Christmas 41 and 42

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs.

Mother Nature conspires against us! I was due to meet with a lovely Blogger at Attenborough Nature Reserve yesterday morning for coffee and the rain was coming down by the bucketload and it was very windy so we postponed, this morning it is fine and dry, albeit a tad grey. Oh well Sally, let us hope it is kinder in the Spring!
At least I got three cards made instead LOL.

Speaking of cards, the two I have lined up to share today were very awkward to photograph due to them consisting of mainly silver mirri card, so I had to do them at awkward angles cuz you can see me in them nearly as clear as a mirror, that's my red dressing gown and hand on the left!

 Whilst looking for something else, I came across this Crafts Too embossing folder and I just happened to have some silver mirri card on my worktable for the card below, so I had to try it and I was surprised how clearly it embossed without taking the surface off.
I layered it onto black card from my scrap box then onto the basecard which was A4 folded and cut to 7x5.
It is so long since I discarded the sentiment stamp packaging that I can't remember where it was from!

 Basecard is same as above but cut to fit into 6x6 envelope.
Own teardrop tress cut on my old Cricut from MME glittery card.
Own stitched square also cut on the same old Cricut and layered onto pewter textured card from PDA.
Stars cut with Lea'bilities dies.
Both are very simple cards, still catching up with those filched by my Grand-daughter :o)
