Christmas in June
















My last two posts were scheduled as I've been on holiday in New Zealand , Steve took 3 weeks off work and we went to visit friends as part of our trip. If you've never been to NZ I can highly recommend it ,great accommodation at very reasonable prices ,lots of good food and the friendliest people you could ever wish to meet.


My card today is made up of four elements - ribbons for the tree ,paper for the trunk ,the presents and sentiment are rub-ons and the boarder is a sticky strip.



Joins us at The Lollipop Ladies for challenge 47 -Jelly Babies + Ribbon .My favourites are red and green .


Unstampables - challenge 12 - Ribbons .Traditional Christmas colours.


The Crafty Pad - challenge 173 - Ribbon - When I run out of cards at Christmas and need to make a quick one then a tree aperture card with ribbon is always effective.
