I'm back - with another Christmas card

Phew, it's lovely to be back with a fully working computer again. I'm having to get used to a lot of changes though, as some apps have had to be removed, so bear with me if my photos don't look very polished, I have a whole new editing system to get used to.


Anyway, first up is this week's second Christmas card. For this, I have used a bordered paper from an old Hot Off The Press pad with a scrap of toning plain paper, and a Craftwork Cards printed greeting. I've kept it all pretty CAS in order to show off the star of the piece, this fab glittering bauble which was a gift tag on one of the presents I received last Christmas. I couldn't possibly just tear it off and throw it away, could I? To tie it in with the background, I have decorated the bauble with some red vinyl peel offs.

great idea to save the bauble tag - it's even more lovely in its second life, your treatment sets it off perfectly!
