Seasons greetings

I was in the zone the other night, making Christmas cards and listening to a good audio book. I was going to make one card for a DT post later this week but I ended up making three. For this I used a couple of Hero Arts stamps and the deer head cut file I created for Pretty Crafty Stuff. When I made it I saw it in my head all gold embossed and 3d mounted with threads behind. I love the deer head trend. I also made a raindeer, a fox and a bunny to keep him company. 

Anyways, I wanted to frame him så I stamped a background from Hero Arts and just masked the middle of the card using a PostIt. It's very pretty this card, don't you think? I never get my gold thread as perfectly nested as other people do, mine looks all messy and uneven. But I keep trying. One day I'll learn. 

Thanks for stopping by! There will be more Christmas in the blog soon. Promise! And I don't even send out Christmas cards, more than to the closest family. But I'm in a Cristmas-y mood lately.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
