Hi there :)
Today I´d like to show you a criss cross card I made using some very cute and usable stamps from Papilio :) Lida has been baking some christmascookies for us. Isn´t she the cutest thing standing ready with the rolling pin in her hands! She reminds me of my little girl, always wanting to bake something (doesn´t really matter what - just about anything will do ;) and when we are getting busy she get´s that same "exited but patiently waiting for us to start look" in her eyes.
After making some non traditional looking christmas cards I felt like making a traditional one again. So I started painting Lida in red and brown and after that I picked out some matching patterned papers. I usually do it the other way around but it worked out fine this time :) Those of you who know me a bit better also know red isn´t my fav colour to craft with but I love these new red "A merry little christmas" papers from Magnolia. I still struggled a bit with the embellies. Don´t have so much to pick from there since I hardly ever craft with red...I added some snow here and there using my puffy white pen. Inside the card I used some of the stamps from the little pack Seven sorts of cookies. Also very usuable! I have a feeling I´ll use it on lot´s of the x-mas cards this year. :)
I´d like to finish off today´s posting with thanking all of my new and "old" followers for wanting to participate in my blog candy! Far more peps than I ever expected and I´m so grateful for all of your lovely comments about my work ♥.
Thank´s for taking a look today!
