50th post already...

Good morning, I can't believe that this is already our 50th post on the blog! We only started it last month and to be honest it only seems like yesterday! the days are just whizzing by lol. But we are really enjoying sharing our ramblings with you so hope someone is enjoying reading them!!!!

I'm really trying to get in the Christmas mood so we went ahead and put the tree and trimmings up yesterday.

I think it looks really nice, we have tried to stay with the new colours of the room, teal, grey and black, but you can't help the odd bit of red creeping in lol.

Here's another Christmas card today.

This is a 5x5 ivory card blank with a piece of white card run through a dotty embossing folder to cover the front. I then took four small squares of ivory card and put a Smirk Christmas brad through each of them to attach them to the card.

I found some co-ordinating Christmas ribbon that I had left from last year and tied this in a bow on the edge. Then I added a couple of silver corner peel-offs to the other side and finished it by stamping a Merry Christmas sentiment on to another small piece of ivory card and sticking to the top with adhesive pads. A few dots of glitter glue here and there finished it off nicely. What do you think?
