Here it's a grey and dismal Sunday, but I still went out for my walk through our little town and along the Rhine, and enjoyed it even if there was no sun to be seen anywhere.
I have been trying to make some Christmas cards, but am not feeling inspired in this direction just now.
This one has been made for the shabby chic challenge at FSC, and it is not quite as I would have liked it, but I tried. The edges of the background papers for the matting have been distressed and dipped in silver glitter. Note to self - it is not a good idea to use silver glitter when you are wearing black fleecy trousers....
The image has been stamped with a LaBlanche stamp using archival black and embossed with EP before being fussy cut. I left it black and white as it is a Victorian image, and contrasts well with the background. Santa is a vintage scrap, and I added some red fibres, tinsel and some silver roses for embellishments. The snow is a strip of lace.
The second card was a quick one, made with Graphics 45 paper matted onto gold. I think I will have to make more quick ones if any cards are going to leave the house this year!
I saw this ship on my walk today. It was really huge, much larger than most that travel up and down the Rhine. Can you see what is has loaded?
Here's a close up, there must be hundreds of cars on there!
And last but not least, my friends the gulls, who were, once again, all looking in the same direction.
This one evidently didn't mind posing for me:
Although he does look a bit indignant here!
Have a great day, whatever you are up to, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
