Window card

I've used graphic45 'Once upon a Springtime Collection' to make this card.I used sticky tape down the left hand side of the window. The flowers on the lace I fussy cut from a sheet called 'Flower Box by Lori Whitlock. The sentiment inside the window is from Abi's Crafts.

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 .
