A Male Card

I CASED this card from Deb Currier as you know I really struggle with Male cards.  I did change it up a bit to suit what supplies I had on hand.  Once I glued everything down I found that I had done it upside down so I am going to have to make another.  At least I can keep this card as future reference.

Thanks for visiting.

That Stunning Christmas Ornament

I created that absolutely stunning Christmas Ornament on the front cover of the Holiday Catalogue.  It is so easy to make and the only thing that takes the time is the stamping and cutting.  The Holiday Framelits definitely make the cutting easy.

I will be making these as gifts for my children as we have a Christmas tradition of swapping Christmas Tree decorations each year.  We have been doing this for about the pass eight years and I have a wonderful collection of decorations and they are all really special as you can see the thought that goes into picking just the right ornament.  I am going to have to get a larger tree this year so that I can fit all the decorations on it.

Thanks for stopping by and I apologise for not updating my blog.  The reason is that I have been busy in the garden as I just adore spring with all the new growth.
