So, dare I say it… it is only a few weeks to Christmas! (I know that there is the small matter of Thanksgiving to think of this week for my US pals – hope you have a wonderful holiday everyone!)
But yes, less than six – argh, six! – weeks to go…
So I thought I’d squeeze in a little extra fun for our remaining Tuesdays – revisiting some of my Trend-Alert themes from earlier this year.
I always felt a little sorry that my regular Trend-Alert Tuesday postings.. well, kind of, fizzled out… Truth is, it was all at a time when life got a bit too hectic and added to which, I was trying not to invest in trendy-wendy stash! Financially speaking, I needed to curb the amount of new products that I was indulging in, sadly
Well, time to revisit a few of those trends methinks – maybe I’ll even try giving some of them a whirl with a festive spin?
Here’s a card I made a couple of weeks ago… when outdoor photo shoots were still possible round here!!!!
The theme for this trend is ‘retro gadgets’ and this stamped typewriter image was a IRAK from my blogging pal Pauline, over at Craft Obsession.
It’s an October Afternoon stamp.
I made a background panel from assorted paper strips – using up all kind of scraps… Papermania.. Melissa Frances… Basic Grey…. My Mind’s Eye amongst others.
Then a few embellishments of a punched butterfly, buttons, a flower, a tag fixed with washi….
That’s all for now then.
Bye and thanks so much as always for stopping by, Rx
