Very Vanilla.

You also probably can’t see that there’s glitter – yes, glitter! – on the antlers, as well as a tiny bit of bling; a silver rhinestone on one of the snowflakes. Less is more where bling is concerned... for me, at least!

  1. Hi Helen
    Love this card love it.....


  2. There you go again you see with the serene snowflakes and cherry cobbler! You camera must be dodgy though as I would have eaten my hat if Dasher was stamped on very vanilla.... it looks like very orange (which doesn't exist). Nevertheless, am loving it for next years dasher projects!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
