A Christmas card - no flowers this time!

Started the Christmas cards and as it's a long weekend here in Australia this week, there is no class on Monday night, so a good chance to do something without flowers for a change.  I used a Fiskars Corner/Border punch and layered it over Gold embossed paper, then used gold embossing paste for the stencil, I added Martha Stewarts gold glitter to the embossing paste before it dried.

Once I got the instructions sorted for this flower it was a dream to make, I love ones like this that you can do in such a huge range of colours, and they are soooo big, you really only need one for a small card,
Hope you girls enjoy it as much as I did

I thought this photo was a little far away so here is a close up of a couple of the flowers

Lily of the Valley

I must admit this is one flower that makes me homesick for England, we used to have a wild patch in the garden of the last house I lived in.  It is notoriously hard to grow, but again will grow in the hedgerows and woodlands as a weed.  I was lucky and it got established in a small corner of the garden under a tree, and used to come up each year, it was always something I looked forward to. It is something I can't say I have seen here in Australia, perhaps my friends will be able to tell me on Monday.  Today is my Fathers birthday, he is 85yrs young and has spent the day making our Xmas puddings!! he baked the Xmas cake yesterday.......I hope he has another 10yrs with us, as it is one job I don't want to take over!!

Lacie with Icecream

Hi again, my I am in a crafting mood, this is the third card in five days, I am impressed even with myself........ Due to unforseen circumstances, the card I put up for doing last Monday couldn't be done due to a broken punch, I have ordered more punches so we will do that one next Monday........see previous post!!  On Monday night we did Bouganvillea and I was very impressed with the quality of your cards you all did a great job (should have taken pics)  Anyway, enough rambling here is a Jo Manning image that I have just finished, love her images they are sooooo cute.......Here is Lacie with icecream and doesn't she look as if she is enjoying it?
