With The Baby

Still busy making Christmas cards as you can see.....& not a snowflake in sight either, LOL. Coloured as ever with my Promarkers, the image I chose to use for this one is by Mo Manning & is called, 'With the Baby' & I constructed all the dp layers following the gorgeous layout at CLP this month. The red poinsettia paper has a fancy lower border but even  the ever-so-slight angle of the photos means it isn't really showing, LOL- just the merest hint under the silver frame below the angel's trailing robes. The card I used for the poinsettias is a gorgeously glitzy one with sparkle on both side though I can't recall where I acquired that from. The silver card I used for the frames is too, albeit a little more subtle but as usual, failed to get all the sparkle to show in the photos. Instead it looks more like shine. LOL.

The fancy cut-work was done using my Silhouette Cameo but I have to admit that it struggled with the tiny dots around the circumference of my shaped card base. Whilst it did cut them, I had to poke out all the little bits which, due to the density of my cardstock, were more than happy to remain in place!

The inside has a replica, though smaller frame as the front but rather than the biblical quotation I was thinking of using, I opted instead for an elegant sentiment from Mudmaven - simply because it gave me enough room to write at the bottom later!

Thanks again for taking the time & trouble to visit my blog & I appreciate the comments you leave so I know you have dropped by.

PS - If anyone has any thoughts as to how I can sort my sidebar problems out, please do tell. The actual problem is that I can add the pictures/links but each remain stuck at the top of the sidebar itself. When I try moving them the Save doesn't seem to work. I get a pop up saying there are unsaved changes....but it won't save!!!!! Sigh! I have tried clearing the cache etc - but this has had no effect. Any ideas anyone?
