Bird and Holly

I just heard on the radio that there are only 17 days 'til
the big day...EEK, I'm not ready!!

Back in September I demo'd for a major scrapbooking/craft shop
(based in Sydney), at the big 4 day craft show in Newcastle. I have
been their demonstrator for about 5 years. One of the techniques
they asked me to demo, was an oldie (for some people), but a 'goodie'...

I decided to make a few of my Christmas cards using that technique -
peel-off stickers, ultra-fine glitter, and alcohol pens. 
This is one of those cards. 
Cards made this way are always well received by my friends.

A close-up look at the lovely image. Sadly, as always, the incredible
sparkle of the glitter does not show up in the photos.

As I am writing this, I am listening to a recording of 'Carols From Kings'...the soaring voices are the best way I can think of to put one in the Christmas spirit. John and I went to Evensong at Kings (in Cambridge) in 1998, and we both remember that experience with great fondness.

Until next time, thank you for visiting and I hope your Christmas preparations are better advanced than mine.
