Christnas Post

Hi there everyone

Well, you wouldn't believe the problems I had uploading this card to show you!  Some of my regular followers may remember that a while ago I had to upload a card side ways on, as for some reason Google kept turning it around?  Anyway, the same thing happened with this one, and where previously I had resolved the problem by uploading from Picasa, even Picasa wouldn't play ball this time, and every time I tried, it froze my computer!  I tried several times, and oh boy was I getting cross!!!  I eventually decided to remove Picasa from my computer altogether, so if anyone else has experienced this problem I would love to hear about it, and if they've been able to resolve it.

Anyway, now that I've finally got it uploaded so that you can see it without getting a crick in your neck, I guess I'd better tell you a bit about how I made it.  The image is of course from LOTV, and was coloured with Copics.   The background paper is from the Papermania 'Home for Christmas' pad again, and because it's really busy I decided to keep the rest of the card fairly simple, just added a little bit of embossed red card, some lace and a bit of ribbon.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from 'Cats Life Press'.  For the ground I used some of that stuff that comes in a pen and you heat it up to make it puffy like real snow - sorry, I'm having a blond moment and can't remember what it's called, lol, while it was still wet I sprinkled it with Glamour Dust, and was quite pleased with the finished result.  I hope you like it too.

Have a great weekend, and I hope to be back with another card soon.
