Get your skates on (and is what I should really be doing ) is the latest theme for the Christmas Club Girls to be showing on our cards. Chosen by Gwen ' Ice Skates or Winter Sports.' and I was spoilt for choice this time.
So why am I late yet again you ask ? Well You'll like my excuse this time it's a cracker and honestly I do not make these things up. Ok so yes we were having a lie in (watching Sunday Politics I hasten to add on the TV,) all riveting stuff when we got a phone call from the Window Cleaner (I kid you not) asking could he come and do the windows as he was in our vicinity doing the local Golf Course club house and could he also have a cup of coffee when he got here as the clubs cafeteria was shut!!
The Doc doesn't generally need an excuse to fire up the Tassimo coffee machine but it did mean the Window cleaner got his coffee before me!!
Finally got my coffee when a text came in to say 3 items had been substituted on my food delivery for later on today so further procrastination whilst I logged onto the PC to see what I was now getting instead.
I managed 5 cards from rooting through my stash, 3 using Ice Skates and 2 using Winter Sports so hope you like my choice Gwen. Though I made all these last night I needed the light coming in the lounge windows (now sparkly clean) this morning to get decent pictures of them.
Uses a Sassy Cheryl's pre coloured digi image called 'Smooth Move' from Paper Creator. The card blank was an old one found in my box and has the oval already cut from it so I just printed off the image and glued behind and then added a further panel inside to neaten. The flower is a Tonic embellishment. The strips of glitter are cut from cardstock and the glitter stickers from my stash.
Uses a Sassy Cheryl's pre coloured digi image called 'Figure Eight Style'. Th spotty digi paper is from Nitwits 'Believe Too' collection called Dots Red. The best wishes is a strip of Washi Tape and I found the green holly stickers in my stash.
Uses a freebie paper from several years ago from PaperCraft Inspirations called 'New York, New York, Winter Wonderland 'collection. The greeting was a gold sticker in my stash that I layered up on a scrap of red and white and given more height with strips of white card stock in lieu of 3D pads.
I go a bit of camera glare on the front so this is the inside of the card showing the sky line on the design paper along with the cute skating figures. I did finish all of the insides of the other cards too using up the scraps but haven't shown here otherwise I won't get this posted.
Uses a pre coloured digi image from The Paper Shelter called 'Sliding Bear' which i thought fitted the bill of Winter Sports. Gold edging and gold sticker sentiments from my stash. Snow flake Paper by LOTV.
Uses a freebie cardboard topper from years and years gone by. It came in a large packet of different animals and embellishments and I believe the packet had over 50 in it which I am still endeavouring to use up. Again the bear skiing fitted the winter sports theme. The Design paper was a magazine freebie and I just layered the bear up in the same way as I did the sentiment on card No3. Silver stars and silver sentiment from my stash.
Just time for another coffee and to see the other girls makes before the delivery man turns up with my weekly shop!
