Christmas WOYWW

So here it is, Merry Christmas.......and so on. A huge Merry Christmas to all WOYWWers, I hope you are all having a wonderful day wherever you are. Thanks to each and every one of you for all the fun friendship and inspiration throughout the last year, and an especially ginormous  thank you to our Wonderful Julia over at The Stamping Ground, for hosting this blog hop every week. Here's to you, Julia.
 Bought myself a little pressie the other day, I've been very taken with the scalloped edge cards I bought, but they only seem to come in white or cream. then I saw this Spellbinders Edgeabilities die.

Now I can cut my own! And I love the two inserts, I think the one looks very much like Broderie Anglais lacework.

 We had a nice night out on Saturday, our works do, then we all went up town. We don't usually do nightclubs, but I can cope with it once a year, lol.

Final pic of the day is Beloved Hubbys Christmas card:

I used the Stampendous 'Snowy Postcard' stamp onto a bauble shape cut with the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments set, and then cut the next size up for the white backing bauble. To get the black bauble for the layer, I drew around the outside of the die for the stamped bauble, and cut that out, as the two baubles you see are the two that follow in size, which gave too big a border. I also used the scallop die for the papers, and edge of the card. Oh, and the poinsettias, of course.
So thats my Christmas Day WOYWW, and I'm actually writing this at 1.00 in the morning. We went to my eldest son, Ants, last night for dinner, along with my youngest son Mikey & his girlfriend, KT. Its a bit of a Christmas tradition, Christmas Eve dinner with Ant & Beck & the kids. Anyway, came home, watched a bit of TV and went to bed. I found myself still wide awake an hour or so later,so here I am at the computer.

Aren't you lucky to get dies for your die cutter. It's a big expense, I've learned.

I enjoy throwing a lovely Christmas Eve dinner. It used to be a tradition for me, too. This year it's been replaced with breakfast, so I'm trying to stay ahead of my guests.

You have a wonderful card. Really impressive. Merry Christmas and happy WOYWW from #1.

Morti said...

Bright Blessings for the season, Shaz! I hope you a d yours have a wonderful year... Xxx thanks for stopping by today!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Gorgeous Christmas card! I agree that often from one Spellbinder to the next is too big of a layer so I like your fix of tracing around the die and cutting it out yourself Very brilliant. How sweet that you got your self a little present too. Those scallop border dies will be very useful!

Julia Dunnit said...

Yep, you are definitely a night bird...by trade and disposition I think! And get you doing a nightclub, am super impressed..net it was fun. Not sure I'd have been able to walk the next day, dancing makes me stiff these days!!
happy Christmas and thanks..for the beautiful card via Jan, and for finding me and making me a friend!

BJ said...

Like your selfie (present) and the scallops look great on your DH's card too. Happy Christmas BJ#4

Hi Shaz, Happy Christmas and WOYWW!

I agree about the windows, last thing I intended to do but it was Shaun who decided to do the windows and I was just doing the bits he missed! Looks worse clean with missed bits!
That is a great set, I bought what I thought was a set like that only to find they didn't cut and you needed another set to use with them and they are fiddly to keep together! Love the card, I had all these lovely stamped images ready and just didn't manage to get them onto cards, so everyone had to make do with what I had done and the kit! But if I manage to do what I didn't this year I should be able to get ahead and make some with them ready for next year - before November preferably!
