Lotv, Holy light

Hi, all you lovely crafters, been a long time, but boy has it been a hectic couple of week!! First of all my computer broke nd when i took it to a computer shop, they told me it was the mother board, the main brain of the computer, so would cost me in excess of £200, and that i'd be better off buying a new one, so thats what i did. Then some thieving little toerags decided to rob my outbuilding outside in which i had that day put a lot of christmas presents in so my daughter couldnt see them, they took them all, along with power tools, pressure washer and a hoover, i also had a box of my crafting items!! i am absolutely devasted as i put them in there out of way with decorating, it was only a small percentage of my stash, some magnolia stamps, paper pads and a couple of dies luckily, but couldnt understand why they would take them, but as my other half said with it being a cardboard box what was taped up they wont have known what was in it.... you cant have anything!!

Anyway enough of my moaning .. lol, here is, yes you guessed it, another shadow box card, but this time it is a christmas card.

                           I have used a gorgeous christmas stamp from lili of the valley,

                                       which i have coloured up with copics.        

                        I have used the gorgeous paper from first edition- silent night paper pad,

                                                          love these muted colours.
                        I have made the poinsetta and the tree using marianne design dies
                                             and the snowflake border is a tim holtz die.

                         Here is a close up of the poinsetta and the lovely beaded sprays,                                                                                    which are from live and love crafts                                                                                     

                    I embossed the snow flakes with the shabby white embossing enamel,                                                     i love this stuff!! and added small ivory pearls to the trees  

                    Well thats all from me, be back soon with some more cards..
