Hey Bro!

Hello Friends 
It's a rather dull and gloomy day here today. While we were out this morning the 'damp’ in the air felt decidedly like the sort that could easily turn to snow.  We will have none of that behaviour, thank you!
I'm up on the Bubbly Funk Through the Letterbox.blog today using the December craft box.  This box is called 'Seeing Stars' and is full of glitz, sparkle and shine, but I wanted to make something that isn't for Christmas.
My brother's birthday is in the middle of December - if you have December birthdays to send cards for, you'll know what a pain it is to find them.  At least that's not such a problem since I started making cards - but it doesn't stop me moaning about it, of course.  
The December box has a starry theme, and stars are a really good stand-by for male cards, aren't they?

I love the gold glitter alphabet sheets in this new box.  They are  sticky-backed, but flat (not chipboard), so they are great for cards that you need to send in the post and don't want to pay the hefty 'fat letter' rate on.  I'll probably hand deliver this one, so I added some bits of cardboard under the letters to add extra dimension.
I chose card in dark red and dark blue for a masculine feel - I really love how these colours work together, and it was a joy to step away from the Christmas crafting for a while.


The December's 'Seeing Stars' craft box from Bubbly Funk Through the Letterbox is now ready to pre-order at  December Through the Letterbox box,  Here's a picture of the contents

That's all for this time
Happy Crafting
