Lacy Christmas

Good morning,
 well it's morning lol, the weather doesn't look great but at least it's not raining... at the moment.
This is a Christmas Criss Cross card I made using older Pion papers and a gorgeous lacy square from The Ribbon Girl along with the Red & White Carnations, Burgundy Rolled Rose, Gutterman top stitch thread, Gypsophalia and Gold Metallic Twine.

The Berries are Magnolia, Ribbon from my stash and the little bells are from WOC.
I was really pleased with how this one turned out, I think the lace square is just beautiful.

I'm trying to get round all your blogs, as I've missed so much of your work whilst my family have been here, I will catch up :) 
Take care and have a lovely Monday.


The Ribbon Girl ~ Magnolia Only Challenge ~ It's Charming

Good morning dear Crafters, 
I hope you are well.
As August comes to a close we say goodbye to a lovely Summer, we've had some pretty good weather and I've been able to enjoy it with my family so I'm not grumbling.
And as it's the last Sunday of the month it's time for the Magnolia Only challenge at The Ribbon Girl and the theme is It's Charming (Add a Charm)

It seems like ages since I did any colouring (painting) I'm feeling a bit rusty at it so please excuse my poor effort...having my lovely family here as meant I haven't done much crafting or blogging but now September is on our doorstep and as the schools re-open I shall be busy crafting again. 
For this card I have used the following beautiful Ribbon Girl goodies...
Teresa used ~ 25mm 'Veronica' Ivory Flat Lace, 38mm Ivory Silky Crush Ribbon, Silver Fairy Door Charm, Stickles Stardust, White Chrysanthemum, 10mm Ivory Open Rose, Pink Semi-Open Rose Buds, 20mm Dusky Blue Open Rose, White Starburst Stamen and 3mm Ivory String Pearls.
Thank you for stopping by I can't wait to see what you've all been up to on your blogs.
