Ribbon and Bows

52 CCT are asking to see ribbon and bows this week.
What a chance to show off my Angel stamp from LOTV complete with
ribbon and bow.
Now i thought I still had alittle narrow gold ribbon but must have finished it up.
however i think the white with the gold probably shows up just as well.
Both the card and patterned paper comes from Kazazz,
from their Earth tones collection and I love this
particular patterned paper which fits Christmas just pefectly.
I have used masses of glitter the stars ,the wings and even down the centre of the fir.
Didn't like the empty space at the top so added some pearls in groups of three so it fits
Hazel's CHNC of 3 of something

See what a good girl am I even finished the inside. the wording does show up
better than that I can assure you.

I am recovering from my op but so slowly but
could be 3 months before I am on top of everything again.
At least I am back driving but only locally as yet.

Say it with Flowers

Today I am following a sketch at CAS challenge
I have ended up with 2 cards because after making the first one I thought it was
rather too much but having made it you be the judge.

It is really quite a step away from my usual with the button embossing and the
buttons in the flower centres
My daughter has decided that she would like the card for a 60th birthday
that is coming up.

The ribbon I have had for such a long time saving it up {as you do}
and not wanting to cut it.
The stamp is a Hero Arts from 2000 which I have coloured with tombows
and cut out.
The centre I dabbed with the corner of my embossing pad sprinkled
on Psychedelic embossing power and heated.
You can see it better on this photo.
Also used the Tombows for the greeting.

One Cold Day

I really like this and that is unusual because I am seldom happy with the end result.
Just the Blue and White does have a cold look about it.
This card will go North at Christmas to those who really get the cold weather.
I was really playing Bingo with the ABC Christmas challenge
following the Pearls, Blue, Lace line
but it also takes in the
Ribbon, Animal, Die-cut line as well.
I edged the white card with BG000 and added some Frosted Lace  stickles
to the ice and snowflakes.
Am entering this in:
ABC Christmas Challenge - Bingo
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge- White or vanilla + one other colour
Christmas cards all year round - Sparkle and bling.
CHNC 2 - Anything goes.

Pleased to say that I am now feeling good and beginning to appreciate the
good work that my surgeon has done.
Should get the OK next week.
Then it is back to my morning walk and exercise.
Used to walk the beach at 6am but its getting dark in the mornings now.

Thanks for dropping in your are most welcome.

Golden Christmas

52CCT are challenging us with White ,Black and Gold this week
and I had a couple of false starts until I decided to make a card
to suit a certain couple I know which made it very easy.
The gold ribbon matched the gold foil card so I used a different gold cord to attach the
greeting so that it would stand out.
That star embossing folder is so useful as the stars can be cut out and used

Couldn't get rid of the glare on this photo so the gold strip looks a different colour
but really it is the same as the single star and the ribbon.

Am entering this in:
52CCT - White Black and Gold.
CHNC 2 - Anything goes
Make it Monday-  Anything goes
