playing in my room...

thank goodness the weather has cooled down...still waiting for rain but at least I can get in my room and make some cards....




made using Sue Wilsons Lattice Poinsettia background...frosty swirl embossing folder...and classic poinsettia...I did try cutting the background out twice to cut out the flowers but because I had used mirri the edges look terrible....the sentiment is from Tonic.....

still playing with TH dies...

this tree line is a die I bought last year and just didn't know what I was going to use it on but when I bought the Santa Sleigh die I thought it made a perfect backdrop.....
I used white gesso dry brushed over the craft card...
