Just to say

  Hi all

I needed a '' Just to say'' card for a friend.  I will be writing a heartfelt sentiment inside to let her know I am thinking of her.

For this one I used a circle stencil to create two raised areas for the bee and beehive to settle on. I used a Lavinia stencil using remaining ink on a the blending brush used for another project. All the stamped images are from Card-io stamp set Summer Serenity. The words are from Sentiments 1. 

I stamped the tree on the top panel and on the card base and matched them up.

Thank you for visiting me today

POE Bauble and lights


Yayyy a new challenge over at Peace on Earth Christmas using the moodboard below 


I chose both the baubles and lights. 

I had just acquired the string of lights which were gifted to me at the beginning of the year.

 The large bauble I used a 3d impresslits by Sizzix using red velvet type cloth.  

The bow was in my stash and I drew the line using gold decoroller. 

To finish off I used liquid pearls dotted around the Stampin'up sentiment from the Sassy Salutations set


Why not come on over to POEC and join in with this fun challenge - Anything goes Christmas.
