urgh, I am having one of those weeks.....

Well I am having one of those weeks this week where I feel like I can't do anything right, I am sure I am not the only one who has days like that but I feel low and sad.... oh well.

Anyway, this is the card I made for my friends at work ( at least I hope they are my friends...told you I was having a bad few days!!)

I wanted to make some mini cards this year, I think they are cute!!

I got some cute little glittery christmas tree's in the sale last year and wanted to incorporate them into the design. I popped a few blobs of gold glitter glue on them for baubles and stuck them onto little vellum sqares cut at 4cm square, I wanted them to look cute when the card was open too and thought the vellum would give them a bit of a lift!

I used the New Arrival cart and cut this gorgeous little stitched card with a scalloped edge on it at 5". I sewed some gold metallic thread into the stitch holes to give it a little christmas bling and doodled some dots on the scallops.

I used my computer to write ' Have yourself a merry little Christmas!!'on the front. I mounted the sentiment on foam dots but you can't really tell in the picture! I really had a hard time taking the photo, the weater here is so gloomy and we have the lights on, in the end I had to beg hubby to take the picture with his camera!!!! he is better than me at pictures anyway!!

I hope I havea better week next week....fingers crossed.....
