First Christmas card for 2013

Good evening all.
I really haven`t had a great deal of time or mojo just lately but for some reason I`ve had an urge to make a Christmas card.I treat myself to even more new dies and found a couple of hours yesterday to play with them. Here is what I came up with,

I`ve used some of my treasured Papermania Silent Night collection papers for the background.
The sentiment is Inkadinkado cut out with a fancy label die from Caroles Crafts.
The Poinsettia is Spellbinders.
The Holly Leaf flourish Is Marianne Designs
The Ivy Leaves and the Pine Leaves are from Joanna Sheen and are fabulous dies, very much like Memory Box.
I`ve added some flat back pearls for berries and some glittered red stamen under the flower.
I used glittery stuff ( cough, a technical term lol) on the flower and some of the leaves but now I`m not sure about it.

I`m really going to try and get some more crafting time in and to catch up with you all.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

Pink and Flowery

Hello All,
I was asked to makea card for a friends DiL who likes pink and flowery. Well, right up my street.

The dies came out ( Memory Box Catalina Wreath and Chloe Stem) along with the flowers ( Wild Orchid Crafts) with a few finishing touches.
The Stamen that I`ve bunched in the leaves are from a cake decorating store, Cakesforyou.biz.
The DP is by Papermania and the butterfly charm I got from a craft fair.
Sentiment is PC generated,curved with a bone folder and finished with a flat back pearl.

Apart from this card and another one from the same order I haven`t done much in the craft room.  My mojo is taking a break. Can`t wait til it comes back lol.
