Ah bliss - the jelly household is in unusual quiet today. Hubby has gone to work and en route he deployed the boys at his Mum's for the day as I have a class this afternoon. Done so much already - cleaning, washing, tidying, prepped for class, made a card for this weeks challenge over at Less is More! This week Chrissie and Mandi want us to use colours from our nations flag. I opeted for the Union Jack rather than St Georges flag and erm, made a Christmas card:
Apologies for my photo, normally I'd use my light box in the conservatoire but this morning is has several wasps buzzing around annoyed that they've been in there all night so I darted outside and had to be so quick as it's just started spitting with rain! It's a 5" square card using Real Red, Whisper White and Pacific Point card and inks. The sentiment is from the Sparkly and Bright set and I coloured the stamp with Markers before stamping. The penguin is from Every Little Bit and I stamped him three times using the Stamp-ma-jig to get them in place. The hat is made up from elements from the hostess level three set Playful Pieces. I added a little detail to the penguins using Markers added a couple of Rhinestone Gems then used a two way glue pen to draw in some snow and sprinked it with Dazzling Diamonds. Quite an easy card to mass produce I think for me this year.
Yesterday Mr UPS delivered some Stampin' Up! goodies for some of my customers and I always spend ages afterwards folding up the brown packing paper to either recycle or give to Zac's school. The boys decided they wanted to help and had a good 45 minutes running around the living room squeeling and giggling whilst they 'helped'.
Right - next job, off to the Post Office!
