Good morning crafty friends....

Three french hens!  I know french hens are very colourful, at one time, many, many years ago,  I did suggest to hubby that I would like 2 french hens as they are so colourful, that did not happen, we bought 2 kittens!! lol

So, as I said I know these birds are colourful but not for one minute do they have blue glittered feathers as mine do, but it's Christmas and if we can have reindeer flying through the sky then we can have blue glittered french hens

I couldn't resist using  NUVO Crystal Drops on this small card and here's a little tip.  If you attempt to make a drop and it goes everywhere but where it should, then you try to scoop it away and you're left with a coloured mark on your card all is not lost.  Reapply a good sized drop and, with the end of your pokey tool drag the liquid down to form an elongated 'tear drop' shape, just like the one on the sentiment lol

I stamped the image using a distress oxide in 'antique linen' and heat dried  it.  I then used a variety of colours on the image, die cut it when completed and added the die cut to the next larger  die in the set

I carefully cut away the word 'first' on the sentiment stamp and added the '3rd' by hand 

I used a scarlet ink pad for the inside stamping as well as adding a little green to the holly leaves

Now onto the card winner:

  1. What a fun little card!! This stamp doesn't say 'Christmas' to me - it could be used throughout the year! The Nuvo drops add a little 'something' to the card and echo the frame! Thanks June!

  6. Hi june, altho im only on a mobile,i knew saturdays card was a christmas card, ie 3rd day of xmas and all that, i just assumed you were running that theme on, so that we could replicate them in time for this xmas. Apart fr it being a christmas card there is no reference to festive friday visible to me. I hope you can understand what im trying to explain? Xxx
