 Hello everyone,

 I think it is Tuesday 7th November 7.30 pm in the evening where I live, and this post is now live..

My days are all running together just lately.

So, I'm sharing today Christmas card # 13..

I die cut branches and berries and layered the pieces together in greens and reds, and added a touch of gold too..

Cut poinsettias and squished their petals and added gold Nuvo drops.

Then made this panel by scoring evenly and then swiping the ink pad down gently..
I have done it before and it's really effective and saw Pinky doing this technique the other day which reminded me, so I did it... thanks Pinky.

A closer view..

then die cut this frame several times, glued them together  which made it nice and sturdy..

then after making my clusters of leaves and berries, I started to add then on the card..

A flower in the center and a couple more down the bottom..

added some bells that tinkle away when you move the card.

Ye ole faithful Christmas sentiment die, in gold.

And there we have # 13 done..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..
