Merry Dotty Christmas


I'm still thinking of quick Christmas cards not sure this ticks the box but the challenge on Less is More is to use a rubber stamp, added that its being sponsor by one of my favourite stamp manufacturers Penny Black. It seemed only right I used one and this one is a slapstick called Circle and Lines its possibly never been used or if it has probably only once. I stamped in grey so it would look more silver and then I coloured them in with glitter gel pens to make them sparkle ( of the camera doesn't pick this up)
I wanted something differen than a fishtail banner but couldn't find one that fitted this sentiment which I wanted to use but found a die with this rounded end and added a Martha Stewart Holly punch just to take the starkness away.
Can't help thinking its a bit boring!
Well I've been awake since 3.30 when I decided I needed to go to the bathroom while there I could hear a funny noise (it wasn't me) but at that moment I was too tired to care till morning. I settled back into bed trying to get comfy when I could hear water like it was raining and it was running into the drains.
My first thought those blasted weathermen had got it wrong again cos no rain was forecasted for today if fact it should another marvellous hot, sunny day.
So up I got to peer out the window, yes the road was wet but not up the road and or halfway down, in fact water was pouring out from under our car on the drive. Yes indeed the water pipe that was fixed last year with the largest hole you ever saw as burst again.
And who is Affinity and what does that have to do with water and whats wrong with just plain Water Board. By this time I'm wide awake I did try to get back to sleep but it will be an early night to bed tonight.

  17. Hiya Debby.
    No way is this boring, it's gorgeous. Simple yet really nice.
    I have this paper, have a feeling I have used the other side too, is it blue snowflakes or something else. This side with the dots is gorgeous. Love it.
    Debby I have a set of Di-namics dies in the shape of four different buntings, wonder if this would be an alternative to the bunting you have use for the sentiment, it's a really nice set.
