Only about three weeks behind on this one..


But not only that.. I have been back to check and find that I got the instructions wrong, too (because I did not read them, basically). Soooo.. I'm just going to chicken out of telling you which challenge blog it was for, in the hopes that you won't know about DCM... and just pretend that this was how it was meant to be all along....

The theme was inchies, but you were supposed to use five of them, and I only used one! Never mind.. the moment has well and truly passed anyway, as I said..

So what do you think? I originally intended it to be a portrait card, but I think I prefer it landscape. Anyway, my first Christmas card for 2009! Nice and quick and simple, I think I may use this for my 'batch' cards this year.
Uses Penny Black 3897H - starflake, Black Onyx Versafine ink, black Bazzill CS, Cezanne font on my 'puter, and a couple of gems and a dab of glitter on the inchie.
P.S. Apologies for being AWOL for a couple of weeks... Was extra busy leading up to my hols, and now I'm on my hols.. doing the 'Staycation', and I mean literally.. Not going away, but mum and I are zipping out for days out every other day. This week, we've done Burghley House, Bletchley Park and Woburn. Next week, it's the beach, 'Oliver' in London, and then shopping in Cambridge. Not everyone's idea of an exciting time, but suits me down to the ground. :o)

  5. I love this card Chris - elegant and understated. Ideal for batch cards. I prefer it landscape I think. Like the use of the inchie as I highlight for the pattern.
    Sounds like you're having lots of fun days out. Nothing wrong with staying home. We've done that this year too.

  8. Hi Hun

    This is absolutely gorgeous. This is defintely the style of card I adore - simple but sooooo effective.

    Have a great time in your 'staycation' - when I read that you were going to London, I got a pang of homesickness - hope you have a fab time!

    Hugs
