I hope you had a good weekend. Ours didn't go exactly as planned. We did eventually get to the 60th birthday party in London. We arrived in the right road and we knocked on the house we had been given the number for. Only the person there knew nothing about a party, he was very nice about it. We went off and stood some way off and tried to phone - no luck. Just then our friend drove by and stopped and told us the right address. The number we had been given was 8 out. Later we got home to news that our son-in-law had fallen on his arm arm and was in pain. On Sunday our daughter took him to A&E and he came home with in a plaster. They suspect he has broken his elbow. So we popped over to them to visit.
A little while ago I mentioned that I needed to make a batch of Christmas cards for the people that my husband works with. Eventually I came up with a design and I managed to get them finished yesterday.
In the background is some gorgeous Crafter's Companion patterned card. Over this I place the Snowflake Square die from John Next Door cut in white glitter card.
This is John's Happy Christmas die cut in gold with a black shadow.
I used the poinsettia dies and the matching stamps to make the poinsettias. The dies and stamps make so many flowers at a time. I still have some left to use on another project. The ivy die was cut in green glitter card. I only used one die cut ivy on each card I snipped them apart so more showed around the flowers.
Here they all are together. They aren't exactly the same but I think they make a nice set. My husband is pleased with them. He did ask for 10 but being me I made 12 just in case. Of course they won't go to waste if he doesn't need them.
Enjoy the rest of the week
