Bah humbug - beads

Hi folks had a fairly quiet weekend as my grand daughter  was at home this weekend. The first time since the end of February. My it was quiet, no wirlwind running about and climbing all over, I did miss her though. Haven't seen her for a week she's been away for 3 days with her mum and today Daddy as taken her away until Thursday. I do hope the weather is nice she wants to go and play on the beach. They have gone near Filey so fingers crossed I haven't seen the weather forcast.
I have managed to do some stamping and glueing to make my card for this weeks challenge over at Bah humbug. It has to have some beads on it. I was out on Saturday and saw this stamp by Personnal Impressions and really liked it. I thought it would work perfectly for this challenge. I have stamped it and coloured it with pro markers. Glued on some seed beads then added dangly beads at the bottom. The background I cut out of Gold mirror card and used a Nellie Sneddon die to make the windows. the greeting is from a card last christmas. I couldn't get a good photo to show the gold  because of the reflection, it looks black on here.
Thanks for dropping by. Happy crafting. Hugs x ChrisB
