first of the season.

Hi all,

Up a little later tonight waiting for my daughter to return from a concert, she's gone to Belfast to see Greenday, so, I'm crafting a little to pass the time. First of the season here for me, haven't even thought of making any Christmas cards yet but I have to admit I have enjoyed looking at other blogs and lots of ladies have been super organised and have been posting for ages though when I had a little peek at Pink Petticoat's new Fairy Lights collection I was excited to say the least! I am a bit of a fan of the Petticoat and just think this collection is really beautiful. I love that it is so versatile and can be used for contemporary cards and well as traditional, the selection allows that. So this little number was made using the "Christmas Flowers" design along with the "crimson wallpaper", love this design can be used for so much more!! Printed the little Christmas Tree for buttons, instead I used little heart gems from Papermania, I punched some circles from some crimson paper I had spare and mounted up some spotty buttons also from Papermania. Finished off with a touch of Stickles glue and voila!!! I like it, cheery! Hope Catherine isn't much longer I'm feeling sooooo tired tonight!
P.S. Apologies for the pic, bit too close to the top, but this is attempt number four and I'm way to tired to care!!

Hi Anne. This is lovely! I love the little gem hearts and the paper that you have used for the background. I haven't bought this one yet but seeing your card, I am tempted! Hope your daughter had a good evening and didn't keep you up much longer! Tracey x
