Across The Miles

Hi my lovelies, I've never been a big Christmas Card sender, I just don't have the time, I prefer to donate to charity and at work I send cards to each department, but I do send special people cards. My Uncle is one of them. Although he lives in New Jersey, and we live in England we are very close, so one of the cards that does come from me goes to my Uncle Rob, or Unc. The challenge this week at Lili's Little Fairies is for a Traditional Card, so I've used this opportunity to make a card for my Unc and Tracy.

I don't think you can get any more traditional colours than red, green and gold. I've coloured Christmas Bears Mistletoe with my distress inks and added sparkle with Gold Glamour Dust

The papers are either last year, or possible the year before from Basic Grey, I've distressed the edges and then machine sewn them using Top Stitch Thread, I've also added a couple Pearls.

The roses are from WOC, the chrysanths are from here, I've been quite generous with gold stickles, from here. I've also used a Christmas Mini Tag from LOTV. The gorgeous red velvet lace is from here.

Hope you're all OK, nights tonight for me and then a nice long weekend off work, I won't know what to do with myself, yeah right ;)
