More Christmas

That sounds a little bit like bad English, but when you blog you're allowed to 'speak' anyway you like, aren't you!? Well that's what I believe and I am sticking to it, lol!

Bad English or not, I'm just so impressed with myself that I have made a third Christmas card this year, wooo hoooo.... isn't that impressive, yeah okay, probably not. Some of you have probably made 10 or more already, but when one considers I didn't make a single one last year, then it is impressive, so there, LOL!!!

Snowy House, and thank goodness it is not my house that is snowy, was coloured with prismacolor pencils and blended with grumtine. I cut the image with my nesties long rectangle and layered it on 3D foam. I added lots of glamour dust, and lost of clear glaze pen, but my photos never show all these beautiful effects. It looks SO nice in real life. You'll just have to come visit to see for yourself.

I really love this stamp, the house looks so inviting to me. I imagine if it was on my street I would drive past everyday and wonder what it's like inside. To some extent it even reminds me of my house, it's also a double storey, has a double front door, only one chimney though and unfortunately it's not for the fire place but for the built in braai (BBQ), but my house is not that narrow, it's quite a lot wider and at Christmas time, it has a Christmas tree lit up in the one window! It also has a big wall with electric fencing, see, not so cosy! I'll have to try and share a pic at Christmas. Hopefully I remember.

I keep thinking it is Sunday today, thank goodness it isn't!! It is so quiet here, except now the parrots are on a roll, making one hell of a noise. And I can't hear the church bells, so I guess it can't be Sunday. I love weekends when I don't have to wake up with an alarm clock, but this morning some lost soul decided to ring my gate intercom at 6:20, who does that!!!!??? I first looked out the window before I answered, and saw a guy, with a collar and tie, standing next to his car and the boot open. He was delivering a magic box, for Mark!!! What the hell is a magic box, and there is no Mark in this house.... I was so not happy with him. I did manage to sleep another hour, but it was just not the same, know what I mean!

Now I guess I got to end this post, and go play ball with my babies. They have been waiting all afternoon but it has been SO hot, they would've died of heat exhaustion. Even the parrots looked a little dazed by the heat, shame, I gave them each a shower - with a water spray bottle and a very fine mist - not the real shower - lol.
