Christmas Trees Card

I made this Christmas card using some of the new Christmas papers on Free Craft Downloads 
I decided to use the green /gold papers

To  make the card I used Christmas tree paper 03_l set 2    for the base card

I half inverted the design then printed it directly on to an A4 sheet of white glossy card and folded it "Tent Style"
I attached a green ribbon with gold spots on  across the centre of the card
to the left side I added a Merry Christmas greeting from my "bits and pieces" box and to the right side I added a green and gold Christmas star with some green and gold beads on it.

and  for the central Christmas tree I printed a sheet of  Christmas tree paper 03 set 2    again on to some white glossy card
I cut out one of the trees and backed it on to a piece of gold mirri card then cut around the edge to give a gold border then stuck on some gold and green pearl gem.

Sunflower card

Amongst this weeks papers from Free Craft Downloads were some lovely Sunflower papers

Earlier today whilst sorting out a box of my craft things I came across a Sunflower decoupage that I had made up a while ago  so decided to make a card with it

I used an A4 sheet of white card,
This was folded  in half to make an A5 size card  the front part was then folded back on itself
The backing paper I chose for this card was Sunflower 64 lsl
I stuck a larger piece of it to the back of the card and a smaller piece of it to the front edge
I stuck a narrow piece of Gold mirri card to the inside back then added a strip of dark green / gold edged organza ribbon to it,
I also added some emerald green gems to the ribbon and tied a bow at the top I added a gem to the centre of the ribbon
The sunflower decoupage was mat and layered on yellow card and then on gold mirri card this was then stuck in the centre of the folded back front of the card 

Megans Teddy Card

 Megan used a teddy bear aperture card and added a lilac gingham backing paper behind the aperture.
A pair of wobbly eyes were added along with 2 sequinned buttons and a little peach bow
Inside the card she put a backing sheet with a ladybird on a leaf then added a pink ribbon border  which had little white hand prints on it

A couple from Megan

Like me Megan hasn't done as much crafting lately, a couple of days ago she decided to make a  card and asked me to put it on here  

She used a blank diamond shaped aperture card, added a pink/white polka dot backing paper behind the aperture, she then stuck some peel off corners on and a little butterfly on the bottom left corner, to finish off she added a pale pink / white polka dot watering can with flowers in

She has also been using the Paddington bear digikits in craft artist (she is really enjoying using craft artist and puts me to shame with it at times )

This was her first effort with the Paddington digikits
I think she did well with it I hope you think so too

It is such a long time since I put anything on here
Without going in to too much detail  I have had Health and Personal problems, my blog has been one thing that has suffered as well
I am aware that most of the links on my blog don't work properly and am in the process of updating them this will take a while but hopefully I will get through them over this next week or two.
When I have the links sorted   Hopefully  I can start adding things on here again
