For the Love of Garry

This is my Christmas card for my darling husband Garry, the lovely CC Designs Emma and Trevor represent Garry and I sitting on a bench at the beach with our mug of hot coffee from our flask !! lol how sweet
I masked up Emma and Trevor before over stamping the bench to make it look like they are sitting on the bench when this is really 3 separate stamps, I coloured them with Copic markers.
The DP is BasicGrey from the Figgy collection which is my favourite I also used Tim Holtz old paper distress ink round the edges before stitching the edges.
The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Adage ticket, other things I have used are;
Cream flowers from Prima
MAMBI Sparkly Crystals
Pink foil snowflakes cut with Martha Stewart punches and a loopy Martha Stewart boarder punch
The silver Snowman charm is from Making Memories
And the flock brad is from Deja View's.

It's a beautiful card!!!
Well, I came on to tell you that the hardrive of our main computer has gone to the docs as it crashed and burned today so I am unable to post up any cards at the moment. I am using the laptop, which is also a bit slow to comment..so I hope to be back with you on Wednesday...big sigh! What a pain.
Chat soon...
