Are the kids all in bed? Are the presents all wrapped and built? I sure hope so - not long to go now. I'm busy chilling with a bottle of Pear Bulmers, watching Hairspray. After a not so traumatic day at work it feels nice to have my feet up and a few days off from stuff!

I was worried I wouldn't have a card to share with ya tonight, but no sweat, I'll show you a recent Christmas commission I had, using one of my most used stamps this season! LOTV. Under the Mistletoe.

This was an order from a beautiful lady who makes jewellery. Check out her FB page at Floating Vintage Designs, tell her I sent ya though! ;) She got wed earlier this month, so she wanted a Christmas card to celebrate her and her new husbands first Christmas together. Cute, right? I made something similar a couplea weeks back with a Bentley Bear image.

Anywho, of course I had to use another slice of paper from Basic Grey - Jovial collection as my backdrop. :) I coloured the image to match, the lady loves the colour green so I tried to add a lot of that to the image without going too overboard.

I typed the sentiment for the inside and outside of my card in Word and printed it out. I used a Fancy Labels die from Spellbinders for the sentiment on the front. I distressed it with some Frayed Burlap DI and added a few Liquid Pearls, which I also dotted around the rest of the card.

Here is a shot of the inside of the card. I finished the sentiment "..on our First Christmas together". Awhhh man. So cute. :) I cut the naturals ivory panel using a curved rectangles nestie and distressed and doodled the lot. :)

Don't wanna keep you guys for too long - that's if there is even anyone out there reading this. HA! Christmas Eve and all that. Stuff yourselves silly and enjoy the time with yours tomorrow! :)
