I hope you are all keeping well and if you are snowed in keeping warm! My poor Daughter Claire has been through the mill this last week. Baby Isabella had her tonsils and adenoids removed and ear drums drained which then resulted in a secondary infection caught in hospital so Isabella has been so poorly. Resulting in us all having to travel miles each day to the hospital. Then hospital's being healthy places Claire and I caught a virus in there so I am now on the steroids again with asthma and poor Isabella is still unwell I am willing her to recover it is just so sad to see her suffering. So I really hope that you are all managing to step away from the virus!
Today I have made a Christmas card using one of the latest Magnolia released Merry Little Christmas Collection stamps. I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads stamped with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 140lb 300gsm hp paper. The background has been distressed with pumice stone and I have edged this and everything else on the card with walnut stain. The cuttlebug snowflakes I have painted with pewter crackle paint. The stickle glue is star dust. The leaves are a martha stewart punch.
The circles are nestablities and the borders are a Magnolia Lace die. I have used Cosmo Cricket rub ons for text and snowflakes. The ribbon is binding tape.
