Fabulous Friday - Oh no Christmas is coming!

Hi everyone.  Friday once again and will warn you now that I think the rest of the years posts will probably by biased towards Christmas :-)

I'm so dis-organised this year.  How about you?  I hope to have little bit's of inspiration here and there along the way.

Today over at Polkadoodles we are starting a new challenge. For this fortnight our theme is White and One other Colour.  I have made the first of my Christmas cards, at least I think it's my first LOL!

I couldn't resist using the fabulous papers and poinsettias that are on the wonderful Frosted Winter - Octavia collection.

I cut and layerd the poinsettia to form it into a 3D flower.  Even the lovely pearl dot's are just paper ephemera from the collection.

For the inside I used the same papers and added a flat poinsettia to the message panel.

The white panels were embossed with a Darice Snowflake embossing folder and then all the layers, including the flowers, have inked edges.

The sentiment is also from this wonderful collection.

So, I hope that you are all busy crafting and getting ready for the man in red.  I will be back again soon - I promise.
