Mostly Words

Good morning all and welcome to my latest followers. Thank you for joining me on my crafty journey and I hope you enjoy what you see here. Thanks also for all the wonderful comments, I do read and appreciate them all.

I had a lovely relaxing couple of hours at the hairdressers yesterday morning then got all the laundry washed and dried. After persuading hubby to make the tea I managed some time in the craft room too.

Image and sentiment stamps are from Woodware's Huge Snow set...I do love this stamp but wish it didn't have the lines of all the letters on it as I never know what to do with them!
I've stamped with versamark (stamping the "O" twice) and heat embossed then paper pieced all the letters. I think the paper was from Papermania, it was an odd sheet I had left. The 2nd "O" has been die cut and I've added a gem and some stickles before adhering with silicon gel for height. I then embossed the edges of the card before adhering to the card blank with foam tape.
