Colorful Christmas Card & Mark Twain Digital Stamps

Christmas at Harrods

I have just watch this absolutely vibrant and colorful Christmas Card at Jane `s blog from my Dt, , ansd I loved it , so i am sharing with you directly from her blog:

It's such a wet, dreary Saturday that I thought I would cheer everyone up by sharing my photos from my recent Harrods trip. My regular readers will know that every year my Mum and I make our annual trip to Harrods in London to see the Christmas displays and decorations.
Harrods is my favourite shop in the world!

Even from the outside it is the most impressive building.

And inside is just another world. Over the last few years millions of pounds have been spent restoring the interior. The work is nearly complete and there is a feeling of luxury everywhere.This is just one of the escalators

As always the Christmas department never disappoints.

We enjoyed seeing all the different themes and yes I came away with a new decoration for my tree. This year I was really taken by these sweet angels. My dear Mum bought me one.

Harrods still has a wonderful Santa's grotto and I am hoping in a few years time I will be taking my grandbaby there to meet Father's all so exciting that I will be able to go back to seeing Christmas through a young child's eyes.

I had some studio time today decided to do some Design team GD work for Ignacio. I thought my card needed to be a "vintage"Christmas card so I used one of my Nicecrane designs . Do pop over to the blog there are always lovely projects on show by our Design Team and often freebies too. This image is from the Happy Christmas sheet by Bowley which is available here. This is such a gorgeous sheet and I have plans for using other images from it. Here is my vintage childhood Christmas card

Now enjoy the incredible  Christmas Card by Jane

Just look at this gorgeous image

  I had fun adding one of my hand made "word" trees to which I added lots of Cheery Lynn die cut snowflakes and stickles glitter. The fab snowman is a Sizzix fellow. The card base was made using my Go Create frilly die which I bought from the Hobby House with my challenge winnings voucher in the autumn. The snowflake borders are Joy Craft and the sentiment is also Cheery Lynn. I added some distress inks to the papers and the sentiment to give them a vintage feel. The snow under the snowflake is an ancient tub of snowtex I found in my studio and it is still in perfect condition.

As you can see I am not making this for a boy or a girl as I have used pink and blue!

And here is the cute sheet used by Jane

Twine for Alphabet Challenge (Mark Twain)

My friend Avril sent me this funny and cute card working with my "rtrtrtrerey" so here is it. Its time for another letter in the Alphabet and this time it's 'T' and Team B's turn and Mari has chosen 'Twine'
I decided to make my own twine from 2 bits of frayed burlap, I died one piece with Aged Mahogany and then when dry, twisted them together, now what to do with them.

A short while ago the lovely Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs very kindly gave me some Mark Twain images to 'play with', and when I saw this sentiment (Peerless Designs) at the weekend, I knew how I was going to use it. My image is coloured with Distress Markers and inks. The corrugated cardboard gave a lovely surprise when I started to rip it and found it was double core, so apart from a light distressing with some Tumbled ~Glass DI, that was it.

I would be lovely to see you join us, and if you need any inspiration for using Twine, them  please pop over to the main blog, as my very clever teamies have some lovely creations to show.
