Hi all, I don't know why but I feel rather nervous writing this post, I suppose it is because I have been off for a little while.
Before I start my post I would like to thank each and everyone of my blogging friends for the wonderful e-mails, cards and comments on the post that my son wrote. I did not know that he had posted that I was not well, he has been so good reading all my e-mails for me.
It really has meant so much to me to know that you have missed me and the kindness that you have shown me is awesome, so I thank you with all my heart.
I am finding it very difficult to adjust to my life without my beloved Polo, I know that I was very upset when I lost him but it seemed to hit me all of a sudden that he was not coming back to me and I was just a broken mess. I am feeling a little like my normal self today and actually made a card that my mum requested.
I do have a few apologies to make to my DT's as I have not been joining in the challenges and I am so very sorry for that.
I have made a deep shadow box card in the colours of red and white, I have used mainly Kanban Christmas items that I ordered from Create and Craft.
I used two A4 card stock cut at 51/2" across the width, the plain red card is pearlescent, the foiled red and white card is Kanban
I measured each end of the widths at 1/2" and 1.1/2" I used my Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Die cut for the aperture at the front, I used the Kanban Die Cut Glittered Poinsettias for for the inside and some small ones on the outside all have been 3'd with silicone glue, I used extra tacky tape for securing the two cards together, I added some die cut snowflakes red gems, die cut flourish and sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I have also entered this into the Christmas Card Challenge at
Money Supermarket there are some awesome prizes for the top 3 winners.
I think I surprised myself by making this shadow box card as I have not been in the most crafty of moods, I do hope that you like it, I will begin doing some commenting over the next few days so until then have a lovely day.
There is a new challenge over at both
I hope you will be able to join them
