My idea is, when I find the time, to make gold or silver embossed on darker cards - possibly black or navy blue, reckon they would look really striking. And a few little scattered clear crystal gems would make them 'pop' even more!
At the end of all of the celebrations I'll do a massive draw session for all the prizes using the one Mr Linky - which is on the main snippets post HERE along with details of exactly how to join in - so you do need to have entered one snippets make over on that post during this fortnight to be in with a chance :) Maximum of one entry please - to keep things fair for those who may not have time to craft. Mr Linky closes at 11am on Saturday 4th January so you do need to have added a snippets make by then to be eligible for the draw.
Just leave a comment on this post if you would like the chance to win today's prize.
Busy day here today/yesterday as I'm writing - hence the lack of time to make a card. We've got some sort of electrical problem in that the RCD has tripped three times today - meaning loss of mains power (we still have lights thankfully) and all the sorting out that entails. We're both on the case - Len is the one with the know-how and has the electrical/electronics background, as well as mind - I'm the joker in the pack and keep popping up with ideas. Some of which haven't been so stupid after all - but the issue might plague us a bit until it's resolved.
Len then braved the local supermarket for some bits and pieces and also brought home a lovely freshly baked crusty loaf of bread. So, after I schedule this I'm going to make us a yummy pan of chicken and vegetable broth, using what's left of the Christmas poultry.
Hope you all have a pleasant New Year celebration, whatever you have planned! We might be running to and fro messing around with appliances and flipping 'flipped switches'. Since 4pm we've been hopeful that he's found the problem - one of his Heath Robinson gizmos needless to say ............. and all has been fine since he removed it from the mains circuit - fingers crossed.
At least there's also another less job to do here - I thought we might have to build stables in the Playground to house yesterday's prize of all those reindeer - but it seems you really like them! Trust me, right now I would not be asking the Playground handyman to take on anything else! Happy dance :)
Love from Parsnip, Dudley and of course me,
