So with all of that technology in the silver surfers' hands, guess who is kept busy with technical support?
Dad was a Scots Guard, complete with red tunic and busby, standing guard outside Buckingham Palace amongst other duties, so I like to do a military-themed card when I can. I had the idea for this card at 2 a.m. when I couldn't sleep - which further prevented me from sleeping while I was working out the details in my head.
Poor photo, sorry - should have got my photo tent out. The background is faux distressed wood using Weathered Wood and Black Soot. I love how the grooves show through the image. The red/white twine is from a tag set from Marks & Spencer (got quite a few bits and pieces for present wrapping at half price and a bargain bag for a fiver because they couldn't find out how much it was). But I digress. The snowflakes are stamped in Versafine Smokey Grey then dotted with a Gelli Roll Stardust Clear Star pen.
I'm entering it into Simon Says Monday Challenge (to use a stamp) and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (Bling It On).
We had a little jolly up to Glasgow as a Christmas treat. We'd never been before, and were really impressed. The agenda was to see the Jack Vettriano Retrospective at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, and to visit The Willow Tea Rooms which were designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There are two tea rooms - one in Sauciehall Street, and one in Buchanan Street - we went to both. I can recommend the haggis.

I've had enough of uploading photos for one night, so I'll double up on the Advent Village tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
