A Christmas Gift........


I hope that life is good with you and you are well. I am really feeling the Autumn weather now, heating on and making hot soups!

Today I have made a card using 'Cocco with Present' from Magnolia's Little Christmas Collection.

I have coloured her with distress ink pads and have distressed the background with pumice stone then edged this and everything with walnut stain. The circle die cuts are nesties.
I have used Pion paper.
The Tag, flowers, heart border, leaves, swirl and banner dies are Magnolia's DooHickeys.
The stickle glue is star dust.

The letters are Quickutz dies and the Button Twine, Seam Binding and Resin flower are from The Ribbon Girls.

For the inside of my card I have added pearls to the design of the Pion paper.
The sentiment is Hero Arts

The Hellebore flowers are Magnolia's the leaves Magnolia DooHickey dies.

I have added Black Stickle glue to the centre of the flowers.

Thank you so, so, much for your visit I really appreciate you!
It has all been a bit hectic here. Claire my daughter has torn her Achilles Tendon, she did this at the beginning of July and after still complaining of pain. They MMR'd her leg and found she has broken her foot too! So back in plaster she goes. Bless her, she is amazing and coping really well with her two little ones, so we are kept very busy at the moment.

Picture of oweee!

Take care and enjoy the rest of the week!
