…….. and it really didn’t take much work at all to just tart it up a little.
To start with over the original painted snowflakes I simply glued a wooden one and then a smaller plastic one on top to add some extra dimension.
I then glittered over all the wording with translucent micro glitter.
Followed by using a white Posca pen to add groups of three dots here and there and in the middle of the dashes that edged the board.

I tried adding some extra gold bits and pieces but that didn’t work, it became too much ……..
…….but I did find and stick a cheap set of battery operated lights on the back, weaving the 20 lights evenly through the snowflake.

I told you I would come back to the angel advent drawer below …….

Exciting, exciting news ……. Marc is coming to stay for a loooooooong state visit type weekend, flouncing in just before Christmas when The Towers will be in full festive mode ……. I have already put up the fairy lights up in both our bedroom windows! It’s so exciting I think we are both counting off the days.
The freezer is full of vegetarian delicacies and cola purchased by the gallon. I do have a little vodka, but we are both being very good so that may remain unopened and that’s no bad thing, but the Malteser boxes are stacked up high imploring to be eaten!
No doubt we will visit the antique centres and charity shops of Evesham, we may even take a trip to Crafters Companion at The Valley if Marc is up for it. If we don’t actually have time to do any crafting we will certainly be bouncing ideas off each other like world champion ping pong players. I need to tidy up my craft drawers, as Marc has already indicated that he plans to through rifle them. He hasn’t seen my new cupboards so he’ll be like a kid in a sweet shop. And, in the evenings we will be watching as much crap as we can …… including a lot of YouTube Poundshop shopping reviews and crafts ……… what are we like.
As you know Marc is the master of camera avoidance, but whatever we get up to I promise to take pictures, if only of Marc’s hands! Christmas is coming early this year …… Happy Days!
I started off by making a centre panel for the card blanks by simply sticking four strips of festive patterned paper along it.
Each centre was then matted on silver mirror card and then a thick red paper.
