Fluffy Red Robin

It may seem strange to be creating Christmas cards in March, but the way 
this year is rushing by it will be December before we know it.

I am on the Fat Cats Card Corner design team, and this card was created to show
the versatility of the Marianne Folding Lace Square die, which I attached to the
card horizontally after removing the back panel of the die-cut. 

As is usual, the brilliant sparkle of the glitter does not show up,
although I took many photos from various angles.

This crazy weather in Australia we are more than 3 weeks into autumn, yet we are still experiencing temps in the mid 30s C., with very 'warm' nights, making sleep difficult. I am so over the heat, and having said that I am off to change into some lighter clothes.

Until next time, thank you for visiting.
