DCM - In The Frame

The very latest dare from the DCM, is frames. Well, recently they seem to appear frequently on my designs so it was hard to come up with something different. Where on earth I got the idea to make Christmas cards I just don't know, Im certainly not feeling festive..lol!
Card 1, frame made with rich deep blue velvet ribbon. Tree is stamped onto artists watercolour paper to give it a soft bled effect. I randomly stampe tiny snowflakes & attached tiny silver brads at each intersection. The air was blue while doing that..

Card 2, papers are from K&Co, an old pack of Xmas from two years ago. Frame alcohol inked with Adirondacks' Mountain Vineyards set. Stamps, Dovecraft, Hampton Arts. Leftover ribbon pieces..

Now for a Tag.

4 Places I have worked.

Bishop Burton College of Agriculture, Warners' French Lingerie factory, Select Education, Johnstone Insurance.

4 Places I have Lived.

Immingham. Bishop Burton, Beverley. Sedgebrook, Grantham. Scunthorpe.

4 Places I have visited on holiday.

Brixham, Devon. Flamborough Head, Bridlington. Troutbeck, Ambleside. Corbridge, Northumberland.

4 Favourite Foods.

Goats' cheese salad. Roast Lamb. Chicken Saag. Spring Rolls.

4 Places I'd rather be now!

Just right here at home..........
