Holly and a rose

Hi All and hope you are all having a lovely day and that extra hour is great, but all I have done is been to the Garden centre and bought some more Yankee candles ( as if I dont have enough in the draw)
Anyway on to the beautiful cards we made with Jane using her latest Woodware stamps, and a few punches.

I just love this background with all the Christmas carols on.

 And last but not least the Christmas rose.
Happy crafting xx

Sparkly Christmas

Hello all. I am thinking winter is on its way, it's lovely and sunny but a very cold nip in the air. At least it seems a bit more believable for making Christmas cards. The below were made the other week in 28 degrees! not quite right and makes the glitter stick to your skin more! We did all look lovely and sparkly by the end of the day.

 I think there is a bit of everything here, embossing, stamping, die cuts and of course GLITTER.

 This was a class with Alexandra Kamann it was great fun and some lovely ideas. Off to make some more now, happy crafting and keep warm xx

Morning all on this lovely bright sunny October morning and my is it hot, very bizarre.
This was from a class held last month, no need to say it was Jane Gill I don't think. Who else makes such beautiful flowers.

 I think the candy stripe paper really sets these flowers off, and my dodgy swirls done by hand with perfect pearls, then put my big hand in in before it dried!
Happy Sunday to you all, I have been making Christmas cards the last two days, seems weird in this lovely sunny weather we are having, feels like we are in Australia, with the sun at Christmas. Be back soon xx
