Blue and White

I have another card for you today and guess what 
Its a Christmas one too.

No that is not glitter on my desk just the reflection.
I cut out 4 of the Memory Box Madera corner dies and placed them with the 
points in the centre placing my sentiment over them.
Both the Poinsettia and the leaves from the 
Dogwood outline die that I have used are Memory Box too.
I felt the white card was too much so ran D/S tape round the edge and
used pale blue glitter to soften it.
It looks better in RL.  

Am entering this in:

Now I thought Ang might like to see my Fuschia Tree.
Well I can hardly call it a shrub can I?
Ang has a great tutorial on making these flowers and you can check it here
this gets cut back to bare wood in the winter
and it is not yet in full flower.
When it is I will be sweeping up a bucket full on spent blooms 
every couple of days throughout the summer.

Should have got a close up of the flowers silly me

Well thats all folks

  1. Wow! oh! Wow! to both your brilliant card and beautiful tree.
    All our Fuchsias were in full bloom till last week. With this relentless rain we are having they have been battered to bits.
    Really like that sentiment you have used
    Have a great day
