Christmas Snippets

Hi everyone. A quick post from me today as I have very sore eyes - maybe from sitting cutting out too many sheets of decoupage?

This is a very quick and CAS small card to use up a PB 'In a pear tree' image I'd stamped before christmas.  I stamped twice in two shades of green, masking off the bird and adding a sentiment from the same set. Then it was layered onto a snippet of silver mirri-card and to finish it off I added gems and pearls.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas challenge 'christmas anything goes'
and as I used 'snippets' I'm having another skip over to join in with Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge

I'm also heading over with another entry to Penny Black Saturday challenge where it's 'anything goes'

Thanks for popping by today and for all your lovely comments. I shall be round to visit later if I manage to get down from the treehouse in one piece (the Playground playmates know what I mean)

Decoupage is never kind on the eyes Andrea so may well be the reason.

Today's card has a real feel of elegant to it. See you in the treehouse later, but don't expect too much hooch, most of it got downed last night, not that I'm guilty of course.

That was a clever bit of masking going on there. Just had to go on line and check it out as you'd made me curious as to where the bird stood!Lol. I like it in the two shades of green too. Hugs Mrs A.

It was so nice to see your card today. I started working on a square Christmas card the other day and was wondering which type of paper I would frame it in, so I put it aside for a bit. You have pushed me into finishing it. Your card is gorgeous.

Thank you for coming to play.
