Holly


When I saw the sketch on Sweet Sketch Wednesday I remember that I had a Floral Oval floating around my craft room that I hadn't used and I decided on making a white card. It also just so happened that the Penny Black Holly die arrived in my craftroom. I also used a Spellbinder Poinsettia die so I could hide the joins of the manipulated holly.
My new favourite Christmas sentiment from Simon Says Stamps from their Merry Trees stamp set haven't even looked at the trees yet.


Ok just realised my angle shot is up above well thats confused me this morning. I've counted up my Christmas cards I've another 35 to go that was bit of shock but I don't think I'll be making 35 of this one because of all those pearls.
It's been decided that I should move out of my Craftroom not just because we are hope to convert the outhouse but since Winter is coming and I was in and out due to the cold weather last year. So we've made a start, OMG 13 years of hoarding craft stuff that may come in handy means I've one heck of downsizing to do and worse still I'm going to have to be ruthless.

Lovely card, Debbie - you have inspired me to make a similar one using dies that I have! But like you, first I have to pack and un-pack! We are downsizing in about 10 days time and my craft space will now be a little space in the office - yikes!
