My first Christmas Card

Having signed "Lavvy's christmas card pledge" on the Joanna Sheen Forum, I have today eventually made a start on my christmas cards, just the one so far. The topper and backing paper were from Joannas Enchanted Christmas cd, with a holly brad and gold glitter board.

One picture three colour schemes

Yet another image from Joanna Sheens Cardmakers Year. I used the same topper but different backing papers, this image is so versatile. I cut off half of the front of the card and mounted the topper onto mirri card so that it is used as the opener,. Under the topper is a tag with Happy Birthday. Three little gemstones in matching colours finish off the card.

I've been triple tagged!

Hi, I have been tagged by Cynthia, Wendy and Sue. So here are my answers to the quesions:-

What was I doing 10 years ago?
Still recovering from a series of operations, retired from work due to ill health about a year earlier, not into crafting so my house was really clean and tidy.

2 Visit Australia and walk over the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

5 Save up so that I can go to the next Create and Craft weekend

Golden Wedding Invites

I have been making these invites for Mum and Dads Golden Wedding Anniversary meal. The letters, heart and layering is gold mirri, doesn't show up too well on the scan and the photo is mum and dad on their wedding day. I have printed the inserts in gold also. The edging of the card has been done with a gold marvy metallics pen.

Joanna Sheen Forum Challenge

Sorry its been a long time since I have been on here. Life just has a tendancy to get very hectic every now and again. Sometimes my body lets me know I have been doing too much and I just have to have a bit of a quiet spell for a while. Anyway I AM BACK!!!!!

Not the best of scans, but hopefully you can see it ok. I used topper from JS Cardmakers Year cd and roses vellum with some pink pearlescent card put through a cuttlebug folder.
