Good Morning Ladies,
I thought I would do a 'Throw Back' Card for today, this particular card was made this week 3 years ago, so December 2016, how crazy is that, it came up on my Facebook Memories yesterday morning and what surprised me was how similar the layout of the Poinsettia and Holly was to the Mirror card I made on Tuesday!
You can't beat a Christmas Card in Traditional Colours though, can you?
I will add the Original Card Description Below:
"Now onto today's card, it is another take on this weeks Challenge card, I used Creative Expressions Poinsettia Border, from Border, Corner, Tag set, cut the base part in red and then used the base and decorative insert for the white top piece, I added some foam tape and placed on a 61/4 squared piece of Linen card that I had embossed with 'That Special Touch Holly Border Mask' , yes I used a mask instead of an embossing folder, as I wanted a frame but didn't have one the same size. I then used the Poppystamps Stitched Poinsettia die cuts that I did while at Pats on Tuesday, the little ones aren't Poppystamps but Pat didn't have packet to know what Brand they were, they are a sweet size though.
I used Creative Expressions Holly Sprig die for the Foliage and added some red gems for the berries.
I decided to go for a pale gold colour gems for the centres of the poinsettias and the border.
I hope you like the card "
Sue was unable to come over yesterday as she had another of her Migraines, bless her, I hope you are feeling better today my lovely xxx
It just so happened that Sophie and Lucy had the day off together too, so we decided to go and do some Christmas shopping, we didn't get very much, a few stocking fillers and some more of the old fashioned foil ceiling decorations...not for me, Sophie loves the tackiness and was using our old original ones from many, many, years ago that she found in the bottom of a box, they have been stapled and stuck together so many times, I was so surprised to see them in the shops today, they were really cheap too, so she has some new ones to put up this year, she was really excited bless her, Lucy prefers to have just a tree.
A crafting day is on the cards today, what are you all up to??
Whatever it is, I hope that you have a lovely one,
Good News from Lynda.....the physiotherapists are really happy with her, they said that she can continue her recovery at home, so fingers crossed she will only be in another couple of days xxx
Love and hugs to all,
