The Green Christmas Tree.

Hello Everyone,
As you all know I have been stretched like a lizard drinking trying to complete my Christmas cards before my trip to the UK, only three more to make now and all is done.
The Artful Times Challenge Blog has a 'GREEN' theme going on this fortnight and so I thought I would use natures hue to make my next card.
Green is thought to be a cool and clean colour especially when combined with White, there is an underlying element of warmth in Blue-Greens and this is apparent in my Tree, as opposed to the somewhat Olive of the Bg, whatever the mix there is never any clashing with Green, it always relates a friendly vibe.

 A while back there were cards with a circle cutout to enhance an image I used this design here.
 My Tree is made from Tyvek fabric, then painted, the trunk is made up of stitched felt.



The Background is Acrylic paints, then dry embossed.
If you want to join in this Challenge hop along to Artful Times here.

Welcome to my new followers I hope I can inspire you occasionally.
Have a great week,
Smiles:)

Another batch of Christmas cards.

Hello Everyone,
I am still making my Christmas cards, I only have 5weeks before I leave for the UK, you would think that is plenty of time to make all my cards but next week we are off to Australia for a weeks break and hopefully grab some rays, before we hit the British winter!!!!!

Here they are: Enjoy.

This is about as CAS as I get.





Gelli plate Bg
G45 paper.

Inspiration for this card was obtained from Here- Peets Scrapalbum... I Love her designs.

Collection of Christmas Cards.

Hello Everyone,
I have been busy making my Christmas cards, as Rob and I are taking the long unforgiving journey to the UK....27hours. My niece is getting married November 30th ( I know it is the worse time to head to the UK) it has been 25years since I was last in Wales everyone in the family, except me thought it a good idea to go back!
I stuck to my guns for a good few weeks but they wore me down in the end, my stipulation was that I would only go if we flew business class, Rob did not hesitate and booked it up that day, I think he was afraid I would change my mind. as you would expect my family in Wales are very excited.

So I have to organise myself for Christmas and make my cards and buy the presents.
 I am taking cards with me, they are simplistic in design  as I think they will probably be thrown once Christmas is over. This is what I have made so far... enjoy.

Wet and dry embossed card  with cut flower.
Acrylic paints, dry embossed bg.

 Have a great day and thank you for visiting it is much appreciated along with your lovely comments.
