Cute Card Thursday with Sketch from Sketch Saturday
Here is my card for Cute Card Thursday which is angels and fairies this week. I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday which is a great one and a fairly simple on, but looks great when finished.
I have used Basic Grey Dasher again - I just love these traditional colours. Magnolia stamp is one of the New Christmas ones and at long last I have managed to track down some nice Christmas Flowers. I went to the local Garden Centre at the weekend and managed to find a poinsetta garland thing which I have now taken apart. Took me ages as there must be about 60 flowers and leaves on it. This should keep me going as I also managed to find a couple of other stems which I still need to dismantle. This garland was a snip at £5 which I thought was excellent for the number of flowers I will get from it.
I returned to work last Thursday and had forgotten how difficult it is to keep up to date with blogging while trying to fit work in. So, I apologise for not being up to date with my blog - I know that a couple of people have sent awards to me and also someone has tagged me - I promise I will get round to it over the next couple of days.
I have also just finished a commission for a local flower shop for some Christmas Cards. My husband has gone to drop them off today so I hope they are happy with them and hopefully more orders will follow from this initial one. Their theme for their beautiful windows and displays is traditional red, green and gold so I really enjoyed this one and have only made one of each design for them so as to keep them special.
I would also like to thank everyone who left lovely comments on my blog while I have been off work - they were very much appreciated.
Over and out!!
