I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and maybe got a bit of crafting done?
My weekend was full of tomatoes, with a movie squeezed in as well, sadly I had no time for crafting.
I am halfway through turning 3 bushels of roma tomatoes into jarred tomato sauce, I will finish them within the next couple of days. September is always busy for me with canning added into my regular routine, yes it is a lot of work, but so worth it in the end as nothing tastes better than homemade tomato sauce, salsa, frozen corn, strawberry jam…
Do you like scary movies???? I am generally not a fan of scary movies BUT when it comes to my all time favourite author Stephen King, you bet I am going to go, and maybe cover my eyes when it gets really scary, ha-ha-ha!!!We all went as a family (except Damon as he had a previous engagement) as my crew loves scary movies, I used to be able to handle them, but with the new special effects I find them a bit intense, that and my overactive imagination…..
Needless to say we LOVED the movie, we all jumped during it (I may have even let out a little scream!!) and can not wait to see the second one!!!
Okay, enough about my weekend, on to today’s card.Black and white is not your normal Christmas colours, but I must say, I really do love the look!!
I combined the Merry Little Christmas DSP with the 7/8″ Striped Ribbon, the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set, and the Everyday Label Punch, all from page 12 of the Holiday Catalogue. I added some Sliver Foil Sheets and some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon from the Annual Catalogue, some Basic Black and Whisper White Cardstock, and there you have my elegant Christmas card.
