Hello to all my crafting friends, and a big "Happy St. Patrick's Day"
to all my Irish friends.
I have a very basic Christmas card for you tonight.
Two weeks ago, I went to the big craft show at Rosehill racecourse in
Sydney. This gorgeous embossing folder was the last one on a stand. It
had to come home with me, as I love Christmas trees. The folder is a
large one, therefore it is perfect for my square cards.
About 4 years ago I bought a pack of 10 large Christmas cards, partly
because I like to have some handy 'just in case', partly because I know
some people 'bin' cards as soon as they open them (handmade or not),
but mainly because I adore robins, and could use part of the cards as
toppers. There were 2 designs in the pack. This is my favourite.
I kept the inside of my card quite simple, so as to feature
the lovely embossed layer.

Just a short post tonight, as John is with his last student for the evening, so I must go and feed and rug our horse, then prepare dinner.
I will be back on Friday with the rather elaborate card I made for this week's challenge at Winter Wonderland. I have been trying new techniques, so yesterday I had very 'inky hands'. so until then..."happy crafting" and thank you for visiting.
