A Christmas Postcard

Hello lovely friends, hope you are well!

I am so excited for Christmas this year, a little early I know! But it will be extra magical this year, as I have become a nana for a second time! I now have two grand-babies as my eldest daughter gave birth to another beautiful baby boy, eight weeks ago. My grown up children are in their Twenties and my youngest is Thirteen. I miss Father Christmas coming to our house on Christmas eve, so having the Grand boys, I can still keep the magic of Christmas very much alive! 

Today I have made a vintage Christmas art tag, which I wanted to share with you.

I created my tag using beautiful papers from the First Edition wild at heart paper pad and a digital Music sheet along with this gorgeous Reindeer postcard image

Here I have used Kraft card stock along with two Reindeer metal dies, which I distressed with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I also added white dots using a Uni Posca white paint pen.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by, I appreciate your visit!

Hugs, Zowie xx 

I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges:

  5. It must be your wonderful choice of colours with the festive theme that immediately make me think of gingerbread and warm spices when I see this. The vintage postcard teamed with the reindeers and music work a treat. Thank you for joining us at Frilly and Funkie xx
