Yuletide Blessings

Hello my blogging friends and I hope Sunday finds you well. The sun is with us, here in Dorset, at the moment, although it does feel cooler than of late. There were lots of fireworks going off last night so sleep was somewhat disturbed, they were very pretty to look at out of the window though!! 

I have another Christmas card to share today, again, inspired by some challenges.


I covered a shaped card with Annabel's Christmas papers. Being thrifty, I embossed what was left of yesterday's centura pearl card with a darice snowflake embossing folder.  Marianne and spellbinders dies to create the layered poinsettias and various dies for the foliage. I tied ribbons in between the flowers to add some texture and finished off with a papermania bow.

This is where the inspiration came from

Allsorts #231 - Christmas Cheer
Creative Corner - Can't touch this (texture)
Crafting With Dragonflies #14 - Make your own flower embellishments
Crafty Creations #246 - Make It Yourself
Crafty Ribbons #68 - Anything Goes With Ribbon
Sweet Stampin' - Shaped Card
 (My sentiment is stamped-hope that's enough, if not delete me!!)

Toodles for now and thanks for sharing your day with me xx
