Christmas Charlotte - Whiff of Joy Challenge



This weeks challenge was to use red and green which screams out Christmas Card. I have used this cute Charlotte with her cat and I think she is just beautiful in her winter coat. I have used Basic Grey papers again as I am so in love with these at the moment. I am still struggling to get some nice Christmas flowers and have been to the local garden centre where I have managed to find a few of these Christmas Picks that I have now completely taken to pieces and at least I now have some nice poinsettas to use - the only problem is that they are rather big and will not fit all my cards - the search goes on... I have used 2 of the rectangle nestabilities to cut the frame for the image and the ribbon and brads are from my stash. Sentiment is Sugar Nellie.



I only have one more day left before I return to work. I am now fully recovered after my operation, but must admit that I have really enjoyed having this time at home and being able to craft in the afternoons rather that trying to fit it all in in the evenings. Never mind, I suppose I need to get the money from somewhere to feed this craft addiction.

Thanks for looking
