'Tis The Season

As the big day draws closer, I have a card for you that has interesting origins.

I thought I had finished making all my cards and had put away most of my
 'Christmassy stash'. However, I realised I needed a card in a hurry. I 
inwardly groaned at the thought of dragging everything out of my 
cupboard, then I had a 'lightbulb moment'...within easy reach I
had a little box of bits and pieces I had prepared, but not used!

Even the card base was in the box, so it was amazing how quickly,
and easily the card came together. Even more amazing is the fact that
every element was prepared over a period of about four years.

I love this die cut. It was cut from shimmer card, but unfortunately
the lovely shimmer does not show in the photo.

I made about a dozen of these poinsettias, but did not use them all.

Dies - Cheery Lynn Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer, Poinsettia Strip B324; Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Festive Collection Winter Trees; QuicKutz Scallops
Inks - Distress Inks Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany
Embossing Folder - 'freebie' with Cardmaking Australia magazine
Sentiment - Tim Holtz Ideology Christmas

Please spare a thought for the many people who are affected by the unprecedented bushfires throughout Australia...several people have died, including 2 young, brave volunteer firemen a few days ago, many have been injured, about 1000 homes have been destroyed, many thousands of animals, both domestic and wildlife have perished. Many of the blazes are huge, and out of control, with no end in sight. This is on top of probably the worst drought ever, again with no relief in sight.

On that very sad note, I will bid you good evening, and say "thank you" for visiting.

Jennifer.  xx
