Christmas Blues

Blue ,Gold, White/ Silver is the colour spectrum over at Merry Monday.

I have taken that to mean White or Silver and have gone for White.
The gold Baubles look gorgeous in this photo, with the reflection of the flash.

I am a collector of envelopes and the blue background is part of one.
Rather too large to make a card to fit {or too mean to part with extra postage} !
The blue insert to the card is from another.
The baubles were cut for me by my niece who passed away 2 years ago.
We shared an interest in card making and I have been loathe to 
use them until now.

Lovely to see you Megan so sorry I cannot comment on your blog.
I am having enough trouble with NBN dropping out all the time
so have no desire to add Google +.
Was much happier on ADSL.  NBN is only fractionally faster.
I wish I didn't have to vote but vote I must.
Fingers cross for the right outcome.

Scrap box special

Just a quick post this morning with a card I made using up a couple 
of pieces of very old DP.  It was some of the very first patterned
paper ever to come out over here.

The scallop border on the very pale pink card was punched
and had been sitting in a box along with various other pieces similar.
In fact everything about this card came from scraps
so a wonderful excuse to slip over to 
Pixies Playground and get into some mischief.

Have to dash.
Thanks for dropping in and for your lovely comments.

Use a sentiment

This week Hazel wants us to use a sentiment, I know I have only
used a very small one but a sentiment never the less.
I treated myself to a Tonic die which I am very happy with
and with the card that I have made.

The cute stamp was a freebee on one of the stamping magazines.
I am sharing this with.

Happy Birthday

This week.
Our one and only beautiful grand daughter came to visit her POP.
Living in Melbourne we don't see  as much of her as we would like.

Afraid the photo does not show this card off very well but days have
been very wet and overcast for the last couple of weeks.
I can't remember if the mauve border is die or punch as I had 
threaded the ribbon through it for another project but ended up not using it.
It had been laying on my desk for ages but seemed just right with
this DP.

I am sharing this with

Thank you for dropping in

Red Red Robin

 I haven't been around for a few weeks but lots of things have been
happening but I wont bore you with details.
There is a lot to get my head around.
I have been doing a little crafting, not as much as
I would like but never mind.
Here is today's card.

The robin's are small snippets of left over DP.
Looking forward to dropping in  the Pixie Snippets playground
and catching up with everyone and maybe getting a hug from Parsnip.
