Aurora Reindeer ♥ Christmas Card


Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #73. er sponset av The East Wind, og som alltid er det 'Anything Goes' som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' på vår utfordringsblogg, du er hjertelig velkommen til å delta :) 

Har nettopp sagt farvel til min trofaste Cuttlebug (ca.2005-2006?) og kjøpt meg ny Sizzix Big Shot med Starter kit! Fikk den 600kr billigere enn listepris på et supertilbud i en lokal butikk, Handlaga, kunne jo ikke la det gå fra meg.. ;) Hadde mest lyst på Tim Holtz' elektriske Vagabond, men den får fortsatt stå på ønskelista en stund!
Oppdaget til min glede at CB kutte-platene kan bruke i denne også, som var kjempekjekt siden jeg har så mange nesten nye. Nå kan jeg endelig bruke mine lange dies fullt ut! Og se så pen den er

Just got myself the Big Shot starter kit, so I'm super-happy! First on my wishlist was the Vagabond, but I couldn't pass this up - huge discount - so the Tim Holtz dream-maschine will have to wait.. Maybe he'll do a bigger one sometime in the future that can take 8x8 and up? :)

The East Wind is our kind sponsor on challenge #73. this week at Creative Fingers, and as a member of the DT, I got this lovely digi to showcase :) The Theme is always 'Anything Goes', create whatever you wish! You are most welcome to join in! ♥
 

Here's a detailed shot of the fun-foam sentiment, it is such a cool 3D effect! 'God Jul' means 'Merry Christmas' btw. I wanted to show you the awesomeness that is Twinkeling H2O, see the shine? It really adds another level to your watercoloring! I added some shiny glitterglue to the letters, and glossy accents to details of the card.
