Willow with lantern

Sorry I am still MIA, I have so much on at the moment that I just don't have the time spare to spend on the computer. So sorry that I have not visited you all for a while, hopefully things will settle down soon. I am scheduling my posts way in advance as I am trying to get two cards a night done over the next few weeks so if it looks like I'm talking in past tense ... I probably am lol.

I still think Willow with Lantern by Whiff of Joy is one of my most favourite stamps ever, and was asked to make some Christmas samples so this stamp jumped out first. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy as well.woj-willow-with-lantern

I have used these gorge shimmer SEI papers from The Hobby House, they have the most exquisite golden sheen to them - perfect for Christmas cards. The poinsettias are also from The Hobby House, I just spritzed them with Cosmic Shimmer lava red - it gives them a velvet look, really delish. The little spacers from The Hobby House were silver as were the brads, I coloured them gold with a Krylon pen.

Thanks for stopping by,
