Two Beautiful Christmas cards from Val
As you are reading this we will be making our way through central France to our 2nd Hotel stop just outside Paris, this always seems the longest day, mainly as it isn't as exciting as when we are driving to our holiday, although I am looking forward to getting home. I have to say that I am more than a little concerned about driving to the Ferry Port at Calais, we have read some horror stories in papers about the behaviour of some of the immagrants hoping to make it across the channel, they have been throwing rocks and stones at GB cars, heading for the ferry, using petrol bombs to throw in the road to get the lorries to stop so that they can jump on/in, I will be glad when we are actually on the ferry.
Please keep your fingers crossed for us xxx
I am so excited to be sharing two of Val's Christmas Cards that she has designed and personalised as part of an order for somebody, I am not surprised you get asked to make so many Val, your cards are stunning, both very different, I love the embossing folder you have used for the background of the second card Val, can you tell me which one it is please, it works so well, being so beautifully detailed means that the pretty floral spray around the bottom of the oval is all that is needed to finish this card so beautifully, I love those different coloured Christmas flowers, (poinsettia and roses), they look so pretty used together, unusual too!
The top card is gorgeous too, the Gemini die that you have used to cut into the card, decorated with poinsettia's top and bottom looks fab, the pretty spray of CE Holly Sprigs with pretty gems attached for berries, finished with a beautiful double bow feature gives the most beautiful finishing accent.
Thank you so much Val for sharing your Christmas card designs with us xxxxx
Love and Hugs to all,
