Well I am back with another card, quite pleased with this one as I was just having a play around with shapes. Its so difficult to decide what my favourite embellishment really is as I love so many of them and there is such a variety, I even include lace as an embellishment but for this challenge its the gorgeous flowers which for me makes it even more special as I love flowers in general be it crafting or in the garden.
I have used white card stock to make the square card, First Edition Summer Breeze patterned papers x 3, Bazzill Basics Bitter Chocolate card stock, Bazzill Basics Vanilla card stock, Spectrum Noir pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 0, 48, 175, 163, 178, 171, 68, 137, 147, 88, ribbon, pearls, flowers, Foam Pads to make it 3D, Silver Glitter, Sentiments to be added at a later date, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Shapes Diecuts and of course a wonderful rubber stamped image from Crafts and Me called Black Rose.
Again that its is for now, so until next time, take care and happy crafting, lol

Here is the first batch of Christmas cards that I have got to show you. Before Christmas I decided to be very good and purchase plenty of blank white A4 card stock, I then worked out how many cards I would need for the next Christmas and with this white card stock made the blank cards. My next task was to decide on layouts and images for these cards which I have dealt with 60 of them and these are all in various stages of completion. Of all these blank cards I have batched up into batches of 5 cards to make it easier and decided I need to try to complete a batch a week.
So this is my first, I have used white card stock, First Edition Christmas Village patterned papers x 1 per card, Coredination Raspberry card stock, Coredination Heartfelt card stock, Bazzill Basics card stock, Lace, Gem Stones, Sentiments to be added at a later stage, X Cut Corner Punch, Cuttlebug, Embossing Folder Swiss Dots, Spellbinders Floral Diecut, Spellbinders Snowflake, Brads, Spectrum Noir Pens Numbers FS2, FS3, TN3, PP1, 0, EB1, EB2, GB8, GB10, TN7, CR8, CR10, PR1, PP3, PL1, BP2 and of course a lovely rubber stamped image from Crafts and Me called Catching Snowflakes.
Well that's it for me for now and until next time do take, happy crafting, lol
