Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome to the start of another week, as usual the weekend flew by in a flash, we didn't achieve much in the way of Christmas shopping apart from a few baubles for the tree! I think that the majority of the family Christmas shopping will be done on line, it's so much easier and you can have a cup of tea while you shop!
Now onto this weeks challenge, I though long and hard about the challenge this week, apart from Val and maybe one or two others a lot of you will be busy finishing your Christmas cards, I have to make inserts and envelopes for some that aren't standard size and write them and thats me about done for those. I do however have a HUGE pile of 'PHD's' , with that in mind, I kind of thought that you may have a pile similar to mine so this weeks challenge is to finish At Least one of the project in your 'Project half done' pile, it doesn't have to be a card, it can be absolutely anything that you have in your 'to do' pile. I have everything from ATC's, boxes, cards even a journal that I started and haven't finished, so I will have plenty to keep be going. If you don't have anything half made, maybe you have a topper that you made and haven't used or even use something in your Bit Box and turn that it to some flowers for example. Let's use up our 'bits and bobs' that we have laying around so that we are all clear and ready for the new crafting year.
Today's card has been partly sitting in my 'project half done' box in so far as I had die cut the 'Sue Wilson Poinsettia Edger' into that gold glitter card, loved it and put it down but never finished it, so that was the first thing that I grabbed this weekend, I had a piece of the Pink Frog crafts Red Velvet card left over so I married the two together, the camera has made the gold look more yellow than it actually is, the two go together really nicely in natural light. I die cut a Sue Wilson Poinsettia in the same colours to embellish the top section and used a flourish die to accent the Poinsettia.
The sentiment is one of Sue Wilson's too. I am quite pleased with it, particularly as it was destined for the recycle pile.
I hope that you have fun with the challenge this week and I can't wait to see what variety of projects we get to share next week.
Lilian we have really missed you this week, I hope that you are ok, sending huge hugs my lovely xxx
Love and hugs to all of you,
