Pic’N’Mix Christmas & Bruises!

November 25, 2014 at 11:50 am 8 comments


Hi! How are you all?

I’m over on Make The Day Special Stamp Store today- sharing this card- a Christmas card using mostly non-Christmas supplies.

The dies for ‘joy’ are Louie’s ABC’s which are perfect

and the paper is ‘Snow Days’ by Lawn Fawn

I have used a whole bunch of other supplies from Lawn Fawn- Forest Border die, Critters in the Snow (snowflakes), Year Four (the musical notes).

It’s a quickie post as I’m trying to finish some work. I’m also recovering from hurting myself twice in one day!

The first? Getting into the shower to try and fix a problem. The bottom of the bath was wet as someone had already been in there.

One foot in, one leg outside the bath. One foot went left, I banged myself against the bath and did a fairly inelegant split. I have a cracking bruise to show for it.

Fast forward to the evening. I was helping Will with some maths homework on the computer.

One of the chairs was slightly broken by the kids. I wasn’t looking when I chose a chair to sit on.

You can tell what’s about to come next can’t you…

Crack, split, and down I went.

I was shocked more than hurt.

Will was really upset- and worried.

So two bruises in one day.


Well, see you tomorrow with a fun bit of stencilling,

    Gorgeous card Keren, I love the way you cut the word ‘joy’ into the card and put the paper behind. I hope your bruises get better soon, I think it’s sweet that Will was so concerned for your welfare … fast forward a few years and he may well just laugh – kids can be so cruel! Clur x

    Your card is sweet and fun…clever of you to use non holiday themed stamps. Hope your bruises are somewhere they don’t show. That way people won’t ask so many questions. Glad you are too damaged.

    Love those Louie’s dies, and perfect stamping of those snowflakes too! Not too many, not too few, just right.
