'Tis the last day of October, so in just a few short hours we will be
able to say "Christmas is next month"........EEK!!!
I have always loved white-on-white cards with just a hint of gold or silver, so
this year I have made several for Christmas, some very elaborate like this
one, and some less so. I apologise for the 'blueness' of the photos. This
card, along with all my other white cards are bright white in reality,
so I do not know if the false colouring is due to my camera or
my computer. My photos are taken in bright daylight.
A closer look at my poinsettia, foliage, and the gold bead cluster and sprays
which I made myself. They are very easy to make, and I have recently
made a large collection of them in many different colours and sizes.
