Haven't really been home very much this past week or two.
Trying to get my husband settled in the aged care facility.
Everyone in the place is so helpful and friendly
but being so new it is having teething problems.

So I am running very late again with my DT card for
So without more ado here it is hurriedly made last night.

I don't think I have ever made this LOTV image before and he is rather cute.
This has to be a boy angel don't you agree?
Coloured with copics and the stars were coloured with a gold gel pen.
The DP is by Maja Design covered with gold snowflakes.
The rhinestones are by Papermania.  I love the sparkle of these
and they colour so easily too.

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

Bokeh background

I have been watching all those lovely tutorials on 
U Tube on this sort of background and decided
it looked my sort of thing.
So I thought I would try it out as I needed a card
for one of the men in my life.

Sorry about the terrible photo it does look better IRL.
I started with Bundled sage, Shabby shutters, and Mowed lawn.
The circles were sponged with Brilliance Moonlight white
and I did some with Shabby shutters as well as stamping the 30. 
You do need to let the background dry before you start on the circles
as I found out the hard way despite being warned.
The feather is real dropped in passing by the Pink and Grey Galahs
that visit the park behind us.
It was just so perfect that I felt I had to use it.
Do hope no 3 grandson likes his card.

Am entering this in:

Merry Santa

A very quick post today as I am late, late, late.
and here it is.

I chose this merry looking Santa because I thought it would make 
an excellent child's card.
So I have gone to town with the glitter and glitz.
No that is not glitter on his beard it is the frosty night.
Hopefully in the next few weeks life will settled down into a 
more relaxed pattern and I will be able to get back to crafting again.
In the meantime it is an emotional roller coaster.
Life wasn't meant to be easy was it?

Thanks for dropping in.
