DAY 10 - 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS


Hi, Well this was an adventure for me as had never embossed plastic packing before, neat.....

I didn't have the snowman but I do have the bird, so went with that. Dressed him up in little red boots and fancy wing, thought he looked kind of smart......... Used the tree embossing folder for him to stand on and for the plastic I used a Crafts-Too embossing folder of flowers, not quite snowflakes but its the best I had for the job......... Oh dear I never realised it was so late....but wanted to get it finished. So am off to bed now, catch you all later........Have a lovely weekend and take care. Annette x

Netty, I'll say it's late. Not for me but for you. You did a wonderful job.
I just learned something. don't put rock candy crackle on top of perfect pearls unless you've misted the perfect pearls with water to set. Oh well maybe when it dries and cracks I'll be happy with it.
