Happy Saturday Everyone!

How are you all?  I hope you have all had a good week and you are ready for the weekend.

Hello to my new follower "Chris Carter" - thank you for choosing to come and look at my little crafting space - I'm very flattered :o)

It's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and the theme this week is "Texture".  We have two generous sponsors this week - Quixotic Paperie and Bugaboo Stamps - so if you want to be in with a chance to win a prize - then what are you waiting for?  Get your entries in over at Totally Gorjuss as we want to see all your creations with "texture" in mind.  As always, check out what the awesome DT girls have made for your inspiration.

Here is the card I have made:

Another Christmas card off my list - still another 50 + to go :oS

For the "texture" on my card I have used an embossing folder on the larger red section and I have distressed all the edges of the paper.

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Whimsy - Little Cottage Cuties - Two Turtle Doves by Elisabeth Bell
Papers:  Kaisercraft - Just Believe - I also got the Sentiment and scalloped border from this paper pad too
Flowers:  Die-Namics - Mini Rolled Rose / Marianne Creatables - English Rose / Impression Obsession - Spiral Daisy
Foliage:  Cheery Lynn - Holly Flourish
Corners:  Die-namics - Photo Corners
Rhinestone Sparkler:  The Hobby House (these are just amazing!)

The image has been coloured with Copics:

I have outlined the image with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink - no air compressor this time ;o)
The papers have been edged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink

And that's it.  Thank you for popping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
