Saturday Dec 1st and here in NZ officially the first day of Summer, all we need to confirm this is for us to feel some heat from the sun.....not much happening at the moment!!!!!
Images are from Bo Bunny and Graphic 45 papers; my all time favourites.
Vintage has the feeling of bringing you back to your grandparent's home; and this does remind me of my Christmases in Wales where I grew up.
I love to combine elements to create dimension and texture; as you all know I love texture.
There is not much in that area here other than the embossed oval frame and my little hand made flowers.
I wanted to relate a Christmas feel; the warmth, the joy, the prickly Holly leaves which represent the crown of thorns that Jesus wore when he
was crucified, and the symbolic berries; the drops of blood that were shed.
And Father Christmas; well, someone has to deliver the presents to the children.
Otherwise there is no magic!
Please do not think I had one too many while stitching the card, my intention was to make it aimless and irregular, I wanted to create a feeling of movement.
This card is already winging it's way to a special person, someone who I know will appreciate the work involved and not dis-Card!
Remember you can click on the card for a close-up view.
I like to decorate the inside.
Have a great week.
