Seasonal Greetings

With very best Christmas Wishes to my followers and those who take the time to visit this blog and leave lovely comments.  Have a wonderful time and ...

  Here's to a Peaceful and Healthy year to come.  

A simple card, white on a gold layer.  Stamped and embossed in gold.  Stamp used is a very old wooden backed one (remember when all stamps were on wood blocks??) from Papermania.

Pixie Snippets #368

Today is the start of the final Playground Challenge for this year which also means that the very generous Di has lots of lovely prizes going into the seasonal draw this time.  I'm in awe of her organisational skills in running this and the current post gives very concise details of what you would need to do in order to be in for an opportunity to win something.  Do pop along to see the super card which she has made using Prize A.

My card for this time uses quite a lot of pretty tiny snippets of various colours for the components.  I started with a piece of wood-grain paper to use as a background then die cut two banners, embossing the white one with 'snow'.  The next thing was to cut two twiggy wreaths, one brown and one kraft, which I then decorated with a selection of die cut flowers and leaves.   The final thing was to cut the word along with its backing.  All the 'bits' were cut from snippets in my scrap piles - the base card and piece of background being the exception.  While I had the dies out I'd cut another two wreaths and more flowers and leaves which I've made into a quite different card which I will show you another day.
