Foiled sentiments…

Hi everyone, I have a pretty simple Christmas card to share with you all, but what I’m most excited about is the foiled sentiment I have done. So Ive purchased a laser printer, some foils and I already have a cheap laminator to use and…. away I go, foiling all my pc printed sentiments, I love the look of this foiling and will be doing a lot more. I like the fact I can foil whatever style font I have, it gives a more professional look to a card (I think).
Other items used are…
Sue Wilson pierced squares
Crealies book shape dies
snowflake embossing folder
silver mirror card
flowers

Happy Birthday Mom……

Hi everyone, not a card today but a picture frame I did. The photo is my lovely Mom who’s birthday it is today. We lost her last year to cancer. She would have been 67 today and not a day goes by when I don’t think of her.
The frame is MDF a pack of 2 from Creative Expressions, they are great to decorate to your own taste.
I’ll be back on Monday with my CE post, its Christmas for DT posts for November. xx
