XMAS JOY

CARD2-NOV-KIT-header

Here's a second card I created with my yummy Monthly Card Kit Club's November Kit . Two of the trees have been created with the iris folding technique {yes, I admit, I am adicted} ... love the happy and bright colour combo of this kit ... and doesn't those stars look like they are twinkling ... definitely puts one in a festive mood. Joy was created with a stamp from one of my acrylic stamp sets.

I have also entered this card for The Pixie Cottage's Celebrate challenge. Please visit the Pixies to have a look at the DT's gorgeous creations.

I am leaving you with a quick snapshot of a section of our indigenous garden. Can't believe how much everything has grown since the landscaping was completed at the beginning of April 2008.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend. May you all find time to unwind with some creativity on the side. Thanks again for taking time to have a peep here and for all your much appreciated kind comments.

  2. Weereens 'n pragtige kaartjie, vriendin.

    Ek is mal oor jou inheemse tuin. Dis wat ons nou eintlik nodig het met die waterbeperkings in PE.

    Lekker naweek en dankie vir jou vriendskap.
