Blue and green......

.....should never be seen!!!! Well, apparently that is how the saying goes. But I am rather warming to the colour combo and have been working on some Christmas cards using those 2 colours. What do you think? ( Thanks Karen for the Tilda image with the basket..x) The card base is on Bazzill dotted swiss and then I have used up some really old paper stash that has been kicking around for a few years lol. Also used a mix of various flowers and some Prima crystals and pearls. The leaves are from an ash branch punch which is a christmas pressie from my Mum and Dad( I had to test it worked before they wrapped it up he!he!he!) and I have finished off with lots of sparkly stickles.




We are child free this evening for a little bit, Lauren is out till 11pm'ish with a group of friends at a movie night and Chloe is at a splash party at the local sports centre.....so, child free and what do I do?????Wrap a few more pressies without prying eyes to see what I am doing??? Sit and snuggle with my hubby on the sofa and enjoy a film in the peace and quiet????....Nope! Can you believe I stood and ironed.....YES IRONED!!!!!!! What a berk! Oh well, at least I won;t have to worry about it tomorrow will I?


Hopefully the weather will be a bit better tomorrow( to be fair it can't get much worse....can it?) I am planning going and picking my Mum up and scoot over to Herstmonceux to a Craft show, haven't been to one for ages so looking forwards to it. And then, if there is time, I hope to get on with some more cards....watch this space....and enjoy the rest of your weekend, whatever you are up to ...xxx

  1. Love the colour combo Anita - I thought it was red and green shouldn't be seen. Gorgeous cards of course you had to road test the punch! Wish I thought of that before I handed over the lovely punches that I bought for DH to give to me LOL. Nice punch - must keep an eye out for that one though I do already have some leafy ones.
