Travelling home for Christmas

with his apples ! still laugh at this, still he will be healthy, maybe I should try it instead of xmas pud
NAH!! lol

here's the card I said I would show you the other day with the acetate lines on done with my scor-pal,
I have kept this fairly plain as I think it could go to a fella and they don't like fussy mussy do they! lol

Hopefully you can see the lines! was of course hard to photograph he he,
Edwin is coloured with copics and then I have used the fancy shaped nestie that I still haven't found out what it's called, job for me today me thinks!! lol
amended to add labels 18 ! one job less for today lol,
I attached the acetate after using a little talcum powder on to stop the snow sticking when shaken,

you can just about see the snow if you look hard enough!lol
My paper edges are distressed with white acrylic paint and the card stock is distressed with my distress tool too,
the snowflake, leaves and Doo Hickey swirls have been edged with vintage photo distress ink,

looks really plain to me now but like I said I made it for my nephew! who does so happen to be male he he,
sorry my daft sense of humour!!
