O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

Goooood morning all!!
Well what rotten weather it is here this morning! Although, it means that when I'm back from work later I can have a totally guilt free, craft filled day! :)) 

I was at the first showing of Harry Potter last night and wow! It's fab! Kind of sad that it's all over though...

Anyway, back to Saturday morning and it's time for the Less Is More challenge which this week is Circles! I have decided to give a stencil that I bought last year an airing for the first time!

I think it's a Dreamweaver stencil and I basically drew in each circle with a pencil then filled with glue pen and glittered with varying shades of glitter. Very simple but I think very effective. And quick! This will probably be another design for sets of cards this year!

Anyway, off to work and then got lots of cards to make for orders...4 wedding and a 65th birthday card!
Have a great Saturday all!

  7. Great card idea. I love crafting with glitter and this is beautiful. Great start to Saturday. And I'm feeling the after effects of attending a midnight screening of HP on Thurs. I dont have the stamina for late nights anymore. But the film was well worth it ;0)
