 Hello everyone,

What a lovely surprise I had on Sunday afternoon..

An early Christmas, and Birthday and probably Mothers day..I can handle that, what a beauty..
I've washed everything in sight this Monday morning..
From my son and his cute family..

So now I'm all happy and clean, I have some cards to share..

Started with vellum,and splattered it on this day..
and smaller cards A2.

Die cut ovals and also cut ovals into the card base..

Die cut white leaves and flowers.. poinsettias

Also made frames, several of them to layer up..

Built the flowers..

Then added gold flat back pearls in the centers, different sizes.

This patterned paper was what I had intended for the Deer
ages ago..

So, die cut them in white..

Then die cut in patterend paper and this time leave that die cut in the die,,
Then get the white die cut and glued on top of the patterned paper..

and it has lined up perfect..

All of them..

Making use of the white oval I cut out, I used my snow mound doe to cut two mounds..

One for the inside of the card and one for the outside front of the card..

All my bits..

Printed loads of sentiments

Die cut and embossed with Spellbinders label die set..

Now I'm going to build four cards..

Added tiny snowflakes and the sentiment..

The deer and the white poinsettias..


All standing up and ready for their cellophane bags and travel documents..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
